That solves that problem. So Georgia in the CIS is short for Saint
George's Land, I always wondered how that adapted from Sakartvelo!

Mary, Queen of Scots, was a Stuart, the daughter of James V and Mary of
Guise, so there she would be queen of England and Scotland, though I would
doubt that her erratic behaviour would be tolerated by the twin
parliaments. She was no Elizabeth or even a Bloody Mary.
As for what happened to the Tudor family - that depends on whether a Owen
Tudor married Catherine, the widow of Henry V. The Tudors *there* deserve

That puts an interesting spin on history!
While we are about it I should keep people abreast of thoughts and
suggestions to keep this list turning over:
The Union of the Kernow Kingdoms and Cambria pura (Kemr byr) occured in 829
when the united forces of the Kernowmen and the Chomro routed Ethelfirth of
Wessex. (*Here* he defeated a combined army of Celts and Vikings.)
*There* Owain Glyndwr is remembered as the Father of the Cambrian Senate -
think Simon de Montford from a hundred years earlier *here*. This is
subject to research on the earlier independant princes of Wales *here*.
Padraic has suggested to me that the grammar needs a description on
reflexive nouns in Brithenig. Suggestions welcome.
We have also been discussing the role of the Cos Nustr/Chois Nustoer in
Kemrese society - but I'll let him speak on that.
