- I've been letting my keyboard do the walking again... so this weekend's
random trawl through cyberspace has turned up a mixed bag of things
A great general history of Bulgaria & the Bulgarians (NB - text comes up
quickly, but the pretty graphics take an age).
"Wonderland Bulgaria" (no, really!) - actually a commercial site, but a
hefty slice of cultural gumbo with sections on history, ethnography &
folklore, cuisine, SS Cyril & Methodius, various notable historical figures
Some source material [!!] from the same site. A translation of the
surprisingly short "List of Names of the Bulgarian Khans", apparently from
16th century Old Church Slavonic copies of earlier ?Greek originals.
"The Rulers of Bulgaria: A page on ALL Bulgarian Khans, Czars and Princes
till the end of the period of the Third Bulgarian State." Interesting
layout. Has a supershort note on the achievements (or otherwise) of each
ruler, and some PORTRAITS to relate to!
The "FAQ Server: Bulgaria" list of "Bulgarian Czars". In transliterated
Next time I'll head north again...
A far-away country of which we know little:
"Bohemia: a desert country near the sea"
[Shakespeare: Winter's Tale, III.iii, stage direction]
- I'm not doing any advertising for anyone but I thought that folks
would like to take a look at this site.
There is a picture of a lady with a Russian persona at this site
(Lillabet Rhudenko). While her garments are a little over the top,
but they are very illustrative of what a late period Russian
Czarevna or Czaritzha would have concievably worn. Its especially
impressive when one considers that the day this picture was taken was
hotter than Hades.
