I have read a children's book about the Chinese Kitchen god. In it,he was wearing a pigtail/queue even though his existence in stories had predated the Qing dynasty.

I'm pretty sure the Grinch is not an actual historical figure.

Ha ha.

In one DK Eyewitness ancient Egypt books there is a pretty big illustration of an Egyptian soldier holding a khopesh backward.

To my abhorrence, II Naomasa was identified as Li Naomasa.

I gave the book away. That sort of nonsense will not be tolerated in my house.
Blasphemy!!!!!

If you think that when I was in elementary school in Italy I sang a Communist Partisan song [Bella Ciao] ...

My generation grew up with the persuasion that Partisans liberated Italy. Americans? Sorry? Americans?

Bella Ciao is a good song. First time I heard it was in Spanish.

In a general way I think that in the 20th century the left wing had always better songs than the right wing, at least in the Latin countries.

For instance “Hasta siempre, comandante” by Carlos Puebla is a wonderful music, and I am not a fan of Che. And in Portugal the communist “Zeca Afonso” was one of the best song composers of his time.
