Gemstone brooch of Catherine Howard. Lovestruck with his very young bride, Henry VIII spent more money on jewels and gifts for her than on any of his other four wives. The French ambassador wrote: "the King is so amorous of her that he cannot treat her [Catherine] well enough, and caresses her more than he did the others." In return, Catherine was caring and affectionate to her much older husband. Initially, Henry refused to believe that Catherine was guilty of any indiscretions. by georgina

..“As his lips sought hers, he was momentarily lost in the taste of her sweet mouth; the sensations that coursed through his veins as her tongue skimmed over and around his, he couldn't explain.  With such intensity, her hands fisted firmly in his dark curly hair while her green eyes bored deep into his wandering soul. On pressing his body hard into hers, he softly whispered, "Megan, you are more than everything to me. You are everything!" by Gudrun Heike

A history lesson for Trump: Trump says he has the "absolute righ4t" to pardon himself. The last English monarch who tried to govern "absolutely" was King Charles I. He believe in his divine right to rule, dissolving Parliament with it suite him. He was put on trial for treason in 1649 and refused to enter a plea. He was found guilty and executed, enshrining forever the principle that no one, not even a king, is above the law. by maryann maltby

Amantine Lucile Aurore Dupin, best known by her pseudonym George Sand, was a remarkable woman - a prodigious novelist, dramatist and campaigner for all manner of political reform. A rebellious, cross-dressing, cigar-smoking, scandalously-acting woman writer who lived at a time that was certainly much more of a man's world than today. Chopin was only one of many famous men in her life. After the relationship fell apart, in 1847, he scarcely composed again, before his death two years later. by proteamundi
