reyna Elizabeth Wydeville, the slandered reyna of England has spent centuries judged to be a greedy and horrid woman, characteristics written of her sa pamamagitan ng her many enemies. In this volume, Okerlund delves into the preconceptions in order to shed light on the truth - was she truly a vile woman or was she a strong individual who endured where others crumbled?

It does appear that Elizabeth Wydeville was indeed a much madami complex personality than sources have made out in the past. A deeply pious woman, Okerlund determines that the marriage of Elizabeth and Edward IV was truly a pag-ibig match and not...

Empress Maria Theresa
Hi everyone, since I had posted about my favourite Historical Figure. I would like to write about 2 famous monarchs during the 18th century, and they are Maria Theresa of the Holy Roman Empire and her Russian counterpart, Catherine the Great.

 Victoria and Abdul!
Victoria and Abdul!

When her son, King Edward VII ascended the British throne. He destroyed all of John Brown's and Karim's properties, unlike the former, Abdul was still...
