Itís kinda funny that, according to the novel, heís supposed to be 25 years old  Tongue

But there will only ever be David Bamberís Mr Collins to me (although I did kinda enjoy Lost in Austen).  Smiley

David Bamber was great, both ladies AND gentlemen will run at his Mr. Collins  Wink

Just as for me Colin Firth will always be THE Mr Darcy.

Fun fact the fountain scene in Lost in Austen was a copy of the lake swim scene of Mr Darcy in P&P 1995. There is no such scene in the book.
Watching that scene is some sort of Prozac cum Ecstacy for me. Works everytime and is better for your liver and kidneys. (not to mention entirely perscription free and quite legal)

Exactly Principessa  Star and Harley

Matthew McFadyen was a decent Mr. Darcy in the movie, but I haaaaaaaated Keira Knightley in that role and I also hated that they gave her half of Mr. Bennett’s one liners.

I wonder if their Russians cousins did something similar, would it have saved them the following year

People don't enjoy going hungry. They get upset and start revolutions (France, Russia) or fight for their independence (Ireland).

There were so many factors in Russia, especially the staggering number of  fatalities incurred by Russia (more than any other nation)  in WW1, that contributed to the revolution. Alexander Solzhenitsyn's "August 1914" is a masterpiece on that tragedy which Russia entered when it was woefully ill-prepared to do so, to honour an alliance. The uncertain outcome of WW1 played a pivotal role in determining the fate of the Romanovs despite their enthroned relatives across Europe and because of it. It is said that Queen Victoria as "grandmother of Europe" thought the alliances would lead to less conflict. Simmering resentments between the royal relatives viz. Wilhelm II against Nicolas II, instead paved the way to the calculated, pre-meditated butchery of the Romanovs to ensure that no Romanovs were left to mount a challenge.  

This reminds me so much of the the conflict in Sril Lanka. There were terrible reports of the capture and execution of a child of the/a leader of the Tamil Tigers. The child was captured, fed, then lined up in front of a firing squad and executed. The explanation was that he might grow up to avenge his father's death. The child's bullet-riddled body was found but culpability was denied by the likely suspects.

There was a book written on the "Wisdom of Crowds". A companion book on "The Depravity of Mobs" should be written: individual culpability superseded by group righteousness.

Indeed. I love your grasp (and many folks here) of history. The international culture of the board is incredible.

So I didnt see a separate thread on Margaret and her children, I'm going to put it here. For a very slightly built fellow, Snowden certainly brought some beef to the bloodline https://www.dailymail.co....Wicks-online-workout.html

Daniel looks slender to me too. Though one has to be a slave to it to be Arthur's level of built.

Did Daniel Chatto's father, Arthur's paternal grandfather, have a well-developed muscular upper build?

Considering his brother Samuel is also slender, I think it's just Arthur's workout that made him very beefy.
