Mayflower

The Pilgrims who sailed on the Mayflower are usually thought of as Puritan worthies. In fact, they mostly belonged to an obscure and unremembered sect called the Brownists. The real story of the sailing of this group of eccentrics and indentured servants is told in LONDON: 'God's Fire'.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
The award for shortest reign in history goes to…Louis-Antoine Duke of Angoulême of France ! Louis XIX ruled for approximately 20 minutes – the time between when his father Charles X of France signed abdication papers in 1830 and the moment he too wielded a quill, signing away his rights to the throne.
