Did you know Henry VIII never called Anne of Cleves a “Flanders Mare”? It’s true. There is actually no contemporary evidence of Henry calling her that. I think this is one of the most “known” Tudor misquotes; along with Catherine Howard being the, “rose without a thorn,” another untrue saying. 
Gilbert Burnet, Bishop of Salisbury, wrote in his 1679 book that Henry “swore they had brought over a Flanders mare to him”, but that is him saying that Henry VIII uttered those words and it is not backed up by evidence. Anne was not from Flanders anyway, something that Henry VIII was well aware of. 
Also contrary to legend, there is no evidence that Anne wore a huge blonde wig and that she was actually dark-haired, or that she was dark-skinned or “swarthy”. Henry might have found Anne of Cleves unattractive, but this might have been more due to first impressions, rather than him finding her psychically ugly. 
It’s also been a bit confusing how Henry could have take an instant dislike to his bride to be when he first encountered her at Rochester on New Year’s Day 1540, and adamantly declared “I like her not.” I really think this is due to their first meeting, and after that, Henry couldn’t stand her so he said she was too ugly-just so he could get a divorce. This backfire though, rumors started to spread and people said that because of her looks he couldn’t consummate the marriage. This made Henry, and England, look weak. This lead to Henry needing to find a younger wife to make him look strong again (enter the Duke of Norfolk and Catherine Howard.) One historian described Henry and Anne of Cleve’s first meeting perfectly: “...Henry was humiliated and embarrassed by their first meeting, which had been a complete disaster. Always the romantic, Henry had decided to surprise Anne by disguising himself in the great chivalric tradition and intercepting her on her way to London. According to this tradition, the would-be bride would see through the disguise, fall in love at first sight and swoon into her beloved’s arms, it would be the perfect first date and they would both live happily ever after.” Continued in comments ♡

Ignacy Skorupka (31 July 1893 – 14 August 1920) was a Polish priest, chaplain of the Polish Army. He died during the battle of Warsaw. He became one of the most famous casualties of the battle. Ignacy Jan Skorupka was born on 31 July 1893 in Warsaw. He studied at the seminary in St. Petersburg. In 1916 he took his Holy Orders, and in 1918 he was briefly a parish priest in the Russian Empire. In the chaotic times of the first stages of the Polish–Soviet War in 1918, he became one of the Polish regional leaders in the Kresy borderlands. Since the fall of 1918 he practiced his religious profession in Łódź, and from the fall of 1919, in the Polish capital of Warsaw. He has given several sermons in the St. John's Archcathedral. In early July 1920 he volunteered as a military chaplain of the Polish Army, and was attached to the 236 Infantry Regiment of the Volunteer Army (later, part of the 36th Infantry Regiment). On the evening of 14 August he was killed at the battle of Ossów during Polish counter-attack, part of the larger battle of Warsaw. Two different accounts of his death have surfaced. One suggest he was in the midst of Anointing of the Sick for a fatally wounded soldier when he, a noncombatant, was hit by an accidental bullet. Another, popularized by a Polish military dispatch from 16 August stated that chaplain Skorupka died while encouraging soldiers to advance, leading a charge in the front lines, with a cross in his hands. A day later his body was transported to a garrison church in Warsaw, and shortly, he was given a state funeral at the prestigious Powązki Cemetery, attended by many government and military authorities; general Józef Haller presented him with a posthumous Silver Cross of the Virtuti Militari. His death became a political ploy, used by the opponents of Polish military commander and leader Józef Piłsudski, architect of the Polish strategy that led to the victory at Warsaw. His opponents labelled the battle

His opponents labelled the battle "miracle of Vistula", and attributed the Polish victory to a number of causes, up to and including divine intervention, and Skorupka's martyr-like death became part of their attempt to minimize Piłsudski's fame.

