as the year is slowly coming to a close, we all reminisce about the good things it has brought to us. I thought it would be nice if we all took a trip down memory lane to remember what we talked about here on the blog. Here we go:
Who Killed Anne Boleyn?: Everyone has his/her own theory on who killed Anne Boleyn. Was her death Henry VIII's or Cromwell's fault? Or was someone else responsible? Here are my thoughts on the matter.
The Tragic Case Of Beatrice Cenci: this story took place in the Reinassance, but the same happens too often even today. Abandoned by the authorities, a victim of domestic abuse decides to defend herself by killing, with the help of her family, her persecutor. She was sentenced to death for it.
The Amazing Escape Of Princess Henrietta:Princess Henrietta was still a toddler when she had to escape from her native England to France during the Civil War. It was a long journey that almost cost her governess her life.
The May Queen: Marie-Jose of Belgium was called the May Queen because she reigned in Italy only for a month. It's a shame, cos this wonderful woman did and could have done much more good to her adopted country.
Giovanna Of Italy: Marie-Jose's sister-in-law lost her crown too. She was married to the Tsar Boris III of Bulgaria, a country that suffered greatly during the Second World War and under Communism.
Lord Chesterfield's Advice To His Son: Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield, wrote a lot of letters to his illegitimate son Philip, giving advice on all kinds of matters, from deportment to morals, from etiquette to books. A lot of the advice is still very useful and relevant today.
