From left that’s St. Paul, St. John the Evangelist, St. Augustine and Mary Magdeline. I thought that this was also by Poussin because the ladies look the same to me. They probably also look like the “Sabines” and I’ll be going to look for copies of those pictures sometime soon too because they seem to apply to this situation that I’m in and I suspect that I guess that it must really come from that 1520-75 historical figure of Joseph “Lepanto” Nasi, that he got the ovaries for a girl and mass-reproduced this type of “product-people” that I and many others are from, and my part of this line of people is given to this cannibalism-world and its Armageddon-world-takeover old old demented child’s old idea.This is usually said to bImage result for public domain images of leonardo da vinci's isabella d'este

Coburg and Gotha) were siblings. Leopold arranged for Victoria’s mother to invite her Coburg relatives to visit her in May 1836, with the purpose of introducing Victoria to Albert.[25] William IV, however, disapproved of any match with the Coburgs, and instead favoured the suit of Prince Alexander of the Netherlands, second son of the Prince of Orange.[26] Victoria was aware of the various matrimonial plans and critically appraised a parade of eligible princes.[27]According to her diary, she enjoyed Albert’s company from the beginning. After the visit she wrote, “[Albert] is extremely handsome; his hair is about the same colour as mine; his eyes are large and blue, and he has a beautiful nose and a very sweet mouth with fine teeth; but the charm of his countenance is his expression, which is most delightful.”[28] Alexander, on the other hand, was “very plain”.[29]Victoria wrote to her uncle Leopold, whom Victoria considered her “best and kindest adviser”,[30] to thank him “for the prospect of great happiness you have contributed to give me, in the person of dear Albert … He possesses every quality that could be desired to render me perfectly happy. He is so sensible, so kind, and so good, and so amiable too. He has besides the most pleasing and delightful exterior and appearance you can possibly see.”[31] However at 17, Victoria, though interested in Albert, was not yet ready to marry. The parties did not undertake a formal engagement, but assumed that the match would take place in due time.[32]

Victoria turned 18 on 24 May 1837, and a regency was avoided. Less than a month later, on 20 June 1837, William IV died at the age of 71, and Victoria became Queen of the United Kingdom.[33] In her diary she wrote, “I was awoke at 6 o’clock by Mamma, who told me the Archbishop of Canterbury and Lord Conyngham were here and wished to see me. I got out of bed and went into my sitting-room (only in my dressing gown) and alone, and saw them. Lord Conyngham then acquainted me that my poor Uncle, the King, was no more, and had expired at 12 minutes past 2 this morning, and consequently that I am Queen.”[34] Official documents prepared on the first day of her reign described her as Alexandrina Victoria, but the first name was withdrawn at her own wish and not used again.[35]

Since 1714, Britain had shared a monarch with Hanover in Germany, but under Salic law women were excluded from the Hanoverian succession. While Victoria inherited all the British dominions, Hanover passed instead to her father’s younger brother, her unpopular uncle the Duke of Cumberland and Teviotdale, who became King of Hanover. He was her heir presumptive until she married and had a child.[36]

At the time of her accession, the government was led by the Whig prime minister Lord Melbourne, who at once became a powerful influence on the politically inexperienced Queen, who relied on him for advice.[37] Charles Greville supposed that the widowed and childless Melbourne was “passionately fond of her as he might be of his daughter if he had one”, and Victoria probably saw him as a father figure.[38] Her coronation took place on 28 June 1838 at Westminster Abbey. Over 400,000 visitors came to London for the celebrations.[39] She became the first sovereign to take up residence at Buckingham Palace[40] and inherited the revenues of the duchies of Lancaster and Cornwall as well as being granted a civil list allowance of £385,000 per year. Financially prudent, she paid off her father’s debts.[41]

At the start of her reign Victoria was popular,[42] but her reputation suffered in an 1839 court intrigue when one of her mother’s ladies-in-waiting, Lady Flora Hastings, developed an abdominal growth that was widely rumoured to be an out-of-wedlock pregnancy by Sir John Conroy.[43] Victoria believed the rumours.[44] She hated Conroy, and despised “that odious Lady Flora”,[45] because she had conspired with Conroy and the Duchess of Kent in the Kensington System.[46] At first, Lady Flora refused to submit to a naked medical examination, until in mid-February she eventually agreed, and was found to be a virgin.[47] Conroy, the Hastings family and the opposition Tories organised a press campaign implicating the Queen in the spreading of false rumours about Lady Flora.[48] When Lady Flora died in July, the post-mortem revealed a large tumour on her liver that had distended her abdomen.[49] At public appearances, Victoria was hissed and jeered as “Mrs. Melbourne”.[50]

In 1839, Melbourne resigned after Radicals and Tories (both of whom Victoria detested) voted against a bill to suspend the constitution of Jamaica. The bill removed political power from plantation owners who were resisting measures associated with the abolition of slavery.[51] The Queen commissioned a Tory, Sir Robert Peel, to form a new ministry. At the time, it was customary for the prime minister to appoint members of the Royal Household, who were usually his political allies and their spouses. Many of the Queen’s ladies of the bedchamberwere wives of Whigs, and Peel expected to replace them with wives of Tories. In what became known as the bedchamber crisis, Victoria, advised by Melbourne, objected to their removal. Peel refused to govern under the restrictions imposed by the Queen, and consequently resigned his commission, allowing Melbourne to return to office.[52]

Ponce de Leon is a whole new subject and seems specifically interconnected with everything, the French Connection business winding up in the Bronx Puerto Rican neighborhood I was growing up in and him having been governor of Puerto Rico before he went looking for that “Fountain of Youth” and I suspect that that really translates to his looking for a nice place to make plantations for “growing” people from disembodied ovaries, and there are a few more new connections even to do with the Florence Sabin project, that that’s leading back to the area near Leon. Then she’s even connected to this coincidentally down below:

(This is connected to how a “Merchant” stole ovaries and made the products into like an “All the world’s a stage” acting troupe that I’m now stranded in as at the bottom of the system’s LURE that’s going to wind up in TOTAL PLANET EXTINCTION. I’ll be trying to describe it in the Queen Victoria page under the Stereotypes section.)

