Alexander the third of Macedonian ruled in the period of 332 BC. History prominently knows him as the great Alexander. He conquered the then province of Egypt in the autumn of 332 BC. The Egyptians had started rebelling against the Persian rule, and they needed a change in governance. They felt a need for a saviour and a liberator. Then was the right time for Alexander to take over and lay strong and lasting foundations for the people. Alexander marched south into Egypt after the conquer of Persia’s naval base along the coastal line. He stayed in Egypt for six months.

Alexander was determined to have a robust coastal base as it would guarantee a long-term military advantage and for also commercial purposes. He needed that which he could communicate across the Mediterranean not forgetting the highly profitable trade network he wanted to alter route from the Phoenicia. Late October 332 BC, his Macedonian army travelled the precarious 130 miles in seven days to arrive at the coastal town of Pelusium. They were aided by additional troops who followed his progress cautiously to the coast.

His reputation got the attention of Mazaces Egypt’s Persian governor who came to him with no armed forces and with no support following the defeat of Darius. Darius had promptly departed back to Persia. He brought with him treasury’s 800 talents and all the royal furniture. In reciprocation, Mazaces was kept on as part of the new administration together with new governor Cleomenes.

The journey to Memphis (traditional capital city of Egypt province) commenced after garrisons were installed at the major points of Pelusium. Alexander then commanded his navy force to sail south up the Nile to Memphis at the crest of the delta. He strategised to reach there by land at the head of the navy. By passing by Heliopolis (ancient religious site) also known as Lulu with its huge obelisks and white temples portrayed a high profile of the twenty-four (24) year old leader and his troops.

Alexander rose at the time when the Persian king had greatly angered the Egyptians. The vast exploitation of the grain stores and the tax imposed on them led to more rebellion. He easily won the hearts of many and garnered double grown of the two lands; 14th November 332 BC he was anointed pharaoh in the traditional capital city and being named as the son of the gods by the high priest. The naming was a tradition dating back to 3000 years.

He left Memphis in January 331 BC and sailed down the western branch of Nile to check on the Greek trading colony of Naucratis. By April 331 BC, Alexander had done exemplarily recommendable work. He then left Egypt a changed person during the same period of spring. Although he did not return to Egypt to see his great foundation, he was brought back ten (10) years later for the burial of his mummified body.

Facts about ancient Egyptians

For us, Egyptian history is like a fairy tale full of mystery and fantasy. Antique Egyptian goddesses and gods signified natural and supernatural aspects of the Egyptians and they were vital in their lives. Ancient Egyptians were some of the most religious individuals on Earth and they believe strongly in supernatural presences.

If you want to know more about this unique culture, keep reading the following facts that you possibly didn’t know:

  1. The ancient Egyptians believe in more than 2000 deities and the majority of them could take the form of animals. The same animal was a different deity depending on the temple, and area.
  2. The gods were represented with a human silhouette and an animal head. On the other hand, animal bodies with a human head were symbols of kings.
  3. Most known and important Egyptian gods and goddesses are Isis, Sobek, Ra, Horus, Osiris, Seth, Anubis, Kheper, Thoth, and Bastet.
  4. Ra was the most outstanding God to the people; he was the son of God and he was the ultimate ruler of all Gods. They believe he created all forms of life.
  5. Sobek was one of the longest and also, most important gods of the Egyptian culture. He was the guardian of waterways and he ate flesh like a crocodile.
  6. Nowadays we have different forms of Christianity like Methodism, Catholicism, etc. Ancient Egyptians also had diverse schools of religions where they could express different forms of thoughts.
  7. Demons also played a relevant role in Ancient Egyptians beliefs. Even though they were less influential than the gods with smaller powers, they were immortal and they could be in multiples places.
  8. The goddess of love, beauty, and magic was Isis. She was one of the greatest goddess daughters of Earth God and Sky Goddess.

  10. The busiest god wasn’t one of the most known. Bes, the god of babies, household, nightmare, and mothers, was the hardest worker of all the gods.
  11. You may notice in different Egyptians movies that the scarab is commonly shown. This insect represented protection and resurrection. The people used to wear amulets for its safety.
  12. Pharaohs were very important for the ancient Egyptian culture. They were in the middle of the people and Gods. The role of the pharaohs was to maintain the balance keeping a great relationship with the deities. When a pharaoh died could become a depending on the weight of his heart.

