I want to share a post from the blog of one of my favorite authors, Lauren Willig. She blogs a bit on the history of England's George III as well as an incident that occurred when she was in law school. It is amazing how random useless knowledge can come in handy at the most opportune times.
Check out the short anecdote on her blog.
Also check out her novels. She crafts fun and witty stories that are a mix of historical drama, mystery, romance and comedy. My personal favorite is The Seduction of the Crimson Rose with The Masque of the Black Tulip a close second.
