Best moment in television history
We’re Borgias, We Never Forgive! [Sex. Power. Murder. Amen]
Sick view!!!! 🌆
I actually found a death record for London in the year 1665 ( online), and one of the causes of death featured was the French Pox, AKA syphilis. I told my dad about and he said that in France they called it the English Pox. Disease is awesome.
*The French called it the Neapolitan Disease. Italians called it Morbus Gallicus (Disease of the French), but some called it The Venetian Disease (ha ha…the Venetians…they’re becoming a big part of my Final Season Project). Italians renamed it the “Spanish Disease” (because they didn’t like the implication that it came from Italians…blamed it on Columbus). Most blamed it on the French though (King Charles & his troops), which is why “the French Disease” is the most common nickname for it.
It’s not the disease that’s awesome…it’s the blame game played by rival countries that is awesome (ha ha).
I’m not ok
