Seal of Stephen, Count of Blois (ca. 1045-1102)
Stephen was one of the leaders of the first crusade. The count’s reputation was tarnished though by the fact that he fled Syria during the long siege of Antiochia. Stephen returned to Holy Land in 1101 and was killed at the second battle of Ramla (19.5.1102)

I love this photo because it reminds me of the good times I had later that day. My lodgings was a 14thC Inn that was turned into a well to do farm house in the 15th and then off I trotted to Windsor Castle, just 5 minutes away. Bliss. These are things I live for! #medieval #castle #windsor #unitedkingdom #england #britain #berkshire #kingsandqueens #history #14thcentury

My alchemist costume inspiration. I must admit, I’ve not been doing much alchemy this last 6 months or so, even though it has always been a crowd favourite. Anyone here want to see more alchemy? #medieval #alchemy #magic #science #chemistry #history
