Elisabeth von Hesse Darmstadt mit ihrem Vater Ernst Ludwig. Ernie and Ella had a strong bond since she was an infant and she adored him much more then her distant mother Victoria Melita. She once even told her father "Mama says she loves me, but you do love me,". Sadly Ella would die at 8 which left her father heart broken and he gave her a grand funeral with white instead of black colours. "My little Elisabeth, was the sunshine of my life." He would write later on.
Happy Fathers Day to all the amazing fathers and father figures out there
Due to her limited memory of her and her mother's legacy Elizabeth I never publicly spoke about her mother Anne Boleyn. However after her death a bravely locket was discovered that contained portraits of her and her mother together. Absolutely heartbreaking.
Eleanor Roosevelt on her wedding day in 1905. It's rare to she her or FDR young so I really like this photo. However their marriage was more of a friendship as he had a serious affair with Lucy Mercer and there's some pretty steamy letters between her and journalist Lorena Hickok making many believe she was queer. Regardless both played a huge role in US history and still loved to this day.
Well I've tried a few posts like this and you guys weren't too interested so hopefully this will do better. The debate is: was the Vietnam War necessary? Possibly the most protested war of the 20th century it is still debated about today with more and more people believing it wasn't justified. Personally I feel it wasn't at all a just war and there was no point to the war besides preventing communism and imperialist land gains. However one of the biggest problems was how the US dealt with Vietnam after the war, completely pulling out and letting the country fall apart. There was also the fact the causes *cough cough Tonkin gulf* were shady and unjust. Lastly are the long term effects such as Agent Orange defects, PTSD and the huge refugee crisis. The only justifications I've heard for the war was the fact the US helped France, but if you guys have any other reasons it was justified or unjustified say so in the comments. Just be respectful!
Victoria Melita with her first daughter Elisabeth and her 2 other daughter from her second marriage, Maria and Kira. I've always found Victoria Melita as a selfish and unloving mother towards Ella, shown by her simply seeing her daughter's death as finally being freed from her Hessen marriage. Plus Ella even said she felt unloved by her mother. Opinions?
Photos of Elisabeth of Hesse-Darmstadt, later known as Grand Duchess Yelisabetta Feodorvna Romanova. She was such a kind and generous soul who cared so much for the well being of others, a lot like her mother. However like her mother and younger sister she lived a tragic life; dead mother, no children, widowed young, and murdered by Bolsheviks. However her legacy of kindness and charity is still left.