Nicolas Poussin - Rebecca at the Well c. 1648Eliezer and Rebecca at the Well, 1648, by Poussin. I think that that’s like an ancestor of mine right above *l* there,

that it looks like he’s offering some “role-part” to the lady on the right and this girl kneeling with the water on the left is saying, Ooh let me, I’ll do that, volunteering for whatever it was/is while the other girl got selected, and that that comes down to this “jealousy” theme and accusation that’s the “Armageddon Program’s” main gimmick, is the cover-story for all this invisible torture onto myself, jealousy that the other girl got the good role-part, but I’m trying to explain that the whole group is likely “grown” from disembodied ovary/-ies stolen from our common ancestor, likely by this mythical-seeming “Joseph Nasi” historical character, 1520-1575 or so, and that that’s also likely connected to the Trojan “war” business, which is all “gimmick.” After all these years I’m finally having to use this vulgar descriptive phrase for this whole system, that it’s all “lies and doo-doo” that I’ve been avoiding that phrase all these years because it’s terrible to have to type the phrase, you can get by with saying that in a comment or in a diary-jot to yourself or hand-written letter to a friend but to say it to a stranger and in typing really sounds bad but it’s all that the system comes down to being, just fabricated lies and doo-doo basis of everything, the Autists could not leave excrement alone, they smeared it everywhere till the Old World people couldn’t stand to have them around anymore and the food was running low and then the Autists and their “Neanderthal” friends I think “discovered” this other kind of people like that guy in the white turban there on Japan or just one of its islands and in those primitive-type communications the Autists fabricated all kinds of stories about supposed wrongs the Old World invasion-victims had allegedly done to their kind, and got the “hicks” from the Japanese seclusion-development to go to war with themselves and their other friends to against the mainland peoples and then this ovary-thieving to “grow” people got developed and I think my ancestor might have been that kneeling girl as they have me with this “Armageddon Show/Program” that has nothing to do with me or reality all around me all these years; etc., I have to sign off now, 10/26/17.

This is Raphael (Sanzio’s) Ecstasy of St. Cecilia, c. 1516

From left that’s St. Paul, St. John the Evangelist, St. Augustine and Mary Magdeline. I thought that this was also by Poussin because the ladies look the same to me. They probably also look like the “Sabines” and I’ll be going to look for copies of those pictures sometime soon too because they seem to apply to this situation that I’m in and I suspect that I guess that it must really come from that 1520-75 historical figure of Joseph “Lepanto” Nasi, that he got the ovaries for a girl and mass-reproduced this type of “product-people” that I and many others are from, and my part of this line of people is given to this cannibalism-world and its Armageddon-world-takeover old old demented child’s old idea.This is usually said to be a medal of the “Woman Who Defied Kings,” Dona Gracia Mendez, but here it says that it’s more likely of her niece, this girl “La Chica.”

I joke that the girl kneeling on the front left of the Poussin’s Eliezer and Rebecca is my ancestor beg-volunteering for the chance to play the role while the chosen girl’s line because the “Julie” star of this Armageddon Program. Then or before that those 2 types were the St. Cecilia and Mary Magdeline of the Raphael. Maybe before that had been the medal of this girls whose ovaries they all might have been “grown” from.

QUEEN VICTORIA RECEIVING THE NEWS OF HER ACCESSION TO THE THRONE, JUNE 20, 1837 From the picture by H. T. Wells, R.A., at Buckingham Palace Frontispiece, Vol. I. QUEEN VICTORIA RECEIVING THE NEWS OF HER ACCESSION TO THE THRONE, JUNE 20, 1837

QUEEN VICTORIA RECEIVING THE NEWS OF HER ACCESSION TO THE THRONE, JUNE 20, 1837

Now I’m having a difficulty with this noticing finally that Allen Ginsberg’s old girlfriend that had committed suicide had done so 2 days after the “French Connection” -bust near me in the Bronx had happened. She jumped out of a window in the part of Manhattan that’s near the Bronx but it doesn’t look connected to the bust-area but there is almost surely some sort of a connection between the 2 incidents because the girl turns out to look like a sister to Ginsberg, that they must have gone into a child-raising endeavor together, underworld-raising a bunch of mass-reproduced offspring and there hasn’t been any sign of a connection between Ginsberg and the French Connection or jewelry-store robberies that the Fucas had connection to, but there’s so likely to be the same-underworld scam to this whole “Armageddon” -making business that I’m trapped underneath of, so I’m also trying to look into the newspaper articles from when Elise Cowen jumped from her parent’s Washington Heights apartment window on February 27, 1962, a Tuesday I think I read that that was. I suspect it was a cover story for her disappearance so she could go live underground and raise them full-time. It’s said that she’d had a hysterectomy in San Francisco that I’d have to try to look into also.

is’s some duplications:)
