Nice Rearden, she was LARGER than life.  I'll just have to give you automatic  Star teefy stars.  Your posts are always fascinating (like the Charlottenburg Mausoleum, I visited it long enough ago that I forgot until your post.  And on Kaiser Palaces, what about Potsdam?)

 Blush  Hug

It was my idea to continue with Postdam, but I don't have enough time to do everything  Tongue

I have to continue the thread of the habsburgs too. And I would like to start a new one for the Bourbons.

I love the two Catherines, the queen of France and the Empress and Autocrat of All the Russias

L'Ancien Régime is a the period in French History which encompassed the 15th through 18th centuries.  Some of the players, Valois and Bourbon, are listed here.  It was a time of religious intolerance (the Spanish Inquisition, St. Ignatius Loyola, the edit of Nantes, England breaking away from the Roman church, Protestantism in northern Europe).  This affected the rulers and their descendants.  Although the revolution took place in France, repercussions were felt throughout Europe, England taking the hit early with the execution of Charles I (whose daughter Henriette was wife number 1 to Phillipe, Louis XIV brother).

Queen Henrietta Marie (Duchess of Orléans, sister to Louis XIII) was married to the Stuart King of England, Charles I (who was beheaded)