Joan of Arc

In commemoration of the International Women’s day, we’ll talk about an outstanding woman who fought endlessly during the Hundred Years War: Joan of Arc. Nicknamed as “The Maid of Orléans,” this lady was born in 1412 in Domrémy, France. Her parents were poor farmers named, Jacques d’ Arc and his spouse, Isabelle. A national heroine in her country, at the young age of 18, she led the army to victory.

By the time Joan of Arc came to the world, the situation in France was very complicated. The country was involved in a long war with England. As we mentioned before, this war was known as The Hundred Years War, and the dispute focused on who would be the heir to the throne of France. At an early age, Joan of Arc will develop an interest in the situation in her country that will lead her to fight for the causes she believes fair.

Although we know her as Joan of Arc, she called herself Jehanne la Pucelle or Joan the Maid. “Pucelle” means maid and as well implies she was a virgin woman; a fact that was very important for the society since they treasured more the female virginity than marriage. Her military career didn’t last long, just one year from 1429 to 1430 when she was sadly captured by troops that were loyal to John of Luxembourg. Therefore, she was delivered to forces loyal to English, King Henry VI. She was condemned and burned at stake in 1931.

When Joan was captured by the English troops, she was locked in a castle until the day of trial. One day, she became so frantic that she decided to jump off the castle. Maybe she was trying to do a suicide attempt, or she just wanted to scape. Unfortunately, they recaptured her, and she had to face her inevitable fate.

Joan didn’t engage in combat; on the contrary, her role was more strategic. She was the military that rallied the troops and helps them with the premeditated plan to pursue next. Joan’s weapon was her banner, and she carried throughout the battle instead of any weapon. In fact, you may find a famous quote of her saying: “I love my banner forty times better than my sword. And when I went against my enemy, I carried my banner myself, lest I kill any. I have never killed a man.”

Even after her death, controversies concerning her life remain dormant to the present days, questioning if she was really a woman or even if she was killed or remain alive until the age of 57. There are countless of theories of her life and nothing is entirely sure about her journey, the truth is, she has endured in the hearts of the French people, and they celebrated as a hero. And of course, worldwide, she is an icon of the history that helped to shape an entire nation.



Today we discuss the life of one of the well-known characters in Native American History: Pocahontas.  In popular culture, she is considered to be a princess.

While the exact birth year of Pocahontas is unknown, historians have estimated it to have been around 1596. The basis for this is from A True Relation of Virginia where John Smith had described the Pocahontas he had met in the spring of 1608 as ten years old.

Pocahontas was the daughter of Powhatan, the prime chief of Tsenacommacah, an alliance of about thirty Algonquian-speaking groups and petty chiefdoms in Tidewater, Virginia. Very little is known about Pocahontas’ mother other than she was one of the dozens of wives taken by Powhatan. In the traditional histories of their people, Pocahontas’ mother died in childbirth.

At the time she was born, it was common for Powhatan Native Americans to be given several personal names. They usually had  more than one name at a time, had secret names that only a select few knew, or to change their names on important occasions. While an odd custom by our standards, Pocahontas lived when this was the norm. Early on in her life, she had a secret name: Matoaka. This means “Bright Stream Between the Hills”.  Later on, she was also known as Amonute. No known translation of this name was found.

The name of “Pocahontas” was a childhood nickname that was given due to her frolicsome nature. Her name translated to “little wanton” or even “playful one” in their dialect.

The story wherein she is most well-known for is saving Captain John Smith. This English colonist arrived in Virginia with a hundred other settlers in April of 1607. In December of the same year, Smith was captured by a hunting party led by Powhatan’s younger brother Opechancanough and was brought to the capital at Werowocomoco.

It was later in 1616 that in a letter written to Queen Anne that John Smith told what had happened while he was in captivity and how he came to be released. He told the queen that it was Pocahontas who braved getting killed herself and asked her father to set him free.

Most historians doubt the credibility of the tale as Smith latter on made another account of a similar event occurring to him when he was captured by Turks in Hungary. So it is the belief of most historians that Smith was saved but not with the dramatics that he had earlier told. It was probably with the intent of producing a more dramatic account of his encounter with Pocahontas as a heroine worthy of reception by Queen Anne.

