Philip Prospero, Prince of Asturias (1657-1661) was the son of King Philip IV of Spain and Marianna of Austria. He was heir apparent to the throne. He suffered from epilepsy and became ill frequently.
Is your line 'he suffered from epilepsy and became ill frequently' cut and pasted directly from Wikipedia ?
I know you love to get your post count up with random postings but I have to speak up in this case. I have epilepsy and it is not considered a disability!!!
And I would rather advise you not to accuse people who are very valued board members with an impressive amount of rather informative historical posts of raking up a post count with random posts. This is insulting and derogatory and certain not called for.
As to epilepsy not being a disability: in many countries it certainly is considered such.
Disabilities are however nothing to be ashamed off and should not be considered a bad label
And nobody has done any of this.
I too love reading many of Cyril's posts. They often get me doing more research into royals about whom I know very little and sometimes about those I have spent a lifetime studying or those I will be researching for my Ph.D starting next year.
I, too, enjoy reading Cyril's posts, and looking at the images that accompany them. These posts often introduce me to royals I knew nothing about, or get me thinking more about those I do know about. An old photograph can bring a long gone royal to life in a way that no amount of text can achieve. Till now I had no idea about Philip Prospero and his short, sad life. Researching him has led to me acquiring knowledge about the 17th Century Spanish RF and an interest in the circumstances that I otherwise would not have had. Keep posting please, Cyril!
And hugs to Jonathan and all other posters for whom epilepsy or similar challenges are a part of life.
