Saint Vladimir956-1015 Vladimir the Great" - Владимир Святославич - "Vladimir Sviatoslavich, Grand Prince of Kiev, Czar of Russia" - Vladimir was the son of Svjatoslav I Igorjevitch, grand duke of Kiev, and Predslava. When his father was killed in 972 he was a contender for the rule of Kiev, together with his elder two brothers. The eldest brother Jaropolk I Svjatoslavitsch was already established in Kiev, and he disposed of the middle brother Oleg and forced Vladimir to flee the country. Vladimir went from Novgorod to Scandinavia, from where he returned with an army of Varangians. He attacked and killed Jaropolk and in doing so became the sole ruler of Rus. In his early years as ruler he was brutal, bloodthirsty and dissolute. By his first wife Ragneda of Polatsk, whom he abducted before killing her parents and two brothers, he had three sons and two daughters; by a Greek woman he fathered one son; by a Czech woman one son; two more sons by a different mother; and by a Bulgarian woman two more sons. He was said to have had three hundred concubines at Vyshegorod, three hundred at Belgorod, and two hundred at Berestovo. At the beginning of his long reign he continued attacking the Byzantine empire... around 988 he adopted Christianity for himself and his people. He also took as his third wife Anna Porphyrogenita, the sister of the Byzantine emperors Basilus II and Constantine VIII. However, the Pechenegs continued to harass him and he had to fight them until the end of his reign. After his conversion Vladimir became a changed man; he became mild towards criminals, generous to the poor and supported the Greek missionaries. This led later generations to look on Vladimir and his grandmother Olga as the first-born of the new Christian people of Russia and her borderland. They were both esteemed as saints and St. Vladimir became the subject of a cycle of folklore and heroic poems." [24]30th Gen. Grandfather.

Magna Carta Surety Barons

Ancestor (26xR) King John "lost the Duchy of Normandy to [his 3rd cousin], ancestor King Philippe II of France, which resulted in the collapse of most of the Angevin Empire and contributed to the subsequent growth in power of the Capetian dynasty, founded by [ancestor] Hugues I, during the 13th century." [46]

Evil King John also imprisoned, then fatally poisoned, his 4th cousin (my 2nd cousin), wife of (his 5th cousin, my Great-Grand Uncle, 25xR) Geoffrey FitzGeoffrey de Mandeville, the hapless "Maid Marian" of myth and lore, for rebuffing his advances.

At least seven ancestors rebelled against King John, becoming known as Magna Carta Surety Barons.

Catherine was stripped of her title as queen within 16 months, in November 1541. She was beheaded three months later, on the grounds of treason for committing adultery while married to the King... Catherine was a daughter of Lord Edmund Howard (c. 1478 – 1539) and Joyce Culpeper (c. 1480 – c. 1528). Her father's sister, Elizabeth Howard, was the mother of Anne Boleyn. Therefore, Catherine Howard was the first cousin of Anne Boleyn, and Catherine Howard and Anne's daughter, Lady Elizabeth (later Queen Elizabeth I), were first cousins once removed... her final words were, 'I die a Queen, but I would rather have died the wife of Culpeper,' [referring to her cousin, with whom she was accused, Thomas."

Dr. H.

But it was his service with the Communist Eighth Route Army (Ba Lu Jun) during the Second Sino-Japanese War that would earn him enduring acclaim. Dr. Bethune effectively brought modern medicine to rural China... selfless commitment to the Chinese people made such an impression on Mao Zedong that generations of Chinese students were required to memorise the Chairman's eulogy to him. The Norman Bethune Medal is the highest medical honour in China, bestowed by the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Personnel of China, to recognize an individual's outstanding contribution, heroic spirit and great humanitarianism in the medical field... '" [135] "Mao Zedong published his famous text, 'In memory of Norman Bethune', calling on the Chinese people to assimilate Bethune's spirit: 'utter devotion to others without any thought of self.'

Red Sky Métis Independent Nation

"History of the Métis People of Lake Superior Red Sky Métis Independent Nation’s™ ancestry can be dated back to as early as 1506, when Captain Jehan Denys landed in Newfoundland. Denys was a French sailor, captain, an expert navigator and voyager from Honfleur, Normandy. Connected to Montreal and to the fur trade, these explorers married aboriginal women establishing a new generation of Canadians that embraced the cultures of both worlds. By the 1600’s, they had established permanent settlements along the shores of Lake Superior that provided a foundation for the North West Company and, later, the Hudson’s Bay Company trading routes.

Today RSMIN people possess a strong sense of shared identity. Approximately 8,000 Red Sky Métis Independent Nation citizens reside in communities throughout the Robinson-Superior Treaty area as well as throughout Canada and the World. The RSMIN Community is committed to the preservation of history, traditions and practices. Our history and culture is celebrated in the traditions and songs of the Great Rendezvous, chronicled in the annals of the North West Company and the Hudson’s Bay Company and occupies an uncontested, pre-eminent position in the historical record of the founding of Thunder Bay, Gateway to the West.

It unites the traditions of the people of New France and English Canada with that of our Aboriginal mothers into a distinct and vibrant Métis culture. We are the voice of the Métis people of the Red Sky Métis Independent Nation whose ancestors, the Coureurs de Bois, the first colonists – the French Voyageurs, settled this area and brought Canada to the attention of the World as a land of unsurpassed natural wealth and unparalleled opportunity."[154]

A year along this 'road less taken' with native Grandmothers and Voyageurs, through Frankish Kings to the Roman Empire, was a journey begun in homage to my dying mother Janet Klein.

Every step to discovering our shared human roots has been a revelation made possible by the careful research of so many others. Thank you, especially, to cousin Ed Hass of Ontario, Canada for a well-laid path to this 'Yellow Brick Road". The research of Yves Drolet of Montreal, Canada, and of David B. Audcent and Geoffrey Audcent of England has been invaluable.

Thank you, too, for the wondrous work of the caring Wiki volunteers that makes this platform possible.

Hi Sunny, I see you have lots of experience. I was wondering if you can take a peek into whether I have any mix-ups or not. I am curious if these are two different sets of Etienne & Marguerite within the same family at different generations (aunt & uncle Denys_de_laronde-7 to Longdo-10)? I have a feeling there is possibly some sort of mix up here. Thanks for all your assistance! ~Lynn Tober-Rice

Thanks for the merge notice re Mary-Ann Perrett (Hurlstone-95). This is the second merge notice I have received within 24 hours. The matching at creation time must be deficient, but with such an enormous database, it still does a wonderful job.

Hi! Because Dick Brennan has the notable tag he shows up on my To Do list, I am updating the notables tags so notable profiles starts to get sub categorized (makes them easier to find, maintain and be cared for). But he can belong to more than just one project, maybe the Irish Roots project? There seems to be missing some information on his Irish ancestry.
