Revolutionary War sites are all around me. I should have checked for family cemetery sites with @caityleigh83 since my dead relatives are everywhere. 
Also stinky, rotting acorns that smell like dog poop on my boots. Fun to deal with in a hotel room but that's another story.

John Davison Rockefeller was the first human who had a fortune of more than one billion dollars. He made his fortune with oil. If you take inflation into account, then he wasn't the first though. ⁠

➸ | Queen of France and Navarre as the first wife of King Louis XIV. Famed for her virtue and piety, she was only barely able to fulfill her duty as queen by producing a male heir to the throne, since five of her six children died in early childhood.

She is frequently viewed as an object of pity in historical accounts of her husband's reign, since she had no choice but to tolerate his many illicit love affairs.

The first time Maria Theresa ever saw the Palace of Versailles was on 25 October 1660. At that time, it was just a small royal residence that had been Louis XIII's hunting lodge not far from Paris. Later, the first building campaign (1664–1668) commenced with the Plaisirs de l’Île enchantée of 1664, a week-long celebration at Versailles ostensibly held in honour of France's two queens, Louis XIV's mother and wife, but exposed Louise de La Vallière's role as the king's maîtresse-en-titre. The celebration of the Plaisirs de l’Île enchantée is often regarded as a prelude to the War of Devolution, which Louis waged against Spain. The first building campaign witnessed alterations in the château and gardens in order to accommodate the 600 guests invited to the celebration.

Ibn Battuta's Travels to Egypt (5th edition) is the oldest book I own.. It dates back to 1966 and it's still in good condition sitting proudly on my bookshelf judging me all day ⊂( ・w・ )⊃
◼️◼️◼️◼️◼️◼️◼️◼️◼️◼️◼️◼️◼️
In Battuta=ابن بطوطة، the Moroccan scholar, is known to be the greatest explorer of all times.. In the 14th century, he spent nearly 30 years traveling 75,000 miles across Africa, the Middle East, India and Southeast Asia *0*)//
◼️◼️◼️◼️
Though little known outside the Islamic world, Ibn Battuta spent half his life tramping across the vast lands of the Eastern Hemisphere.. He ventured into over 40 modern day nations, moving on foot, by camel caravans and by sea, often risking his life just to satisfy his wanderlust *v*)//
◼️◼️◼️◼️
At the age of 21, he left his homeland, Marocco, for Middle East to complete his hajj, the Muslim pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca, wishing to study Islamic law along the way.. His travels might have ended there, but after finishing his pilgrimage, he decided to continue wandering the Muslim world or “Dar Al Islam=دار الإسلام.” (*v*)//
◼️◼️◼️◼️
When he finally returned home after 29 years of wondering and exploring the world, he recorded his adventures in a massive travelogue known as the "Al Rihla=الرحلة" (ノシ*`꒳´*)ノシ
◼️◼️◼️◼️
Do you have any interesting old books to show off? Lemme know in the comments (ノシ*`꒳´*)ノシ✨

This picture shows two bullets that collided with each other during the Battle of Gallipoli. The darker one has rifling and was this shot by a rifle, while the other round does not, telling us that what probably happened here was a Ottoman shot hit the ammo pouch of a British/ANZAC soldier and his .303 saved his life.
—
The fight for Gallipoli raged from February 17th of 1915 to January 9th of 1916. The allies, originally Winston Churchill, had believed that this was the best way of crippling the Central Powers and sending aid to the dwindling Russia by crippling the Ottoman Empire. The Ottomans had already been decisively defeated in multiple battles in the war with the British and Russians and it seemed like a victory parade in Constantinople was very possible within a few weeks after landing in Gallipoli.
The British were wrong. Their enemy was well fortified and showed the world one of the best defensive fights ever seen.

Catherine of Valois (1401-1437)
-

She was the youngest of twelve siblings, and her eldest sister had been Queen of England before her as the wife of Richard II. She grew up in the shadow of her father’s insanity and was apparently quite a neglected child.
-

As early as 1413, she was suggested as a bride for Henry V of England, but this was at first not successful. He once again demanded her hand in 1415, along with a dowry of 2 million crowns and used the rejection of his demands as an excuse to invade France. He won his greatest victory at Agincourt on 25 October 1415. -

In 1420, Catherine married Henry, and they travelled from Paris to Rouen and Calais before sailing for Dover. On 24 February 1421, Catherine was crowned Queen at Westminster Abbey. Not much later, Henry left on progress around England, leaving Catherine in London initially. She rejoined him at Easter later that same year. She had conceived a child shortly after her arrival in England and gave birth to the future Henry VI on 6 December 1421. Henry never saw his son as he had left for France before his birth. Catherine joined her husband in France in May 1422 and left the young Prince behind. Henry fell ill with dysentery while in France and died on 31 August 1422. She was left with nothing; she was not granted the regency of France or England and not even the custody of her son, now King Henry VI. She joined Henry’s funeral procession back to England and was reunited with her son.

