The death of Harold at the Battle of Hastings, 1066, (1944). Creator: Unknown

The death of Harold at the Battle of Hastings, 1066, (1944). The Latin reads: 'Harold Rex Interfectus Est' - King Harold is killed. English forces led by King Harold II fought the invading Normans under William I. It has been suggested that the 'arrow in the eye' account of Harold's death was deliberately invented by the Normans as an attempt to legitimise William's siezure of the English crown, by portraying Harold as having been 'struck down' by God as punishment for his breaking of his oath to William. Detail from the Bayeux Tapestry, the famous embroidery made a few years after the Norman invasion of England in 1066. From "Battlefields in Britain', by C. V. Wedgwood. [Collins, London, 1944]

Tilly in Rothenburg, 1631, (1936). Creator: Unknown

Tilly in Rothenburg, 1631, (1936). Woman pleading with Count Tilly in Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Germany. Catholic commander Johann Tserclaes, Count of Tilly (1559-1632) wanted to burn the city of Rothenburg, and condemned the city councilmen to death. The councillors, in an effort to appease him, offered him wine in a large cup. Tilly challenged anyone to drink all the wine in one go, and promised that if it was done he would spare the city. The mayor, Georg Nusch, succeeded in emptying the cup and so saved his city. The events have been commemorated annually since 1881 in the play "Der Meistertrunk" (The Master Draught). From "Bilder Deutscher Geschichte", (Pictures of German History), No.12, cigarette card album. [Cigaretten-Bilderdienst, Altona-Bahrenfeld, Hamburg, Germany, 1936]
