I finish sharing knife #3 and am now on sharking knife #4; the series continues much the same and spoiler spoiler etc. also there is a map (I hadn't spotted that in volume 1) and in volume 3 Our Heroes go On A Journey which is about the most cliche fantasy thing ever, but it isn't really very cliche about it.

Died on this day in 1510 Thomas Brandon (my toy,wikipedia). Uncle of Charles who married Mary, sister of Henry VIII. Thomas was a diplomat, who was sent to negotiate peace with France. He was later appointed Master of the King's Horse, which title I think of as being full of innuendo...

Born on this day in 1242 to King Bela IV of Hungary and Maria Laskarina, St Margaret of Hungary (my toy,wikipedia). Great-grand-daughter of Bela; husband of Margaret; wife of Henry the Young King. Margaret was sent to a monastery to be raised, and decided to stay there. She seems to have been into chastising herself and taking on all the dirtiest tasks. Attempts to canonise Margaret after she died failed, and she eventually became a saint in 1943.
