This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle, This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a wall Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happier lands,-- This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England. ~~William Shakespeare, Richard III

Merry Christmas to all!!

Lady Gwyn will be enjoying the holidays and all the preparations leading up to it this week, so there won't be any new posts until the 28th (unless I come across something really interesting of course!). I will have a couple of reviews to post and a post/discussion about one of Henry VIII's wives. I also will be getting my post up for Historical Tapestry's ABC Challenge (we're on the letter C).

Hoping to get some books or money to buy books this year!

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Christmas!!


  1. Wishing you and your loved ones a very safe and happy Christmas.
