Tea at Trianon: Blessed Karl and the First World War

Charles, the Holy Roman Emperor and family

War isn't my thing. Blood, guts and the thought of death never appealed to me.  Instead, I focus on other aspects the religious and social aspects of history. Oddly enough when I tell people I majored in history, they always ramble on about this battle or that. Memorizing battles isn't history. Instead, history comes from the individuals who lived it and their interpretations. For the past couple weeks, however, I've wanted to write another article on World War I. Not about the battles, but the people. The blog "Tea at Trianon," has a wonderful article about the Holy Roman Emperor, Charles, desperately seeking a peace treaty with the Allies during World War I. Unfortunately, Charles failed in his gallant attempt and "the rest they say, is history."

  1. Tea at Trianon always has the most fascinating articles! And Elena Maria Vidal's novels are fabulous, too.

  2. I agree her posts are fascinating! I haven't read her books yet, but maybe after I'm finished baking pies