Abraham Lincoln was a compulsive joker and story teller – although the stern marble figure of his memorial in Washington DC (pictured) would suggest otherwise. When Washington DC socialite Kate Chase asked Lincoln why he had been “standing next to a wall up in an alley”, he replied: “Well, to tell the truth, Miss Chase, I went up that alley to shake hands with a fellow I used to know who stood up for me at my wedding…” You can read more of Lincoln’s jokes on our website (link in bio) (Photo by Ivan Dmitri/Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images) #BBCHistoryMagazine #HistoryExtra #NationalTellAJokeDay #AbrahamLincolnMemorial #DidYouKnow #JokeOfTheDay #AbrahamLincoln #Lincoln #WashingtonDC #USA #joke #funny #president #joker #history #historybuff #historynerd #historylesson #historygeek #historylover #historyinpictures #historymatters #historygram #historyfacts #historyiscool #historical #historyteacher

Ontem conhecemos a Igreja de San Lorenzo.. lugar maravilhoso! Milão tem muito mais coisas pra se ver, numa cidade praticamente do tamanho de Campinas, é assustador pensar a história e quantidade de monumentos que tem aqui.. essa igreja que se modificou ao longo dos anos (incêndios e guerras) e é uma das edificações mais antigas milanesas.. em frente à ela estão as colunas romanas do sec.III ao lado uma das portas medievais as quais faziam parte da muralha que protegia Milão, na Idade Media sec XII. Andar pela história é o que mais gosto em viagens.. Somos eternos aprendizes!!❤️👏🏼👏🏼 Pra quem não sabe SAN Lorenzo foi GRELHADO vivo, é um Mártir, porque não queria dar pra Cesar o dinheiro que era destinado a viúvas e carentes.. #architecure #sanlorenzo #milano #historyfacts

Sightseeing in Edam, The Netherlands. Edam is famous for its cheese, but the town itself is absolutely stunning and definitely worth the visit. Its located about 22 kilometers outside of Amsterdam. This picture was taken in the old town centre. Edam has around 7000 inhabitants. You don’t have to go on a tour, because you can easily hop on the bus to Edam from Amsterdam Central Station and explore the town yourself. D’halve maen means half moon. Halve Maen was a Dutch East India Company vlieboot (similar to a carrack) which sailed into what is now New York Harbor in September 1609. The ship itself was not built in Edam. #edam #edamcheese #thenetherlands🇳🇱 #sightseeing #dutchtourism #dutchtourist #granturismo #visitthenetherlands #visitholland #architecture #17thcentury #touristattraction #dutchhistory #stuffdutchpeoplelike #dutchcountryside #paysbas #dutcharchitecture #neverstopexploring #neverstoptraveling #livetoexplore #igtravel #traveltheworld #instatravel #traditionaldutch #discoverthenetherlands #edamcenter #comingtoamerica #newamsterdam #historyfacts #comingtonewyork @dernederlanden

Host island was named after the British Naval officer Sir William Hoste who commanded the British navy in what is considered today as the last sailing ship battle. In 1811 Nelson's young protégé Hoste fought in a battle of Vis against the Napoleon's superior fleet - and won. It was part of a larger campaign that saw Dubrovnik Republic returned to the Austro - Hungarian Empire - but now part of the Kingdom of Dalmatia. ⛵⚓ #historyfacts #host #stk #nikond3400 #nikonphotography #britishnavalhistory #britishnavy #nofilter #nofilterneeded #adriatic #dalmatia #croatiafulloflife #croatia #summer2018 #dubrovnik #ragusa #historygram #instahistory #napoleon

Napoleon Bonaparte, arguably one of history’s greatest military leaders, was born in Corsica #OnThisDay in 1769. Although his parents were members of minor Corsican nobility, the family was not affluent; Napoleon was educated at French military academies, which he attended on scholarships, and was poor compared to his classmates. Because his first language was Italian, not French, he was reportedly teased for sounding like a “peasant”. Today he is remembered for, among other things, being emperor of France during the Napoleonic Wars (1803–15), and his defeat at the battle of Waterloo on 18 June 1815.

Mehrangarh, known for its beautiful architecture, formidable wall, and cultural heritage, is one of the most magnificent forts in Rajasthan, India. .
There is no exaggeration in Rudyard Kipling describing the fort as “A Palace that might have been built by Titans and colored by the morning sun”.

