Three egyptian pyramids were built by a single pharaoh, Sneferu. Only one was (probably) used as a tomb (the Red Pyramid): the two others (the Bent pyramid and the Meidum pyramid) are thought be either rough drafts or failed tries. They're still standing today, because as some Umayyad caliphs found out millennia later, it takes as much effort to destroy a pyramid as it takes to build one

This is Maria Carolina, sister of Marie Antoinette and queen of Naples and Sicily. Once she got married with her "very ugly" spanish husband (called simultaneously Ferdinand III and IV, then Ferdinand I) she did her best to establish a Habsburg foothold by removing the incompetent king's advisors and replacing all of them with her own, including her good friend sir John Action (who Ferdinand was furiously jealous of)
A freemason, she brought an era of enlightened absolutism on southern Italy. The death of Marie Antoinette at the hand of revolutionaries horrified her, to the point that she refused to even speak french, and eventually turned Naples into a police state. As nearly all european royalty she was an enemy of Napoleon, who still thought enough of her to call her "the only man in the Kingdom of Naples". She suffered several military defeats against him and her life ended in exile in Vienna. Like her mother she was very aware that the Habsburg family's influence was dwindling, and had 18 children (less than half survived to adulthood) to further establish themselves over Europe. This ended up going beyond her expectations, as her granddaughter Marie Louise married the very same Napoleon

If you look at the painting you'll notice, along with the incredible hair and gorgeous jewels and fan, the very elaborate stomacher, which is a triangular piece of clothing worn on the stomach. They're often so complex that, just like here, the artist struggles to depict them accurately

If anyone is interested in about the specific lives of women in history "The history chicks" started around 2011 (not good sound quality from the early episodes) and is still ongoing. There's also "What'sHerName" which is newer and I have only listened to a couple episodes so far. Both are a bit libfem, but not annoyingly so. If anyone can recommend other female focus history podcasts I would appreciate. I feel like learning individual stories about women throughout history broadened my view about how women acted during the past after being told that they were all 'submissive little wives who stayed home and sew before feminism ruined things' when I was young.

I just watched a movie about Philippa Langley who was the woman behind the discovery and exhumation on Richard III.'s body (the movie's name was The Lost King). Sure, the story was romanticized somewhat but that was pretty fascinating how passionate a woman like her did a lot of research, opened a branch of the Richard III society in Scotland and followed her instincts, and it all lead to finally finding Richard III's remains.
It was very inspiring.

>Eilev Bråtene
>A Norwegian storyteller born in 1828, Bø in Telemark. Described as a very short hunched man with round glasses in front of intelligent eyes. He used an axe as a walking stick, wore a rucksack that always had stuff hanging out of it and held various tinkering tools in his other hand that he used as a counterbalance. He hardly ever bathed, but was still welcomed by everyone as both young and old knew him as a captivating storyteller.
>According to himself, he had met both a Jutul (type of giant) and the hulder who tried to seduce him. He married a widow 24 years older than him, who was known for her physical strength. On the day of their wedding, she that carried him over a river they had to cross to get to the church, to the amusement of the locals.
>Some of his stories was documented by Ingebret Moltke Moe, son of Jørgen Moe who gathered stories that you might know like "Three Billy Goats Gruff" and "Chicken Little".
>Eilev Bråtene died in 1899 when the 70 year old lost his footing and fell into a river. The newspaper obituary described him as an (roughly translated) "old weirdo".
