I think that does the Roman Empire a disservice as they did all of that without guns, telegraph or steam power. They even had their own academics who questioned the morality of ‘superior civilisation’, conquest and imperialism.

Massie pointed that out in the beginning of N&A, to be a good King in England all that is required is to be a good man, not so in regards to being a Tsar.

Same thing happened to me the other day. Got hopelessly muddled about something. At least you were only retweeting something, I just wrote it down wrong.

Taq-e Bustan, , was originally the site of a Parthian royal hunting garden, but the Sassanians added their own regal stamp in the form of stone reliefs depicting the royal chase. The biggest features a boar hunt using elephant-mounted hunters to track down the game

I suppose then we must go on the likely reliability of it all. Reminds me that there’s another version of Wellington and Uxbridge’s ‘I’ve lost my leg’ bit.

I have a suspicion he’d be a good subject for a biography. Sitting between Cornwallis and Wellesley, is no joy for a legacy.

I’m almost a little disappointed I don’t have time to look at the life of Sir John Shore more deeply, Lord Teingmouth at first glance, seems an deeply interesting figure.
