I'm not sure, but I suppose to be Franz Josef( I really like old movie of Sissi!) grand nephew, Karl I, who assumed the throne just for 2 years. He was the last Habsburg monarch.

I only heard about this battle fairly recently (even with my interest in history!), after the Norman conquest following Hastings, they didn't talk much about the Anglo-Saxon victory at Stamford Bridge - no glory for them I suppose in beating an already exhausted army.

I thought the same!

Me, my sister and mom loves Sissi trilogy. My aunt gave me on my birthday, few years ago, a book about Sissi's life. When my sister married on church, she used a bride gown and a tiara inspired on Sissi wedding dress.

Wikipedia sais:
" is the name given to a place in Balinghem, between Guînes and Ardres, in France, near Calais." There king of England and the one from France meet " to increase the bond of friendship between the two kings following the Anglo-French treaty of 1518."

Correct Adelina, basically the two new & young kings tried to out macho each other - despite all the expense & bother, it didn't lead to better long term friendship between them or their countries!!!

By Google:

December 1st, 1918 – the National Assembly of all Romanians in
Transylvania, Banat and the Hungarian Country convened in Alba Iulia
and decreed, by unanimous vote, theunion of Transylvania with the Romanian Kingdom.

And now 1st December is Romanian's National Day

Is this correct??

In Poland we are celebrating our independent and end of the I world war on 11th Noveber.
