Visit the Two Nerdy History Girls for a video of the Prince Regent [George IV], courtesy of Horrible Histories [and while there subscribe to their blog – for an almost daily historical treasure fix.]
And this, only because it is on EVERY Austen-related site out there ~ “Jane Austen’s Fight Club” – [and thanks to Janeite Bonnie for the reminder to put it on this blog!]
Thanks for the shout-out for the Two Nerdy History girls, Deb! Those Horrible Histories videos are hilarious — yet despite all the silliness, they also manage to pack in a great deal of history. :)
Yes, Susan – they are funny! – I have a number of the Horrible histories books, but didn’t realize they were online making videos! – thanks for the this daily chuckle -though George is not nearly as large as he should be, but funny nonetheless!
Didn’t the link come from me when I sent you the link to their chocolate story?
Hi Marti – I get the Two Nerdy History Girls updates as well, so saw that and posted about it – I had mentioned you as alerting me to their chocolate post here: https://janeausteninvermont.wordpress.com/2010/06/13/web-round-up-all-things-austen-2/
Again, always appreciate you letting me know of anything you hear about!
