« on: January 01, 2015, 03:16:17 PM »
Is it true that the Tsars Godfathered in Baptism the seventh male baby to protect him turning into a werewolf? And that this tradition began with Catherine the Great?
I live in Argentina, in my country Presidents Godfather a seventh child and it is said that the first family that requested it in 1907, was a Russian family that were afraid of the werewolf legend. I haven' t found historical sources of the existence of that legend so I'd need your help. Thank you.

The Tudors / Anne Boleyn charitable works
« on: February 04, 2006, 08:11:03 AM »
She began them in 1532 when she had sent money and medicines for the relief of the mother of Richard Lyst, a lay brother in the convent of the Observant Friars at Greenwich. He had been against her but after that he became a staunch supporter.
Also Anne used to give alms weekly to the poor and clothes sewn by herself and her ladies.
She provided for widows and poor householders, when visiting a town or village she sent her almoner ahead to find out from the parish authorities if there were any needy families in the district. A list was sent to Anne and she made grants of money.
The Queen aided poor scholars providing money for their education maintaining several at the University of Cambridge.
After her death there was found amongst her papers a list of grants for the relief of poor artisans.
