But firstly: a couple of my buddies on Facebook have started a campaign to raise money to protect and preserve Garth Celyn in Abergwyngregyn, North Wales - the home of the last Welsh Princes of Wales in the thirteenth century. If you'd like to make a donation, click here. And here's a link to the Facebook page (which I think you can access even if you're not a member of Facebook).
And secondly, a couple of new blogs to tell you about: the genealogist and historian Brad Verity, whom some of you will already know from soc.genealogy.medieval and his articles for the Foundation for Medieval Genealogy, not to mention his brilliantly informative and perceptive comments on this blog lately, has set up his own blog called Royal Descent. Yay! Lots of well-researched and fascinating posts to look forward to. And Edward II's brother-in-law Louis X of France (1289-1316) has been reborn online and has his own blog, the excellently-subtitled General Disgruntlings Of An Agitated Monarch. Edward admits to a sneaking fondness for Louis, whom he knighted in June 1313 and who never invaded his duchy of Gascony and declared war on him like certain other brothers-in-law Edward could mention, and is delighted to welcome him to blogland.
