"The world is changed because you are made of ivory and gold. The curves of your lips rewrite history."
— Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
I'm Vicky, an nineteen year-old girl from Vienna, Austria.
This is a blog focussed on history and the amazing inspiration the past provides. I have the feeling that this part of my interests deserves a space for itself, since history and historical characters never fail to make me think, dream and leave me back in awe. I'm especially interested in the Tudor Era, the Habsburgs and Romanovs, the Italian renaissance and the human beings behind all these stories, their personalities and feelings. Empress Sisi, Crown Prince Rudolf, the last Romanovs and Anne Boleyn are utterly fascinating to me. You will also find a lot of The Tudors and The Borgias and Marie Antoinette here, as well as pictures that underline the general atmosphere of this blog, like castles, nature, art, historical interiors and black and white photographies.
