[[History of Chess Pieces|http://library.thinkquest.org/C001348/international/pieces/his_pieces_en.html]]

This page is hard to load, so I'll put the relevant-to-me info here:

King:  why so important and yet so weak?

"While the old Indians invented chess, they designed a figure for each arm of the service. The king figure corresponded to the Indian emperor, the 'Schah in Schah'. This "King of kings" was a wise ruler and not a warrior; the battles were fought by the generals. An empire was defeated when the emperor was captured. That is why a game can only be won when the enemy king is captured. This fault made chess unique. He is too slow to leap himself to safety. That is why castling was set in the 16th century."

-began among the Persians as male adviser, called "Firzan", to the King.
-"could move one field diagonally and served for the safety of the king. The figure was taken over by the Arabs and was changed very much. Later, the Europeans called the figure "Fers", derived from "Firzan". Because they did not know the meaning of the word "Fers", they interpreted the figure as queen, because she is standing beside the king.

"The queen won extreme amounts of power through the development of the game in the 15th century. She became the most powerful figure on the board, even more powerful than the rooks and the king. It is still doubtful why the Spaniards, who developed the game further, have given so much power to the queen. Maybe they were inspired by the Spanish queen Isabella, the virgin of Orleans (Joan of Arc) or the holy Virgin Mary."

-started as a war carriage called a "rukh"
"By the year 1527 Vida, bishop of Albay, published a poem about a chess game between "Apollo" and "Mercury". The rooks were fortifications on the back of an elephant. The European chess players took over the description. Finally they left out the elephant for the normal use."

-started as "an armed attendant who sat on the back of an elephant. The Arabs called this figure "al-fil", which means "elephant". The problem was that in Central Europe elephants were not known, so they could not recognize the figure. The bishops were interpreted differently by the different nations. That is why the bishop is a "Läufer" (runner) in Germany, a "fou" (fool) in France and a "alfiere" (standard-bearer) in Italy.

"The bishop also profited by the development of chess in the 15th century. At first he could jump one field diagonally. Later the jump was abolished and he could move diagonally as far as he wanted."

-began with his special jump; represented as a mounted warrior

"In the Middle Ages monks tried to represent the pawns as citizens. The first pawn (above the left rook) was an agricultural worker, the second a farrier, the third a weaver, the fourth a businessman, the fifth a doctor, the sixth an innkeeper, the seventh a policeman and the eighth a gambler."
* Brother Cosmin's cassock

Inner Cassocks (Anterri):
In the Greek Cassock Style (Images #2 & #3), cassocks come with a back placket and tie that ties around the waist, pockets, non-functioning cuffs, moderate stiffening in collar and hip pockets. In lieu of pockets, you can choose “hand pass-thru” to pants pocket slits rather than full pockets when ordering. Inner Cassocks (Anterri) in the Russian style (#5 below) comes with functioning cuffs, moderate stiffening in collar, and hip pockets. It has a straight back and no waist tie. In lieu of pockets, you can choose “hand pass thru” to pants pocket slits rather than full pockets when ordering. Inner Cassock (Anterri) #6 is a universal Cassock style which can be worn in both the Russian and Greek tradition. It has a back placket like image #3 above it.

Outer Cassocks (Exorasson):Outer Cassocks (Exorasson) are available in two styles: Greek style (image #1) and the Russian style (image #4). The Greek Style Exorasson fastens at the neck only with a hook and eye closure. The Russian Style exorassson fastens with two buttons at the neck and two buttons at the waist.

I'm specifically looking for people who disappeared in transit somewhere, preferably over the ocean.

So far I have:

*Amelia Earhart

*Glenn Miller
yes, that Glenn Miller: "While travelling to entertain U.S. troops in France during World War II, Miller's plane disappeared in bad weather. His body was never found."

*[[Archduke John Salvator of Austria|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archduke_John_Salvator_of_Austria]]: "John Salvator married Milly Stubel, an opera dancer in a London registry office and after purchasing a ship called the Santa Margareta he and his wife sailed for South America. In February 1890 he set off from Montevideo heading for Valparaíso in Chile.[6] He was never heard from again and his ship is believed to have been lost of Cape Horn though rumours persisted that he survived.[1]

He was officially declared dead in 1911."

*[[Antoine de Saint Exupéry|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antoine_de_Saint_Exup%C3%A9ry#Disappearance_in_flight]] - while he was probably indeed shot down during the war (WWII), much of the evidence is circumstantial.  Pieces of the plane.  A bracelet?  What if he shows up in France in a beat-up, shot-up plane?

*[[John Wise, balloonist|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Wise_%28balloonist%29#Disappearance]] - "On 28 September 1879, aged 71, he disappeared with a passenger on a trip in high winds from East St. Louis, Illinois over Lake Michigan. No trace of Wise, the passenger or the balloon have ever been found. In 44 years, Wise had made 463 ascents."

*[[Theodosia Burr Alston|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theodosia_Burr_Alston]] - Aaron Burr's daughter

*[[Roald Amundsen|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roald_Amundsen#Disappearance_and_death]] - first person to reach both North and South poles, may be found in my story thanks to global warming!!

