Otto’s reign would prove troubled, but managed to last for 30 years before he and his wife, Queen Amalia , left the way they came, aboard a British warship. During the early years of his reign, a group of Bavarian Regents ruled in his name and made themselves very unpopular by trying to impose German ideas of rigid hierarchical government on the Greeks, while keeping most significant state offices away from them.
Nevertheless, they laid the foundations of a Greek administration, army, justice system and education system. Otto was sincere in his desire to give Greece good government, but he suffered from two great handicaps, his Roman Catholic faith, and the fact that his marriage to Queen Amalia remained childless.

Share King of England, born in ; died 5 January, When hardly ten years old he was sent with his brother Alfred into Normandy to be brought up at the court of the duke his uncle, the Danes having gained the mastery in England. Thus he spent the best years of his life in exile, the crown having been settled by Canute, with Emma’s consent, upon his own offspring by her. Early misfortune thus taught Edward the folly of ambition, and he grew up in innocence, delighting chiefly in assisting at Mass and the church offices, and in association with religious, whilst not disdaining the pleasures of the chase, or recreations suited to his station.
Upon Canute’s death in his illegitimate son, Harold, seized the throne, Hardicanute being then in Denmark, and Edward and his brother Alfred were persuaded to make an attempt to gain the crown, which resulted in the cruel death of Alfred who had fallen into Harold’s hands, whilst Edward was obliged to return to Normandy. On Hardicanute’s sudden death in , Edward was called by acclamation to the throne at the age of about forty, being welcomed even by the Danish settlers owing to his gentle saintly character.
His reign was one of almost unbroken peace, the threatened invasion of Canute’s son, Sweyn of Norway, being averted by the opportune attack on him by Sweyn of Denmark ; and the internal difficulties occasioned by the ambition of Earl Godwin and his sons being settled without bloodshed by Edward’s own gentleness and prudence.
He undertook no wars except to repel an inroad of the Welsh, and to assist Malcolm III of Scotland against Macbeth, the usurper of his throne.

Unsuccessful political union in World War 1. Most of the European continent were either allies or directly occupied, there were allies in parts of North Africa.

They were conquered in the Bolshevik revolution. Several attempts have been made to unite Europe.
None have achieved the unity present under the Roman empire during the reign of the Caesars. Various attempts to unite the nations included war, marriage between the royal houses, religion and the latest attempt at an economic union began after WWII under the Papacy. For a long period there was a successful but turbulent union with the church. But the nations notably Britain and France were constant enemies. There has never been a successful political union under one ruler since the Caesars.
All attempts have failed. Britain seems to be the country that continues to escape. Prophecy says that there never will be a successful political union under one ruler.

India India has been inhabited since about 70, , BC – one of the earliest locations to be permanently inhabited by hunter-gatherers who had emerged from Africa up to 10, years before. That hunter-gatherer culture continued in the rich, verdant and extremely fertile country of the sub-continent until the first permanent settlements emerged in around BC in the Indus river valley, such as at Mergarh in modern Baluchistan.
Those settlements developed into the Indus Valley culture, but while this provided an early flowering of civilisation in north-western India in the third millennium BC, its demise around BC left South Asia without an urban culture until small cities emerged in the east, in the Ganges valley and northern India.
During the later years of the Indus Valley culture, and that of its more northerly counterpart, the Bactria-Margiana Archaeological Complex BMAC , climate change was clearly having an affect. The rains were drying up and cities were gradually being abandoned. Sophisticated Bronze Age chariot-riding, cattle-herding Indo-Europeans from the north became more greatly integrated into this region and eventually took it over.
By BC, these new folk began to filter into India from the north-west, from the direction of modern Afghanistan , displacing or mixing with the native Elamo -Dravidian peoples. This particular branch of Indo-Europeans were the Indo-Aryans. The Indo-European word ‘arya’ meant the ‘civilised’ or ‘respectable’ according to general scholarly opinion the rather tainted ‘Aryan’ term has been replaced by modern scholars with the more accurate ‘Indo-Aryan’.
This word, added to a plural suffix, possibly -na, produced Aryana, which is how these people referred to themselves.
