For the world must remain in balance, and none are closer connected to the forces of the world than the long lived folk themselves. Elven twins are often orphans. That is how The Fair Folk Are.. Their later years together, the Gordons had amassed a small fortune. And they began giving their time and money. Ed Gordon died in 2008 and left more than $3 million to that school, Jacobs said..
How else could this have happened? I sent HP a msg but have not yet heard back. I contacted the owner of TBS and it’s in ticket status right now.Shesabutterflyposted 4 months agoin reply to thisI noticed this a few days ago when someone else made a comment about it. The only thing I can find is a bunch of old forum posts which shouldn’t be public that link out to something completely unrelated to the forums or the content discussed on those pages.
It pre dates the tale of Lancelot and Guinevere and many believe that some elements were taken from the story of Tristan and Isolde for use in the love story of Lancelot and Guinevere by Sir Thomas Malory when he wrote the romance ‘Le Morte d’Arthur’ in the 1400’s.There are two major versions of Tristan and Isolde and on many points the two accounts diverge. Because this makes for an ‘according to Beroul/according to Thomas’ situation, I have tried to steer a middle path and simplify the story down to its main components.Despite such editing, this story of an inadvertent and forbidden love still has the power to thrill and move the reader and it is easy to see how it has endured for well over a thousand years.Placing the love story in time.Whilst it is difficult to give an exact date to the events and characters in the story, it is known that one of the major characters, King Mark (Cornish: Margh), was in fact a king of Cornwall, or Kernow as it is still known in Cornish, during the early 6th century.It seems entirely possible that the story was handed down by the oral bardic tradition of story telling, or by written records, now lost, before being made into the courtly romances by French poets, Beroul and Thomas, who were possibly working from now missing manuscripts in the 12th century.A further tantalising fact as to the truth beneath this enduring legend is the strange remains of a 6th century standing stone just outside Fowey on the south coast of Cornwall carved with the Latin memorial inscription ‘Drustanus Hic Lacit Cunomori Filius’, meaning ‘Drustanus lies here, son of Cunomorus’.Historians believe that Drustanus is the latinised name for Tristan and there is some ancient evidence that Cunomorus, which means Hound of the Sea, is another name for King Mark. (See photographs below).If there is any truth in this it would make Tristan the son of King Mark rather than his nephew as in the stories.
