In 1220 Alexander II granted the lands of Caerlaverock to Sir John Maxwell, Warden of the West March. He built the first castle on the site, however, John’s successor abandoned this castle in favour of a new site a few hundred metres to the north. ▫️ The castle's proximity to the English border saw it involved in the Wars of Independence. In 1298 the castle found itself in the direct line of invasion as Edward’s army made its way to the Battle of Falkirk. The sixty man garrison of Caerlaverock, mounted a spirited resistance but ultimately the castle was taken. ▫️ A peace treaty of 1328 brought short term security to the border and Caerlaverock was repaired and re-occupied but the attempted coup of Edward Balliol, resulted in yet another attack on the castle; in 1355 Sir Roger Kirkpatrick captured and partially dismantled the castle. Thereafter the castle was once again restored to the Maxwells and underwent rebuilding between 1373-1450. ▫️ The castle saw action again as a result of the Scottish Reformation. As the Protestant movement gained traction, the Maxwells remained Catholic. Accordingly they supported Mary Queen of Scots even after her abdication in 1567 resulting in Caerlaverock being besieged in 1570. The castle was captured and partially demolished. In 1593 Lord Maxwell repaired the castle, however the family were stripped of Caerlaverock and all titles following the murder of Sir James Johnstone in 1608. ▫️ Caerlaverock along with their other titles, was restored to the Maxwell Clan in 1617. But the family, which remained loyally Catholic, was embroiled in the Bishops War. In 1640 the army besieged Caerlaverock and, after a thirteen week siege, forced its surrender. The castle was slighted and never rebuilt. ▫️ Image by @travelswithakilt ———————————— #scottish #lovescotland #scotland #historicscotland #travel #visitscotland #love_scotland #travelinggram #thisisscotland #abandoned_addiction #brilliantbritain #ig_worldclub #igersscotland #goexplore #castle #discoverglobe #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #history #castlesofscotland #scotlandsbeauty #passionpassport #discoverscotland #greatnorthcollective #travelblogger #abandoned #castleruins #dronestagram

On 17 November 1939, the last big demonstrations against the German occupation of Czech territories take place. Following the funeral of student protest leader Jan Opletal on the 15th, many Czech students protest on the streets of Prague once more. The massive demonstrations are violently suppressed by the Germans. Hitler gives permission to execute protesters without trial, and says that if there would be any more demonstrations, he would ‘flatten’ Prague. Nine Czech students die by German Gestapo bullets that day. In addition, the Germans close Czech educational institutes. . Many more students, roughly 2000, are arrested. 1200 of them will be sent to labour and concentration camps, the other 800 will be set free. German authorities wanted to shut down the ‘intellectuals who, in cooperation with ex-president Benesj, were disturbing the peace in the protectorate of of Bohemia and Moravia.’ The Czech colleges in Prague are shut down for a set period of three years. .

⠀ .....когда две дамы встречают друг друга в этой жизни, всегда начинает происходить что-то интересное...... всегда...... ⠀ .......и какой это интересный процесс, правда в большей части, конечно это наша забава, но это всегда красивый танец двух женских душ, встретившихся в одном моменте..... проносящих свою особенную историю сквозь пространство и возможно, да...... по окончании этой истории они начнут ещё одну...... а возможно крепко обнимутся и разбегуться каждая по своим губерниям..... ⠀ ......но совершенно точно, та история из чувств, эмоций и впечатлений от происходящего в моменте, будет написана на папирусе и станет потом или легендой или мифом, да да!!!!! и не меньше!!!!!..... к чему тогда вообще вся эта заварушка:)..... ⠀ #germany🇩🇪

RҒ - Alexander Zverev defeats Rᴏɢᴇʀ Fᴇᴅᴇʀᴇʀ 7-5 7-6 (5) and moves on to the Finals. Federer played a really good first set with some great attacking play until 5-5 he got broken, and after that his game just broke down. The second set tiebreaker at 4-3 for Federer the ballboy dropped the ball and Zverev got a first serve, he hitted an ace, what nonsense, Fed was right in the point that time. Is it just me or is Federer hitting his forehand differently? He hits it more like Nadal with so much topspin and action on it. He used to hit his forehand much flatter especially on this type of surface. Maybe it's still his hand who knows...it's over guys don't know what it is or what to say, the RF team needs to do something about this, he needs to be more consistent with his shots, he is donating too much points in a Tennis match, you can't win matches like that. Hope you will come back stronger @RogerFederer 💙 we always believe in you! See you at the #Hopmancup next year! Enjoy your time off with your family and beautiful twins! Love you Roger! ❤

This photograph was on an unused postcard for the presidential campaign in 1960. ——•—— I adore this photo and I couldn’t decide if I wanted to use it today or tomorrow for the anniversary. I’m one hundred percent not ready for it but I’m compiling a list of my favorite quotes and preparing a little message dedicated to Jack. I’m going to try and get 6 posts out for the day if I can. Much love. :)