Pocahontas was captured during the first Anglo-Powhatan War. It was a conflict between the Jamestown settlers and the Native Americans that began late in the summer of 1609. She was tricked aboard Captain Samuel Argall’s ship and was held for ransom. Argall demanded the release of English prisoners held by her father, along with various stolen weapons and tools.

Powhatan returned the prisoners but was not able to satisfy the colonists with the number of weapons and tools he returned. So Pocahontas was kept in captivity. It is here that historians debate on the fact whether or not Pocahontas was raped. As in the oral traditions handed down over four centuries, it is asserted that she was and that she had borne a child.

It was also this time in captivity that she was indoctrinated into the Christian faith. When she underwent baptism, she took the Christian name Rebecca. It was also during this time that she met John Rolfe.

She married him in April 5, 1614. It was said that he married her for the sake of his tobacco plantation and for the purpose of “saving her soul”. It is unknown how she felt toward John Rolfe. Their marriage prompted a psuedo-peace and the end of the first Anglo-Powhatan war. The English then decided to bring her to England to be the symbol of the tamed New World savage and the success of the Jamestown settlement.

Her father still tried to get his daughter back but to no avail. It is said that he died before he laid eyes on his favorite child. In March 1617, John Rolfe and Pocahontas boarded a ship to return to Virginia. She was struck with an illness and died.

While the exact reason of her death is unclear, it is postulated that it was either pneumonia, smallpox, or tuberculosis.

The Odd Life of Kim Jong-nam

The name Kim Jong-nam recently dominated world headlines once again as reports of his assassination spread. For those unfamiliar with him, Kim Jong-nam is the elder half brother of North Korea’s current leader, Kim Jong-un.

As the eldest son of former leader Kim Jung-il, he was made heir apparent in 1994 yet lost favor in 2001.

Early Life

Kim Jong-nam was the son of Kim Jong -il and Song Hye-rim. Song Hye-rim is one of the three women who is factually known to have a child by the old leader. At the time, Kim Jong-il had wanted to keep his affair with Song a secret. Their liaison was not favored by Kim Il-sung, the leader of that time, so Kim Jong-nam was kept out of school.

Instead, the young Kim Jong-nam was sent to live with his mother’s sister, Song Hye-rang, who was willing and able to educate him in her home. From Song Hye-rang’s reports, it was plain that Kim Jong-nam shared the same personal attributes as his father. She called him hot-tempered, sensitive, and quite gifted in the arts.

Much like his brother, Kim Jong-nam was also interested in film making. He was purported to have made several scripts and short films despite his young age.

As Heir Apparent

It was in 1998 that Kim Jong-nam was appointed to a senior position in the Ministry of Public Security of the DPRK. This was a precursor to his eventual position of being future leader. It was also reported that he was assigned as the head of the DPRK Computer Committee. This particular department was fully responsible for developing North Korea’s information technology industry.

Despite all this, it was rumored that he had no desire, in truth, to succeed his father.

The Tokyo Disneyland Issue

It was on May of 2001 that Kim Jong-nam was arrested as soon as he arrived at the Narita International Airport of Japan. At the time, he was accompanied by two women and a four-year-old boy who was later identified as his son.

The issue was that Kim Jong-nam was travelling using a forged Dominican Republic passport using a Chinese alias, Pang Xiong. After his short detention in Japan, he was deported to China where he was quoted to have been destined for Tokyo Disneyland. In light of the furor that occurred because of this, Kim Jong-il canceled his trip to China over the embarrassment of the event.

It was shortly after this incident that it was rumored that Kim Jong-nam fell out of favor with his father. In 2003, the Korean People’s Army began a propaganda campaign under the slogan “The Respected Mother is the Most Faithful and Loyal Subject to the Dear Leader Comrade Supreme Commander”. This propaganda was made to benefit Ko Young-hee, another woman who had sons with Kim Jong-il.

At the time, Kim Jong-nam was living in Macau for an extended period which strongly lent credibility to the claims that he was to be overlooked in favor of his younger brother, Kim Jong-un.


Much later, Kim Jong-nam wrote an email to the editor of the Tokyo Shimbun and said, “After I went back to North Korea following my education in Switzerland, I grew further apart from my father because I insisted on reform and market-opening and was eventually viewed upon with suspicion. My father felt very lonely after sending me to study abroad. Then my half brothers Jong-chol and Jong-un and half sister Yo-jong were born and his adoration was moved on to them. And when he felt that I’d turn into a capitalist after living abroad for years, he shortened the overseas education of my brothers and sister.”


