Almanac of Wurzburg 2019 - International Directory of Nobility and Royalty By Daniel Coberly v. Reichenberg
Hardcover: $62.65
Prints in 3-5 business days
Various monarchies, sovereign houses, and states have long kept records of members of royal and noble houses. The Almanach de Gotha served as a form of privately-published social register across... More > national boundaries for European royalty and nobility from the late 18th century until its records were destroyed by the Soviets in 1944. Diligent researchers located medieval data at the Würzburg Archives in the Würzburger Residenz, Germany. Data found there helped form the basis of the reconstructed Almanac of Würzburg, making it a useful historical directory of ancient and modern royalty & nobility. The Almanac includes reigning and non-reigning sovereign houses, higher nobility, and nobles of many nations. While some revisionists of history purport today that original Almanacs, such as the Almanach de Gotha, were legal documents, they in fact were not. They were simply an early version of a "Who's Who" among royalty & nobility and served mainly as a social register.< Less

(1 Ratings)
In medieval Germany, combat was a matter of life and death, and knowing the Art of Fencing was to have control over it: to have the power to save or take lives. Those who knew the Art of Fencing kept... More > such knowledge as a closely guarded secret. In 15th century Bavaria, a small and secretive fellowship of fencing masters encoded their knowledge into a cryptic verse. Their Art, the ‘one true art of the sword’, was reserved only for the initiated. At the head of this fellowship was a grand-master known as Johannes Liechtenauer. Presented within this book is an investigation of the Company of Liechtenauer, tracing their connections and influences through archival records spanning more than a century. Scholarly Fencing is contrasted with what was referred to as ‘Common Fencing’. Separating the common from the initiated, this book demonstrates the Aristotelian and Scholastic approach that defined the secret Art of Liechtenauer, and describes the science of sword-fighting in the 15th and 16th centuries.< Less

Paperback: $24.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
The fact of Jewish Ritual Murder (JRM), happening at least occasionally or sporadically, has been established beyond doubt via church and secular records throughout ancient, medieval and modern... More > times, including formal juridical proceedings. This book by Hellmut Schramm, Ph.D., forms an exposition of those records and is a valuable addition to the historiography on this subject.

Prints in 3-5 business days
When first beginning research to find her family's history, Diana sought out the descendants of the Simon family in the St. Louis area to learn that the place they came from had something to do with... More > 'swans.' She later learned that they came from Swanden, in the Canton of Glarus in Switzerland. Then through her great-grandfathers obituary in Davenport, Iowa, she was able to place the Millers/Moellers in Schoenberg, Schleswig-Holstein. The Hansens and the Carstensens were just as influential as the Carstensens were the "Kings Royal Forest Rangers." Enjoy the journey as you learn how they came to Davenport, Iowa from Schoenberg on the edge of the Baltic Sea in Germany (where they were fishermen) and the Alps of Switzerland (where they were of Jewish faith) to the small village of Cordova, on the banks of the muddy Mississippi after the Civil War. More than 40 generations, the families reach back to 860 A.D. and include medieval rulers of Europe.< Less
The Hyacinth Girl By Wot Blowers
eBook (PDF): $3.92
Eliot’s The Waste Land was the inspiration for this modern Quest for the Grail. While the land might not be laid waste, the lives of so many people patently are. Youthful idealism is lost, we... More > fall in love with the wrong people, we treat the right people badly, we lose sight of a world we once thought might hold hope. This story tells of the lives and loves of Reinhold Walter and Lena Robson. From the hope and optimism of youth to the realization as the years pass that they are in danger of becoming trapped in the Waste Land, their lives run in parallel. Yet neither quite lose sight of what they both, independently, regard as their Quest, despite Reinhold’s disastrous marriage and Lena’s betrayal by the men she has loved. From wartime Germany to present day England, from London to the Lake District and Eastern Europe to New York, poverty lies with plenty, kindness with monstrous ingratitude; and like the medieval questors, each must ultimately ask the Question that will lead to resolution and healing.< Less
Then Arthur Fought: The Condensed Matter of Britain By Howard M. Wiseman
eBook (ePub): $5.61
The historical Arthur, if he existed, was a battle-leader of the dark-age (5th-6th century) Britons against the invading Anglo-Saxons. In the Middle Ages, he was a figure of legend, pseudohistory... More > (false history), and romance, and in modern times the hero of countless novels. ‘Then Arthur Fought’ is something new: a quasi-history (as-if-it-were history) of Arthur – a plausible chronicle compatible with known history. Drawing upon hundreds of medieval texts, and his own inventions, Wiseman has forged a unique conception of Arthur and his times. It spans close to 300 years (from the decline of Roman Britain to the English conquest of the Britons’ last lowland territories), and much of Europe – the fortunes of war take Arthur or his compatriots to Gaul, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Byzantium. This abridged version of 'Then Arthur Fought' for e-readers is illustrated by 20 colour maps. It will appeal to anyone interested in dark-age history and legends, or in new frameworks for Arthurian fiction.< Less