I’m standing outside as dusk falls in the Siskiyou mountains after watching the smoke grow thicker and thicker as afternoon turned to dusk and my mind goes back to the pea soupers of London past. To the creeping yellow smog that drove John Watson indoors as he write out The Sign of the Four. An oppressive mood upon our shoulders that Dickens immortalized which his word, “...gone into mourning, one would imagine, for the death of the sun.” Well the sun has gone here, taking with it its weak light that had already worked to confused the owls to begin early their hunt and the swallows their dance.
1952 marked the greatest of London’s pea soupers. That year the still air of December brought the Thames to rise up in its mist and murk and the smoke of the chimneys to settle down on a city which had been painting its walls with smoke since the settling of the Roman. 4,000 people had died on the first day. By the time the new year came more than ten thousands deaths had fallen on the city. The undertakers ran out of coffins then. And yet it took another four years for laws to be passed to clean the city and save its people from King Fog.
So I stand here and know that that red moon is not from any London Particular. This is bigger.

When quarantined passengers arrived here from the 1910s - 1960s, they were processed through the shower block. Everyone was ordered to remove their clothes and take a shower in these mint green cubicles, where the liquid was 90% water and 10% carbolic acid. This shower system was successful in removing fleas and lice, however it gave the quarantined interns chemical burns - their skin was bright red and peeling for days afterwards! The first class shower block still stands today and is considered one of the most haunted buildings on site. 💦👻 #qstation #historymeetstheharbour

Мемориальный комплекс императору Александру 2 заложил его сын - император Александр 3 -1893 года. Памятник простоял до лета 1918 года, а затем был разрушен как символ свергнутой власти.

Fun fact: It is known that ancient Egyptians used various cosmetics, while the signature bold "eyeliner" served many ritualistic, as well as practical purposes apart from beautification. It was used to repel flies and protect the eyes from infections, while it was also believed that it offered protection against the evil. Eyes without makeup were thought to be vulnerable to the "Evil Eye". . #cairo #summerinegypt #egypt #cairoegypt #giza #egyptian #pharaoh #egyptology #historyfacts #instaegypt #instatravel #wanderlusting #instatraveling #mytravelgram #instapassport #traveler #worldwander #traveltheworld #traveltheglobe #travelgram #travelphotograph #instago #igtravel #igvacation #beautifuldestinations

Viking battle axes are sometimes depicted as massive weapons used to destroy those it comes in contact with, when in reality they were the opposite. Most battle axes were light and well balanced. Even though they weren't as mighty as depicted in today's images of vikings does not mean they lacked in damage they caused.

15 августа 1799 года в ходе Итальянского похода Александра Васильевича Суворова союзные русско - австрийские войска нанесли поражение французской армии Б. К. Жубера при г. Нови.
В сражении при Нови Александр Васильевич Суворов искусно применил ложную демонстрацию главного удара и преднамеренный отход своих войск. Потери французов - 13 тысяч человек, из них 4,5 тысяч пленных.

The magnificent Cologne Cathedral (dedicated to St. Peter), which began construction in 1248 is finally completed today in 1880, although restoration work will take place after WWII.  It is the tallest twin-spired church and is a popular landmark for tourists.  #abouthistory #cathedral -The Prince

Did you know that Queen Elizabeth I pioneered the modern day lipliner? 💋💄 Elizabeth was never seen without a slick of lipstick (I mean just look at that red lip! 🙌) believing it to have healing powers, in addition to looking great. Her recipe for lip liner consisted of plaster of paris and red dye (her preferred red dye being the toxic, Vermillion). It’s said that Elizabeth loved her lipstick SO MUCH that when she died, she had an inch thick layer of lipstick on. Now that is commitment to a statement lip 👏👄👏 #History #historynerd #historyfacts #historylesson #lipstick #makeup #makeupaddiction #elizabethI #tudorstyle #tudor

On this day in 1944, US Reveals It Will Not Bomb Nazi Death Camps.

In a letter written to Leon Kubowitzki, head of the Rescue Department of the World Jewish Congress, US Assistant Secretary of War John J. McCloy states that the War Department would not order the bombing of Nazi Death Camps because they did not see it as a priority for US military resources.
