У него было 6 жён, трое его детей были королями (или королевами?😂), он был главой своей собственной церкви, а ещё у него был красивый замок - тот, который на фото.

Сегодня в рубрике 👉 #sernaut_историявлицах самый колоритный персонаж английской истории король Генрих VIII.
.
✅Просвещенный король.
Начинал как просвещенный король и друг гуманистов. Был высокообразован, играл на музыкальных инструментах, писал поэмы. Подавал большие надежды. Но потом всех гуманистов разогнал, а своего друга и министра Томаса Мора (автора знаменитой "Утопии") казнил.
✅Личная жизнь.
Это самое интересное. Всем этим принцам Вильямам, да принцессам Дианам далеко до нашего Гарри. У Генриха было 6 жён. Двух из них он казнил. С двумя развёлся, причём первая из них - Екатерина Арагонская, тоже, поговаривают, умерла не своей смертью. Но никто уже ничего не докажет. 😊Одна жена умерла родами. И только последняя из них - Кэтрин Парр пережила Генри. Хотя, и она была на волосок от казни.
✅Овцы жрут людей.
При Генрихе Виссарионовиче, то есть Генрихе Генриховиче, велась так называемая политика огораживания. Дворяне сгоняли крестьян с их земли, а землю огораживали под пастбища для овец. Овечью шерсть продавали на экспорт. Крестьяне становились бродягами и их за это вешали. Томас Мор говорил "Овцы пожирают людей". Но, надо признать, на этом Англия и сделала себе бабки или первоначальный капитал, чтобы провести индустриализацию, снарядить корабли и грабить потом колонии.
✅Сам себе Папа Римский.
Начинал как католик. Но когда Папа Римский отказался развести его с первой женой, он объявил себя главой церкви Англии. Монастыри позакрывали, ̶п̶р̶е̶в̶р̶а̶т̶и̶л̶и̶ ̶в̶ ̶н̶о̶ч̶н̶ы̶е̶ ̶к̶л̶у̶б̶ы̶, земли церкви конфисковали. С тех пор в Англии своя религия - англиканская.
✅Дети.
👑Эдуард VI. Правил недолго. Описан у Марка Твена в книге "Принц и нищий". Это его главное достижение.😊
👑Мэри по кличке Кровавая. Прозвали так за то, что мочила протестантов.
👑Елизавета l. Всем смотреть фильм "Золотой век" с Кейт Бланшет. При ней был расцвет могущества Англии.

P.S. А на фотографии дворец Хэмптон Корт - прекрасный образец поздней готики и бывшая резиденция Генри VIII.

"Human Fly" George Willig scales the exterior of the World Trade Center's South Tower in 1977. Completing the climb in 3.5 hours, he was arrested at the top after signing several autographs, and was fined $1.10 by the city - a penny for each floor he passed.

Pirates were often sailors that turned to piracy following long abusive careers as naval officers or merchant seamen. Aboard ships sponsored by merchant companies, there was often a captain in place with unlimited and unchecked power who was granted the right to punish in especially harsh manners, often leading to dissatisfaction and mutiny amongst the crew.⠀

Fleet Ops

USS Delaware (BB-28) in 1913 on exercises with one of the Floridas (middle) and one of the Wyomings (rear). Navsource states the middle battleship is probably USS Utah (BB-31), and based on her foremast searchlights I would agree. The furthest is likely Arkansas (BB-33). Arkansas had been in commission only since September 1912, and Utah only joined the fleet that same year. Delaware was about two years into her service life; each of the brand-new Dreadnoughts were powerful steps for the USN, which had been behind in battleship development until the onset of the Dreadnought era.

It's been raining all week here in sunny Queensland. Why not enjoy some medieval games with your favourite people? .

The prostitute who led the strongest pirate fleet in History
◾◾◾◾◾◾◾
Ching Shih was born in China in 1775. She worked as a prostitute until 1801 when she married a notorious pirate called Cheng I, also adopting his son Cheung Po. Combining her gift for intrigues and his reputation, Ching Shih and Cheng I started assembling what soon became the strongest pirate force in History, known as the Red Flag Fleet.
.
At its peak, it included over 300 ships manned by 40,000 to 70,000 pirates and for years it couldn’t be defeated neither by the Qing Imperial fleet nor European bounty hunters. When Cheng I died in 1807, Ching Shih quickly maneuvered and managed to gain full leadership over the fleet by forming an alliance with her adopted son.
.
In 1810, the Red Flag Fleet finally suffered a series of defeats and she finally accepted the amnesty offered by the Qing Imperial government to all pirates who agreed to surrender. Together with most of her men, Ching Shih and Cheung Po walked free and were able to keep the loot. They asked the government to dissolve their mother and son relationship and allow them to marry, which was granted. Cheung Po died in 1822 and Ching Shih in 1844.

From my collection. Original 8x 10 photo. Rare, never published and perhaps final photo ever taken of Yankees immortal icon Lou Gehrig. I have never seen another from this late in his life.
I believe this photo was taken in early 1941 when ALS had done considerable damage to Gehrig. He died in June 1941 at the far, far too young age of 38. He only lived 2 years after his diagnosis. He had voluntarily retired from baseball in May 1939 after playing in 2,130 consecutive games and was honored at Yankee Stadium that July 4th, making a very famous farewell speech that brought the filled stadium to tears.
It is a very unusual photo, that is New York Yankee great and HOF Phil Rizzuto with him, who did not play for the Yankees until 1941. A very neat piece of history, though sad when one knows it may the last pic ever taken of a beloved man and baseball hero who is still revered and remembered fondly today. RIP Lou.

El Nilo, el río más largo del mundo 🇪🇬
.
.
Fue en el curso del Nilo donde Moisés de bebé fue puesto dentro de una canasta y dejado a la deriva para ser encontrado por la hija del faraón. Es el río más grande de África, pasa por 9 países y es una de las fuentes más importantes de transporte y desarollo de Egipto! Super lindo e impresionante!

Today I got to visit and tour two replicas of the ships that Christopher Columbus sailed to North America in the 1400's, the Niña and the Pinta.
