REINO DE ETRURIA (1801-1807)
Fue un estado satélite que existió bajo la imposición del emperador francés Napoleón Bonaparte, sucesor del antiguo Gran Ducado de Toscana. Tomó el nombre de Etruria por el antiguo nombre romano que designaba al país.
En 1801 Napoleón coloca en el trono a Luis de Borbon-Parma, quien reinaría hasta su muerte en 1803. Luis II de Etruria reinaría bajo regencia de su madre hasta 1807, ya que Napoleón disolvería la monarquía ese año cuando la regente María Luisa alojó a rivales del emperador.

~~~ JFK (November 22, 1963) ~~~
Throughout the American history, four presidents were killed during their term of service. The last one among them was John Fitzgerald Kennedy, while riding in a presidential motorcade through Dealey Plaza, Dallas, Texas, USA 🇺🇸, on this day, November 22, 1963. A fatal shot from a nearby building was fired by the former U.S. Marine Lee Harvey Oswald - who was never tried since he was killed in jail two days later. The investigation concluded that Oswald had acted completely alone. However, a large part of the public still believes that there was a much wider conspiracy that led to the assassination.
JFK was the second youngest elected US president, the first and only Roman Catholic in the White House and the best-rated post-WWII American chief of state.

"Do you still remember the songs I also sing them". Leah Jurgrau wrote these words to her 8-year-old daughter Ruth in her last letter from Westerbork on November 22, 1942. Leah was deported from Westerbork to her death in Sobibor in 1943. In July 1943 her husband Dov was deported to Auschwitz, where he was murdered in December. Ruth survived the Holocaust in hiding. At least 15 people were involved in Ruth's rescue and the attempt to save her parents.
Most of Ruth's rescuers have been recognized as Righteous Among the Nations. In 1947 Ruth immigrated to Eretz Israel. Click the link in our bio to read the full story and see the letters Ruth received from her parents.

Let's talk time today!
We're attempting to do something which was last done 2,000 years ago.
We're going build a broch. If you don't know what a broch is, then check out this lovely image by @histenvscot of Clickimin Broch in Shetland. Essentially, brochs are Iron-Age tower-houses, found only in Scotland.
Now it takes about 8 years to construct a broch - that's if we're to use totally traditional methods tools.
We're hoping to be a little quicker - so hopefully 3 years, but maybe up to 5 years.
That's about 1,825 days
So around 43,800 hours
Close to 2,628,000 minutes
Or about 157,680,000 seconds
But today, we're asking 👉 YOU 👈 for just SIXTY SECONDS of your time - and to sign up as a 'Friend' of Caithness Broch Project.
We need to demonstrate to funders that there is tangible support from our project, and that people want this to happen.
Signing up is totally free, there are no obligations - and you get a lovely free newsletter sent to you regularly to keep you informed of our progress.
By signing up, you'll be ensuring that our project becomes stronger and making our dream a reality.
Time to make it happen - just hit the link on our bio and sign today!

Pantheon - Piccolo tempio dedicato a tutte le divinità romane eretto da Agrippa ( console dell’imperatore Augusto).
La forma attuale è dovuta ad Adriano che lo ricostruì dopo due incendi.
Molte leggende ruotano attorno al tempio tra cui quella dell’oculus.
Il foro ( dal diametro di 9 metri)al centro della cupola, infatti, sarebbe stato costruito dal Diavolo in fuga dal tempio di Dio.
La cupola ha il diametro che corrisponde esattamente all’altezza da terra del tempio e prolungando la curvatura si otterrebbe una sfera perfetta.
Il tempio coinvolge la concezione secondo cui tali costruzioni si possano godere solo all’esterno, infatti se si entra a mezzogiorno si notano giochi di luce notevoli.
Attualmente è la dimora dei Re d’Italia Vittorio Emanuele II, Re Umberto I e la regina Margherita di Savoia.

I finished reading this fascinating book - The Hare with Amber Eyes by Edward de Waal - this week. The book wasn’t at all what I had been expecting. I knew that there would be research into the details of one familys ancestral journey through Europe, but I had no idea that the family in question was one of the richest in Europe and in telling the tale I would experience the art world of late 1800’s Paris, the life of a wealthy Banker’s family in WWI Vienna, and the the fate of said family as they became refugees during WWII, as well as life in Japan during it’s struggle to normalize after the war. The ‘Hare’ mentioned in the title, part of a collection of Japanese Netsuke, was but a bit player in the movement of this family saga across three centuries.
I would hardly recommend this book to the casual reader, but as a history and family tesearch fan I was enthralled. #edmunddewaal #theharewithambereyes #book #books #mybooklist #onmyshelf #mybookshelf #wwi #wwii #familyhistory #familyresearch #ancestry #judaica #jewishhistory #paris #vienna #history #familysaga #ilovebooks #booksiveread
