👑💩🚽 The Groom of the Stool (formally styled: "Groom of the King's Close Stool") was the most intimate of an English monarch's courtiers, responsible for assisting the king in excretion and ablution (ie pooping and wiping). The physical intimacy of the role naturally led to him becoming a man in whom much confidence was placed by his royal master and with whom many royal secrets were shared as a matter of course. This secret information—while it would never have been revealed, to the discredit of his honour—in turn led to him becoming feared and respected and therefore powerful within the royal court in his own right. #RoyalPoop #JobFair . . . 📷: A Close-Stool c.1650.

We’re still a few weeks away from studying the Romans, but I just couldn’t help but share this beautiful image of the ruins of the Roman Forum. It’s amazing to see multiple levels of history in one place.
#ReturnOfTheKing In honor of the end of my leave, I wanted to share this beautifully done medieval style artwork depicting King Elessar Telcontar, Elfstone Strider, Aragorn son of Arathorn, the King of Arnor and Gondor, Heir of Isildur son of Elendil of the Faithful of Westernesse. “The hands of the King are the hands of a healer.” 🍃 (Artwork by Jay Johnstone)
Second and third sons of noblemen can sure be trouble, eh? 🏰 Great clip from a Spanish show called El Ministerio del Tiempo (The Ministry of Time) that highlights the way that the inheritance system among nobles in Medieval Europe left most land and wealth to first and maybe second sons of the landowning elites, leaving any younger sons to either join the clergy, join a monastery, or become knights, who were often just armed thugs, either in service of some lord or simply in service of themselves. Remember, weapons cost money, so the wealthy had an advantage in power over the common folk. Tales of chivalry were often more aimed at encouraging good and valiant behavior rather than reflecting actual common practice. #Chivalry #Nobility #TimeTravel #Subtitles (btw the show is on Netflix if you’re interested!)
