The Cries of London

Unreal City, Under the brown fog of a winter dawn, A crowd flowed over London Bridge, so many I had not thought death had undone, so many. Sighs, short and infrequent, were exhaled, And each man fixed his eyes before his feet Flowed up the hill and down King William Street, To where St Mary Woolnoth kept the hours With a dead sound on the final stroke of nine.

-- T S Eliot 1922

England's Queen Mother: Part 2: Her Ancestral Tree
Posted on Jun 11, 2002 - 06:33 AM by Anonymous

Just as the Queen Mother's life spanned the entire last century of the second millennium, so her ancestral tree spans the entirety of the millennium itself. Her roots go back to the House of Atholl and David I of Scotland.This, the second article in our major series about a remarkable woman sets out this genealogy of a millennium. Here forebears included a number of colourful characters many of whom were involved in the dangerous politics of their times. Politics were not as treacherous in her own time of course, but they still provided this Queen of England with a number of major challenges.
