My parents had a beautiful cat named Matilda (Tilly) A friend had found her and her kittens in the desert abandoned. Sadly the kittens didn't make it but Tilly survied and came to live with my mom and dad. What a wonderful cat she was. She lived to the ripe old age of 19.


Henry I Of England - statue in Westminster//known as Henry Beauclerc (or Educated) the fourth son of William the Conqueror. Henry married Matilda of Scotland but continued to have a large number of mistresses, by whom he had many illegitimate children. Considered by contemporaries to be a harsh but effective ruler, Henry skilfully manipulated the barons in England and Normandy as well as his daughter and nephew who fought for his throne after his death.
