I just left Acre and am heading home to England. Or at least I thought I was!

I'm in two locations:
England 1140 - Matilda is trying to regain the throne that her father intended her to have from her cousin Stephen.
Tudor England, 1532 - ah the tribulations of Henry VIII and Anne Bolyen trying to get married.

LOL! Well, after reading The Rose Garden over the weekend, I know why Susanna was there and what she finally decided upon. Love it!

Still in Constantinople, Justinian has just told Theodora he wants to change the law so he can marry her, an ex-actress/whore, which is illegal at the moment.

This morning I went to the Cathedral. They are restoring her for years now and from time to time they let you see how it's going. Well, I'm in love with this beauty:
Image These are Alfonso X, Fadrique, Fernando and Enrique, (I think) (it only says "the 4 crowned princes"), sons of Fernando III of Castilla, son of Queen Berenguela, daughter of Alfonso VIII and Eleanor, in short these are Henry II's grand-grand-grandsons (does this word exist? lol).
I love the way they are chatting between themselves. And how their hands hold the cloths in a casual way like playing with the straps. Number 3 is obviously the youngest, so beautiful I thought at first it was a woman. A moment frozen in time around 1245...

They're lovely emr, we'd call them Henry's great-great-grandsons, although I like your name for them as well! The colours are beautiful.

Oooh thanks :D I knew so many grands did not sound right :o
They are trying to recover some of the wall decorations as a sample and it all goes in those colors. It must have been a colorful place some 700 years ago. But now 95% of that is lost.
