    Bravo! What a very well written magazine. I have never read anything relating to history that I could not stop reading. I loved all of the articles. Especially the one about Elizabeth of York. It was very compelling to get to know a little more about my descendant. I really got to know more about her. I look forward to the book when it is completed. I also liked the article on Melancholy. If you do not know a lot about Abraham Lincoln, please read “Lincoln’s Melancholy” How Depression Challenged a President and Fueled His Greatness by Joshua Wolf Shenk. It’s an eye opener. Thank you for a beautiful magazine and wonderful articles.

    Just finished reading the magazine and I especially enjoyed Arthur the forgotten prince , and the royals and the silver screens. The articles as good as ever especially the gory ones.
