Hello, so. I realize I didn't post anything yesterday. With very good reason I did nothing, I also wasn't able to blog via, my phone. So anyways, today I didn't get as much done as I would have liked, due to illness. However I just did a little more research on the kings and queens that have ruled Britain. It started with King Offa (757-796 pictured below), The throne was then handed down to his son, Ecgfrith reigns for less than 6 months.
The throne was then empty for 6 years before King Egbert ruled in 802. This seems to be the first and last time the throne is empty for this long.
Another thing I noticed within the date of all the kings and queens, there really wasn't many that had ruled longer than 30 years. I also thought it was very interesting that the first Queen of Britain didn't happen till 1553, Queen Mary, she only ruled for 5 years and then the throne was ruled by Elizabeth 1st, One of the most famous rulers of Britain, she ruled for a hefty 45 years
So I am now hoping to look into Kings and Queens from Europe and hopefully will start to get a better idea about which historical characters I want to have in my deck of cards. So I think I will more than likely have a few different designs of playing cards. But this will be the first hopefully.
I am now on my last few days with being home, So I am now making the rounds of making sure I see everyone before I leave to go back to Aberdeen. So I have to admit I am unsure if I will be able to post tomorrow, let alone do any more research. So don't say I didn't warn you!
