  1. It’s now October 2nd–Richard III–our maligned king’s b’day.

  2. Happy late birthday to Richard!

  3. What a good day this was - both items appear in writing projects of mine! The Battle of Auray is referenced in my short story Bisclavert, and Frederick II is the subject of a novel that I was working on a couple of years ago!

  4. Mark, do you have a copy of Bisclavert available to read?