I read somewhere a long time ago that one of Henry VIII's cooks had a recipe for macarons, and whether that's true or not I love the idea that Cromwell may have munched on them 🤣
.
Perfect for folks who loved Wolf Hall but want to learn more about Cromwell's meteoric rise... and his cataclysmic fall. Borman is one of my favorite Tudor historians, and she does a great job showcasing that Cromwell was neither good or evil, but perhaps a generous helping of both.

Hi all, I’m Emily and I’m next to introduce myself 🖤

Age: 21
Nickname: Mistress of the Hounds and Horses
Studies: BSc(Hons) Medieval History
Favourite Period: Anything from 500-1500, but I particularly love the Hundred Years’ War + Wars of the Roses... all the chaos!
Favourite Monarch: Henry V... cliche I know.
Hogwarts House: Gryffindor 🦁 (the only non-Slytherin in this quartet and I feel it 😫🤣)
Favourite Book: Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone (because it means so much to me!)
Favourite Film: Untouchables or, 8 Below
Favourite TV Show: Right Now? Outlander
Personal Instagram: @hopeandsputnik
Pass Times: When not studying I’m either Eventing (horses), I’m hiking or doing Dog Agility. I’m a big lover of the outdoors! That and dancing K-Pop with @missburnsregrets!
Extra Info: I have a dog, Sputnik and a horse, Hope who are my life. Every waking out is dedicated to them. I have particularly interest in R+ training. Eventing Hope and Hiking with Sputnik are what makes my heart happy - but what’s even more awesome is when the Events are run on historical estates grounds, or my hikes take me up and into ruins... I love letting my two best friends experience history too! 🖤

USS Oklahoma (BB-37) passes beneath the Bay Bridge in 1937, some four years before her demise at Pearl Harbor. Oklahoma was the last US Navy battleship built with reciprocating engines instead of turbines, though her sister Nevada (BB-36) did not share that trait. The old battleship, among the slowest in the fleet and no longer able to reach even 20 knots, was due to be replaced in 1942 by the then-building South Dakota class.

Princess Victoria Louise of Prussia (1892-1980).
German princess.
.
She was the only daughter and the last child of German Emperor Wilhelm II and Augusta Victoria of Schleswig-Holstein. Her 1913 wedding to Prince Ernest Augustus of Hanover was the largest gathering of reigning monarchs in Germany since German unification in 1871, and one of the last great social events of European royalty before the First World War began fourteen months later.
.
She was intelligent like her paternal grandmother Empress Frederick, stately and dignified like her mother, but imperious and willful like her father. She enjoyed being the center of attention, and was her father's favourite.
.
She married Ernest Augustus in 1913. It was hailed in the press as the end of the rift between the House of Hanover and House of Hohenzollern that had existed since the 1866 annexation. Despite press fixation on the union as a love match, it remains unclear if the match was one of love or politics.
They had five children.
.
Several of Victoria Louise's brothers were early members of the Nazi party, including former Crown Prince Wilhelm. While Ernest Augustus never officially joined the party, he donated funds and was close to several leaders. As a former British prince, Ernest Augustus as well as Victoria Louise desired a rapprochement between England and Germany. Ostensibly desiring to pursue an alliance with the UK, in the mid-1930s, Adolf Hitler took advantage of their sentiment by asking the couple to arrange a match between their daughter Princess Frederica and the Prince of Wales but they refused.
.
After the war, Victoria Louise spent much of her time attending public events. She also spent time helping with philanthropic causes.

To Pimp a Butterfly is the third studio album by American rapper Kendrick Lamar. It was released on March 15th, 2015 through Top Dawg Entertainment, distributed by Aftermath Entertainment and Interscope Records. The album was recorded in studios throughout the United States, with production from Sounwave, Terrace Martin, Taz "Tisa" Arnold, and several other high-profile hip hop producers. The album incorporates elements of jazz, funk, soul, spoken word, and avant-garde music and explores a variety of political and personal themes concerning African American culture, racial inequality, depression, and institutional discrimination. It debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 and received widespread acclaim from critics, who praised its musical scope and the social relevance of Lamar's lyrics. It was nominated for Album of the Year and won Best Rap Album at the 58th Grammy Awards. The album's immediate influence was felt as "a pantheon for racial empowerment," according to Will Butler of Gigwise, who also argued that the record helped create a respected space for conscious hip hop and "will be revered not just at the top of some list at the end of the year, but in the subconscious of music fans for decades to come" (2015) #2010shistory #history #topimpabutterfly #hiphop #rap #kendricklamar @kendricklamar #historyinpictures #ilovehistory #historygram #historygeek #historybuff #historical
