    How comes most old egyptian names are spelled wrong in english?

In reality her name was spoken like "Naftata". Anotehr example is the name Thutmose. It was spoken Tahutmes. Thats how we call them and it comes...

Yet the guiding lights of that Republic, Jan and Cornelius De...

    Born in the wrong century

    Good morning, all. I come from a world in which my historical interests are rather eclectic, from the history of the Spanish Conquest, to the Crusades, to the Conquest of England.

    Beware - some sources get dates and ages wrong?

    For example, I just checked and saw that King Edward V of England was born on November 2, 1470, and his brother Richard of Shrewsbury, Duke of York and Norfolk, was born on August 17, 1473. They were seen in the Tower less and less until they disappeared from public sight at the end of...
