Although they used to go visit grandma together, George, the King of England, still decided to declared war on his first cousin Wilhelm on August 4th 1914. World War I was also believed to be a contributing factor to the 1918 influenza epidemic which caused 50 to 100 million deaths worldwide. #emperor #leader #headofstate #king #royalfamily #royalhouse #nobility #bluebloods #worldwarI #1918 #genocide #skullandbones #skull #humanskull #crossbones #nazism #kingofengland #familyfight #influenza #royalservant #trenchwarfare #warandpeace #globalwar

On This Day In History . 21 September 1327 . King Edward II died . . ◼ On 23 September Edward III was informed that his father the deposed king Edward II had died at Berkeley Castle during the night of 21 September. . ◼ The king had been imprisoned Berkeley Castle in Gloucestershire, since around 5 April 1327. Most historians believe that Edward probably was murdered on the orders of the new regime, although it is impossible to be certain.  If Edward did die from natural causes, his death may have been hastened by depression following his imprisonment. . ◼ Edward's body was embalmed at Berkeley Castle, where it was viewed by local leaders from Bristol & Gloucester. It was then taken to Gloucester Abbey on 21 October, & on 20 December Edward was buried by the high altar, the funeral having probably been delayed to allow Edward III to attend in person. . ◼ Gloucester was probably chosen because other abbeys had refused or been forbidden to take the King's body, & because it was close to Berkeley. The funeral was a grand affair & cost £351 in total, complete with gilt lions, standards painted with gold leaf & oak barriers to manage the anticipated crowds. . ◼ A temporary wooden effigy with a copper crown was made for the funeral; this is the first known use of a funeral effigy in England, & was probably necessary because of the condition of the King's body, which had been dead for three months. . ◼ Edward's heart was removed, placed in a silver container, & later buried with Isabella at Newgate Church in London. . ◼ His tomb includes a very early example of an English alabaster effigy, with a tomb-chest & a canopy made of oolite & Purbeck stone. Edward was buried in the shirt, coif & gloves from his coronation, & his effigy depicts him as king, holding a sceptre & orb, & wearing a strawberry-leaf crown. The effigy features a pronounced lower lip, & may be a close likeness of Edward. . ◼ The tomb was opened by officials in 1855, uncovering a wooden coffin, still in good condition, & a sealed lead coffin inside it. The tomb remains in what is now Gloucester Cathedral, & was extensively restored between 2007 & 2008 at a cost of over £100,000 . . .

Does your family tree hold any fascinating business journeys? . Here’s one of mine... it includes Kings of England, Picasso & the London Stock Exchange . Bass, Ratcliff & Gretton Ltd heard of it? Well it was a brewery first formed 241 years ago in 1777 and today you’ll still see the product on the shelves in your local supermarket or at the bar of your local pub, within 100 years of it became the highest-selling beer in the UK and had become the largest brewery in the world!! Its pale ale was exported throughout the British Empire, and the company's distinctive red triangle became the UK's first registered trade mark. . In 1902 King Edward VII visited the Brewery and started the making of a new batch, the beer was then stored in cask to mature. It wasn't until King George V coronation In 1911, that the first large batch was released, I’m glad we still have an unopened bottle at home. The beer has amazingly appeared in over 40 paintings by Picasso, mostly at the height of his Cubist period around 1914 and The company became one of the original London Stock Exchange FT 30 companies when the listing was established in 1935. . Today the world famous Red Triangle is still going strong, Bass Ale is a top ten premium canned ale in the UK. . #1777 #pub #worldfamous #redtriangle #brewery #uk #business #journey #kingofengland #picasso #londonstockexchange #britishempire #entrepreneursofinstagram #entrepreneurship #entrepreneur #entrepreneurlife #family #familytree #gretton #bassale

Always amazed at the ages of some of the buildings in Cambridge. This church was built somewhere around the 1400s and it’s still here today looking (probably) very much as it did back then - at least on the outside?! #cambridge #cambridgeshire #livingincambridge #icambridge #cambridgeuk #visitengland #churchesofengland #cambridgechurches #cambridgecityliving #kingofengland #cambridgehistory #cambridgearchitecture #buildingsincambridge #vintageowlphotography

On This Day In History . . 16 September 1701 . The deposed & exiled King James II of England died . . ◼ He died of a brain haemorrhage on 16 September 1701 at Saint-Germain-en-Laye. James's heart was placed in a silver-gilt locket & given to the convent at Chaillot, & his brain was placed in a lead casket and given to the Scots College in Paris. His entrails were placed in two gilt urns & sent to the parish church of Saint-Germain-en-Laye & the English Jesuit college at Saint-Omer, while the flesh from his right arm was given to the English Augustinian nuns of Paris. . ◼ James's body was laid to rest in a triple sarcophagus (consisting of two wooden coffins & one of lead) at the Chapel of Saint Edmund in the Church of the English Benedictines in the Rue St. Jacques in Paris, with a funeral oration by Henri-Emmanuel de Roquette. James was not buried, but put in one of the side chapels. Lights were kept burning round his coffin until the French Revolution. . ◼ In 1734, the Archbishop of Paris heard evidence to support James's canonisation, but nothing came of it. During the French Revolution, James's tomb was raided. . . . #OnThisDayInHistory #ThisDayInHistory #TheYear1701 #KingJamesII #JamesIIofEngland #JamesII #HouseofStuart #Stuarts #KingofEngland #History #Royalty #EnglishMonarchy #BritishMonarchy #D16Sep

Jusqu’alors elle appartenait à l’Abbaye aux hommes, dont la fondation est dû à Guillaume le conquérant en 1063.

The intricate stonework of the Rouen cathedral- understandable why Monet painted this facade 125 years ago. Fun fact- Richard the Lionheart’s ♥️ was embalmed and buried inside the cathedral in 1199! #rouencathedral #rouencathedrale #rouen #rouentourisme #monet #gothic #normandy #normandietourisme #normandie #france #cathedral #richardthelionheart #medieval #kingofengland #gothicarchitecture

Ooh I love my Royals. Here is Charles II, also known as the “Merry Monarch,” son of the ill fated Charles I who was executed when the Commonwealth took over. After making a daring escape and at one point hiding in a tree, he returned as King after the downfall of Cromwell. He has since become one of the most recognisable monarchs, noted for his distinctive appearance and womanising tendencies, having at least twelve children by many mistresses. He was also very fond of the King Charles Spaniels, which led to the breed being named after him! The spaniels were reportedly allowed to go wherever they liked in the palace, even during important meetings During his reign there were many important historical events that occurred, including The Great Fire of London, which he and his brother attended to by joining the fire-fighters, and The Plague. Charles also brought back Christmas to England, after being removed from public celebrations by Cromwell. He also tried to introduce religious tolerance and freedoms for Catholics and Protestants, but unfortunately faced too much opposition by Parliament to enact this. Upon his final illness and death, he pleaded with his successor, his brother James, to look after his mistresses, including the infamous Nell Gwynn (”Don’t let poor Nelly starve.” . . . #illustrations #illustratorsoninstagram #illustragram #illustration #illustrator #artofvisuals #artoftheday #artist #artistsoninstagram #drawing #penandink #kingofengland #king #monarch #royal #charlesii #kingcharles #kingcharlesspaniel #spaniel #dog #doggo #art #artoninstagram
