The Tudors / Henry VIII's 500th anniversary - free podcasts
« on: August 12, 2009, 06:32:12 PM »
Found some fabulous free podcasts of lectures that were given this year at the British Library and thought others might like to listen.  Listening to Alison Weir on Anne Boleyn right now, but there are others by David Starkey, Tudor music experts, etc.  Just go to the main page of the British Library.  They are listed under the heading "Henry VIII: Man and Monarch".  Enjoy!

The Tudors / Need help - Anne Boleyn in France
« on: August 06, 2009, 01:17:24 PM »
I'm leaving for a trip to France on 24 August.  I would like to visit places that Anne Boleyn might have been at while she served in the French court.  Geeky as I am, I'm not quite sure which palaces or chateaus those would be.  Can anyone tell me?  Thanks!!

The Wittlesbachs / The Wittelsbach Diamond

Did you see this sold today at a Christie's auction for 16,393,250 ($24,262,008).  It is "a rare 35.6 carat 17th century grey-blue diamond. The diamond was part of the dowry of the Infanta Mararita Teresa upon her engagement to Leopold I of Austria, given by her father King Philip IV of Spain"

Where has it been, historically speaking?  Anyone know?
