Apri 22- Isabella I of Castile "The Catholic" was Queen of Castile and wife of Ferdinand II of Aragon. Their marriage became the basis for the political unification of Spain under their grandson, Charles I.  They are known for completing the Reconquista and for financing Christopher Columbus's 1492 voyage that led to the opening of the New World and to the establishment of Spain as the first global power.  She was born in Spain on this day in 1451.⠀ ⠀ #thisday #thisdayinhistory #hispanicgenealogy #april #abril #history #hispanichistory #hispanicheritage #genealogy #shhar #shharorganization #ancestralresearch #ancestralhistory #somosprimos #wearecousins  #newspain #nuevaespana #newworld #isabellaofcastile #thecatholic #reynacatolica #catholicmonarchs #spain #charlesi #aragon #castile #castilla #columbus #juanalaloca #catherineofaragon

When recreating a 17th century Stuart Monarch a similar height proves to be an invaluable asset  #charlesi #height #similar #danielwilliams #madametussauds #wax #17thcentury
The Mortlake Tapestries of Raphael's 'Acts of the Apostles' (c.1631-40) shown at the 'Charles I: King and Collector' exhibition at the @RoyalAcademyArts are mesmerising, especially the colourful textiles each figure is shrouded in here. . . . #tapestry #textiles #colour #figures #history #religion #memory #raphael #cartoon #biblical #bible #mortlaketapestries #mortlake #inspiration #actsoftheapostles #art #ra #royalacademyofarts #charlesi #kingcharlesicollection #kingandcollector

A short paragraph from Jerry Brotton’s book; ‘The Sale of the Late King’s Goods’ published by Pan. (Somehow I managed to time it to exactly 60 seconds!)
If you had the good fortune to visit the recent Royal Academy exhibition ‘Charles I - King and Collector’, you might enjoy this book by Jerry Brotton; ‘The Sale of the King’s Goods’ which was shortlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize in 2006. —— “A detailed and fascinating account of the creation and subsequent dispersal of the art collection of Charles I, sold off in a very complicated process after his execution (and then largely reconstituted during the Restoration period).”. (JBD1’s review on Librarything.com) —— “Jerry Brotton is Professor of Renaissance Studies at Queen Mary University of London. He is a regular broadcaster and critic as well the author of Renaissance Bazaar: From the Silk Road to Michelangelo, The Sale of the Late King's Goods: Charles I and his Art Collection (shortlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize for Non-Fiction and the Hessell-Tiltman History Prize) and the bestselling and award-winning A History of the World in Twelve Maps, which has been translated into twelve languages. He lives in London and Oxford”.
Spending today reading all things regicide ahead of my Guildhall Library talk next week. The weather is helping. A lot!  #sunshine #charlesi #regicide #guildhalllibrary
"#lindseyhouse was originally built by #inigojones for the #earloflindsey, who was General of the King's forces for #charlesi, and fell at the #battleofedgehill. A fine masterpiece of the period is still to be seen in part of the chambers."-- #bradshaws #illustratedhandbook #londonanditsenvirons  The original Inigo Jones' staircase is still here. See photos. There is also a hidden wall safe as well. This building is now a law office and a secretary showed me these things very nicely as she had 5 minutes and was happy I came by to see them.
"...we may penetrate the #shadyavenues of #graysinn, another #innofcourt, with two inns of Chancery attached (#stapleinn and #barnardsinn), which has sufficient antiquity to date back it's records to the time of of #edwardiii. It was originally the residence of #lordgray; the hall was built about #1560, and the gardens, to which it is said the great #lordbacon contributed a few trees, planted about #1600. Among its more eminent students may be mentioned #hallthechronicler, the great #lordburleigh, #sirfrancisbacon, #bradshaw, who sat as President at the trial of #charlesi, and #robertsouthey. Within #graysinngate was the shop in which #jacobtonson, the bookseller, began his publishing career. #graysinnwalks used to be a favourite promenade in the time of #charlesii, and in the days of the #tatler and #spectator." #bradshaws #illustratedhandbook #londonanditsenvirons
Details of the Pagoda Room; the seventeenth century loyalties of the family are clear throughout the house (aligning marvellously with my own Stuart sensibilities). Here, a handsome portrait of Charles I in the dressing room, and a painting of Charles II, with his siblings, as a boy (luckily I made it up to town just in time for the last day of @royalacademyarts’ spectacular Charles I: King & Collector, and revelled in the larger version on display there). Oh, and a cheeky portrait of Capability Brown, a long term lodger at Burghley... • @burghleyhouse • #burghley #burghleyhouse #stamford #lincolnshire #rutland #countryhouse #englishcountryhouse #statelyhome #architecture #elizabethan #prodigyhouse #heritage #history #baroque #stateapartments #painting #art #interiordesign #englishinteriors #furniture #marquetry #antiquities #antiques #stuart #houseofstuart #charlesi #charlesii #capabilitybrown
Another  Charles I Rose #farthing - hurrah - found yesterday on the surface of a sunny foreshore ... dates to the reign of Charles I, sometime between 1625-1649 ... I had thought that these very small denomination coins (one of the first British coins where the value of the coin was not equivalent to the metal from which it was made) were dropped in abundance on the northern shore as people fled from the fire of London in 1666... or that perhaps they were used to pay wherreymen to cross to and from the theatres on the south bank (when these moved to the north in the mid seventeenth century the wherrymens income dropped dramatically). Unfortunately, I cant find the cost of a Wherry ride, nor the purchase value of a rose Farthing - so it’s all speculation.  If you know, please add a comment! This is my third seventeenth century coin in as many weeks so I think I am getting better at spotting small metal finds. Yay! #charles1 #coin #coins #numismatic #numismatics #coincollecting #lostandfound #beachcombing #beachcombingfinds #mudlark #mudlarking #mudlarkingfinds #dirtfishing #metaldetecting #thames #riverthames #thamesriver #archeology #charlesi #urbanarcheology #foundobjects #treasure #buriedtreasure #1600s

A DJ from the Midlands is preparing to go on a nationwide tour with a twist... Daniel Williams - from Sutton Coldfield - is so fascinated by the history of King Charles the first - he's decided to dress up as the monarch and travel the UK in a bid to teach others about his story! - As featured on Midlands today program by Ben Godfrey. #charlesi #danielwilliams #dandjuk @bbcnews @bbctheoneshow
