Barnikel

The fine old English name of Barnikel, by legend, derives from a kindly Viking who told his men not to kill children. (Bairn-ni-kell) - although the name can also be found in Germany. Accounts of this legendary Viking and one of his descendants appear in SARUM. But the main story of a fictional family of this name occurs in LONDON, beginning with Hrothgar the Dane in 'The Conqueror'.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
Only one man was allowed to live in the royal palace of China, known as the Forbidden City: the emperor. All the other inhabitants were either women - wives, concubines or servants - or the famous palace eunuchs. Nearly all eunuchs were castrated when they were still only boys. But there were just a few who chose to be castrated after they became men, and even had children of their own. They did it for the money.
