In Search of History

OK, I'm feeling cranky today. So rather than blog about the subject that's making me cranky, I'll share with you some recent search phrases that have brought people to my website:

buckingham beheaded by jenry v111

That Jenry! Probably meant to behead someone named Huckingham instead.

midievil divorce

No doubt from an evil woman.

edward i lovers

Maybe they'll feature in the prequel to Braveheart.

=edward iv s possible illegitimate birth out of consideration

Cecily of York taking politeness a bit too far?

queen isabella overweight

So that explains why things went sour between her and Edward II.

what was edward ii credited for
Feeding overweight Isabella lots of snacks?

what mistake did the earl of oxford make

Sending his son to Cambridge?

loyalty and devotion of king arthur chunks

Ah, Guinevere might have been faithless. But at least the chunks stood by him.

Bwahahahahahahaha. King Arthur chunks. tee hee.

Passages to the Past said...

That is priceless! Where do people get this stuff?

Sarah Johnson said...

It boggles the mind. However, I give that one person points for spelling "illegitimate" correctly.

I tried running some of these searches for fun. I still have no idea why your site popped up for King Arthur and chunks but now, you are stuck with it.

Jules Frusher said...

Fantastic! I would never know you were feeling cranky from these ;-)

But.... why can't I ever get funny blog searches?! I only seem to get people searching for 'hanging, drawing and quartering'!!!

At least we know the truth now about Isabella! And Mortimer was obviously into the fuller figure lol!

Kathryn Warner said...

LOL, those are great. I got 'King Edward Longshanks siege on Whales' the other day.

Gabriele Campbell said...

Judging from the Nano forums, it's amazing how many people can't spell Medi(a)eval despite writing novels set in that time. Google must have a score of possible mistakes on autocorrect to still find the right word.

HA! I wonder how Jenry would feel about that?

Feel better!!!