It was on February 13, 2017 that Kim Jong-nam was assassinated in Malaysia by two unidentified women. He was on a return trip to Macau at the low-cost carrier terminal of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport. The method of his murder is still unclear.

Malaysian police confirmed that Kim Jong-nam had died while being transferred from the airport to the Putrajaya Hospital. He is survived by his six children.

Isabella I of Castile

Isabel I de Castilla was born in Madrigal de las Altas Torres, Avila on April 22, 1451. She would grow up to be queen of Castile and Aragon. Alongside her husband, Ferdinand II of Aragon, their reign was a pivotal turning point for the Iberian Peninsula. It was their marriage that solidified the two kingdoms of Castile and Aragon. They shared power equally and established a code of law which strengthened the monarchy and enable the toppling of the power that the nobles held within their kingdom.

A pious Catholic all her life, she made it her mission to regain the final Muslim-ruled territories and fully conquer Spain. She was held responsible for creating the Inquisition. She had citizens, even the Jews and the Muslims, convert into Catholics or be expelled from the country. While this was marked by history as a misplaced religious zeal which destroyed what was a remarkable religious tolerance and co-existence, at the time she was lauded for her dedication to the Catholic faith–particularly by the pope.

For her time, Isabella was quite forward thinking when it came to her marriage and the role she would play. She entered into the marriage with Ferdinand with a prenuptial  agreement that stated she would be on equal terms. She would be a ruling monarch in her own right. In historical texts, it was marked how she would ride into battle in full armor and how the majority of their army looked to her for morale and leadership. It was believed that her rule had the blessing of God.

Her rule forced the mass exit of Jews and Muslims and their immigration to lads throughout Europe and North Africa; others “converted” yet practiced their real faith in secret were hunted down and purified by the Inquisition.

Isabella, once establishing peace, sought forth to progress the empire and funded Christopher Columbus and his explorations. These exploits of his led in Spain’s overseas empires and Spanish domination of Europe for the next century. This also led to the mass Christianization of the people of Latin America and the use of Spanish as the base language of millions.

Her achievements were many and great. Spain was wholly united. The power in the country was held by and centralized by the crown and no longer under the yolk of nobles. She rehabilitated the finances of the Spanish crown which was left in heavy debt under the reign of her brother Henry IV. With this as a foundation, Isabella and her husband created a legal framework for their country and The Catholic Church was successfully reformed. Through her children, she made splendid political alliances which allowed her to outflank France.

Despite this, there were several points in their rule that left quite the bad impression. The Inquisition and its intolerant treatment of religious minorities was famous for its cruelty. When the Muslims left, they took with them their advance knowledge in medicine. As a result, when plagues and illnesses wreaked havoc on local towns, populations were decimated.

Isabella officially withdrew from governmental affairs on the 14th of September 1504 and several weeks later, passed away. Several decades later, there were talks about her being canonized as a saint but that was left with much opposition from Jew organizations. While this is still being debated on in Rome, there really is no doubt that she was a woman her made her mark in history.

Neferneferuaten Nefertiti

Nefertiti was an Egyptian queen whose name has stood the test of time. She is arguably one of the more well-known Egyptian historical figures despite this, there is very little that is actually known about her. Regardless of the mysteries that surround her personage, stories of her beauty and power serve as a beacon to allure scholars and researchers to this day.

There are several rumors about Nefertiti that refuse to die like she was the Mitanni Princess Tadukhipa—this was disproved as Tadukhipa was already married to Akhenaten’s father and there was no other evidence to suggest why the princess would need to alter her name. There are some historical evidences that surface to suggest that Nefertiti came from a town called Akhmim. Nefertiti held many titles which include Hereditary Princess, Great of Praises, Lady of Grace, Lady of Two Lands, Great King’s Wife, Lady of all Women, and Mistress of Upper and Lower Egypt.

She was thrust into the international limelight when her bust, which was crafted in 1345 BC, was found in the workshop of Thutmose in 1912. It currently resides in the Berlin’s Neues Museum.

