After overwhelming German success at Mons, they continued to press the Allied forces back, eventually to the Marne. German forces eagerly advanced on the shattered forces (in what is known as the First Battle of the Marne), and came close to winning when at one point only 6,000 troops defended a flank. However, soon the Allies has proved their complete control of the Marne #worldwarhistory#worldwar1#ww1#history#germanhistory#britishhistory#frenchhistory#historynerd#battlefield1

#tbt When I visited the Pont Alexandre III bridge in Paris. You can spot me at the bottom on the bike. The Pont Alexandre III is a deck arch bridge that spans the Seine in Paris. It connects the Champs-Élysées quarter with those of the Invalides and Eiffel Tower. The bridge is widely regarded as the most ornate, extravagant bridge in the city. It is classified as a French Monument historique since 1975.

L’épiphanie est célébrée quand les rois mages, guidés par la lumière d’une étoile, arrivèrent jusqu’à Jésus, dans l’étable où il est né. L’épiphanie est célébrée depuis le quatorzième siècle. Pour l’épiphanie, on mange une pâtisserie appelée la galette des rois. Il y a une tradition qui le personne qui trouve la fève dans la galette des rois doit acheter la prochaine galette des rois.

1938 Tatra Type 87

Czechoslovakian auto manufacturing in the 1930s took its roots from the Western European school of aerodynamics. Aérodynamisme was a sign of the times. In the 1930s aerodynamics engineers in Western Europe pursued their vision of science-based automotive coachwork. They used wind-tunnel testing and engineering strategies to develop smooth and enveloped coachwork that cut through the wind. Innovative round bodies, such as that of the Tatra Type 87, set the precedent for modernized coachwork that was popular throughout the 1930s.

She was born at the Luxembourg Palace in Paris, as the second daughter of Prince Gaston of France, Duke of Orléans and his wife Marguerite of Lorraine. ————————————————————————One of five children she was not raised with her siblings but in a convent, because she was destined to become abbess of Remiremont and was styled as such. ————————————————————————Élisabeth married Louis Joseph, Duke of Guise on 15 May (1667) in the presence of the Court and the ”Princes of the Blood”. He was four years younger then her. They only had one child François Joseph, who died at the age of five. Her husband died (1671), of smallpox. ————————————————————————After the death of her husband and son, Élisabeth spent the most of her time at the royal court. There she became a fervent supporter of her cousin Louis XIV's policies, to bring Huguenots back into the Catholic fold.————————————————————————Élisabeth died on 17 March in (1696), at the Palace of Versailles. She was buried in the Great Carmel of Paris, among the nuns. The fortune that she had accumulated, was willed to her older and only surviving sibling Marguerite Louise, Grand Duchess of Tuscany. ————————————————————————#history #oldroyals #historicalroyals #élisabethmargueriteoforléans #gastondukeoforleans #margaretoflorraine #royalhouseofbourbon #frenchprincesses #frenchhistory #royalpaintings #seventeenthcentury

My beloved husband Louis-Alexandre de Bourbon, Prince de Lamballe. I married him in January, 1767. He died one year later, because of venereal disease. He was 20 years old. I pray for his soul every day. •