It was believed that Nefertiti married Akhenaten when she was just 15 years old. Certain hieroglyphics depicted that the couple ruled together from 1353 to 1336 BC. Other records also indicated that their marriage had born six daughters. Although there is no concrete evidence to yet support the idea, some theorize that Nefertiti and Akhenated had a son. One of their daughters, Ankhesenamun, would eventually marry her half-brother Tutankhamun.

One of Nefertiti’s well known accomplishments is her active role in the establishment of the Aten (the sun) cult.  The pharaoh’s name was originally Amenhotep IV which was changed to Akhenaten to honor their deity. Even Nefertiti’s name shifted to Neferneferuaten-Nefertiti which means “beautiful are the beauties of Aten, a beautiful woman has come”. This was a show of her absolute devotion to their deity and their religion.

A reason why Nefertiti’s legend endures to this day is because of all the power she was said to have wielded during her time. Her husband was said to go to great lengths to show his subject that his queen was his equal. She is depicted wearing the crown of a pharaoh in some uncovered murals and in others she is even seen smiting her enemies in battle. One popular theory about Nefertiti is that she became the ruler Neferneferuaten; although, this is still highly up for debate.

A curious occurrence, however, was that around 12 years after the many reliefs that depicted Nefertiti and her accomplishments—all trace of her disappears. It is uncertain as to why; some scholars go as far as to speculate that she was exiled when the worship of Amen-Ra became popular once again. Another theory was that she fell into disgrace and discredited.

While there is never a lack of rumors and theories about Nefertiti’s death and burial, or what is that truly became of her, it is to be noted that her remains have never been formally found or identified. This is probably why the legend and allure of Nefertiti will continue on until we have more concrete answers to quench our thirst.

What does Brexit mean for Europe?

What does Brexit mean for Europe?

As Britain gears up to exit the European Union before the end of 2017, Europe and the rest of the world eagerly wait to see what the impacts of the exit will be. The E.U. is a political and economic partnership between 28 European nations. It has over the recent years, however, experience some discord as distrust and founds its way among the union’s members. The distrust is a key reason for Britain’s decision to break from the association.

The move to exit did have its fair share of support and disapproval with a few being undecided. The Electoral Commission, with the approval of Cameron, did a poll based on the question – if the U.K. should exit or remain in the E. U. The outcome of the referendum has 45.6% of the respondents support the exit and 54.4% voted for the United Kingdom to stay. The exit is a big move, one that Britain says it will not back out from and will ensure there are no attempts to rejoin the European Union in future.

The U.K will have two years to determine come up with solid terms of its exit. And, after the exist, the nation will have a few more years to forge new economic relationships with the remaining European Union countries. The process of establishing new economic partnerships and agreements with the those left in the consortium may take around ten years. As such, new and existing enterprises in Britain may face uncertain times in the few years to come.

On top of the issues raised that lead to the exit is that of immigration. Many British citizens raised concerns about the influx of immigrants into the country, which has affect various economic elements such as housing and availability of jobs. The refugee crisis fueled the growing push for the exit. As such, Brexit would have a significant impact of immigration and this would see some notable changes in the existing immigration laws and policies for the U.K. and which would affect the rest of Europe.

What direction things take remains only to be seen after Brexit takes effect. The European Union members and other European nations as well as the rest of the world are keen on knowing where Britain stands (what kind of relationship it has with the E.U.).

The impacts of Brexit on the United Kingdom and the larger Europe will mostly be felt in the economy. The breakaway will solicit positive and negative outcomes much of which will be based on how the consortium members and the rest of the world will react after the exit. A majority of the E.U. members fear that issues of job losses and economic uncertainty will be Britain’s undoing after their exit from the union.

On the positive side, the exit will mean that Britain will have a more freedom to trade with other nations and global companies. Businesses in other parts of Europe and the world, both new and existing, will be more inclined to trade with Great Britain. Emerging enterprises in the E.U. nations will, however, be reluctant to do business with British companies.

King Tut Ancient Egypt


In thе уеаr 1922, the tоmb of a Phаrаоh wаѕ unсоvеrеd in the сеmеtеrу of the Pharaohs оf ancient Egурt. In the Vаllеу of the Kings оf Egурt and fоr the vеrу fіrѕt tіmе, this tomb thаt wаѕ unсоvеrеd wаѕ still sealed.