*[[Ettore Majorana|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ettore_Majorana]]
"Ettore Majorana (5 August 1906, Catania, Sicily, Italy – 27 March 1938 presumed dead) was an Italian theoretical physicist who began promising work on neutrino masses. He disappeared suddenly in mysterious circumstances."

*[[Michigan Triangle|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Michigan_Triangle]]

*[[The White Bird|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_White_Bird]]
"was a French biplane which disappeared in 1927, during an attempt to make the first non-stop transatlantic flight from Paris to New York. The aircraft was flown by French aviation warheroes Charles Nungesser and François Coli, who were attempting to win the $25,000 Orteig Prize for the flight, but the plane disappeared after its May 8 takeoff from Paris. Two weeks later, Charles Lindbergh successfully made the New York–Paris journey and claimed the prize, flying The Spirit of St. Louis.

The disappearance of The White Bird is considered one of the great mysteries in the history of aviation.[1] Many rumors circulated about the fate of the plane and crew, with mainstream opinion being that the aircraft was probably lost in a squall over the Atlantic; however modern investigations imply that the plane may have reached Newfoundland or possibly crashed in Maine."
The setting for //The Herbalist's Apprentice// is 1485 Transylvania... which is in Romania, hence Fauxmania.

My cousin's wife is from Romania, which piqued my interest in the area; to the point where I was going to name the main character of //THA// after her (Reluca; however, our nickname for Reluca is Rella, and I didn't want to have any hints of Cinderella in my story, as it's a retelling of "The Twelve Dancing Princesses" and I don't want any other fairy tales creeping in, and I don't want to use the nickname Luca.  My character is CLEARLY an "R" character.  So, she's Reveka or Reva).

Of course, having a few Romanian meals with my cousins and looking at their pictures and hearing her stories is not enough, and I've had to do quite a bit of research to achieve Fauxmania.  There is a shocking lack of information available in English.

*[[Postcards from Romania|http://www.aboutromania.com/transylvania48.html]]
"Nowhere else in Europe do folk costumes persist so strongly, the men wearing tiny clop straw hats and medieval rawhide galoshes or felt boots with thongs, and the women wearing boldy striped catrinita apron with cloth from the water-powered fulling mills, and embroidering intricate designs on the wide sleeved cotton blouses worn by both sexes..."
*[[Maktaaq|http://www.maktaaq.com/]] is Canadian Romanian, and getting her perspective on how the rest of the world views Romania is really good (and interesting).  Medieval Romania is a bit hard to get a handle on-my setting superstructure should make mention of the Ottoman Empire, but I'm not sure how-but at least I can get a modern handle on things.  It's a start.  Maktaaq makes my day by referring to things like [[Fortified Transylvanian Churches|http://www.fortified-churches.com/]].  What a concept!!

I briefly mentioned Gypsies in draft one, since Reveka needs a lizard skin, and she thought Gypsies might be able to get her one.  (Using that term for recognizability/period-esque commonality).  HOWEVER...  yikes!  Shortly after the Roma people arrived in the Balkans, they were enslaved, particularly in Wallachia and Moldavia, by large landowners.  Uhm.  So, likely, if Prince Vasile were a real landowner of Romania and not a sovereign of Fauxmania, he would have had Roma slaves working for him.  This is way too big to fit in my book in any sensitive way.  Hm.

"For each case she uses a bottle filled with water from three holy wells, a glass of honey and an item of clothing from the person who is to be cured.

To the holy water bottle she adds a piece of frankincense and some dried sweet basil.

Margareta's bottle of holy water, and the nine-times married knife
The married knife is dipped in the holy water
With all these she uses a nine-times married knife - secretly hidden by nine brides into their grooms' pockets during the wedding ceremony.

Since it won't do any harm, Margareta agrees to show me what she can do by casting away any evil from her neighbour: "O, big water, O, big lady, I'm praying for you and I worship you How you wash away all rubbish, all dirt, Wash Ioana too from all evils, All horrors, all doings, all spells As she ate and as she drank."

I believe this means that we need to add 9 days onto the reckoning of any dates.  So...  June 28th, which is the astronomical starting point of the book, would be recorded as June 19th.  Not that it matters.

I love this paragraph: the truth about willow bark tea:
"One curious exception is that of Willow bark, a source of salicylic acid. One can hardly turn around or stub one's toe in a fantasy novel without being offered willow-bark tea. (For reasons unknown, fantasy willow-bark tea, unlike its modern NSAID equivalents in real life, can be drunk as much as needed without stomach effects or increasing bleeding in wounds.) While the Egyptians and Hippocrates appear to have suggested willow bark for pain, it drops out of the written medicinal record after that, until 1763, when Reverend Edmund Stone tried powdered willow bark for fevers and arthritis. Allegedly, it was the theory of humors that led him to do so, since willows grow in the same damp low-lying places that are associated with fevers and arthritis. Oddly enough, however, meadowsweet, another source of salicin, is mentioned by medieval and early modern herbalists for fevers, though other herbs of varying usefulness such as camomile and mints were prescribed for fevers and agues in written works."

Mills are good settings.  I decided this back when my husband and I went on a tour of an oat mill in Scotland on our honeymoon.  I learned a lot that day that I promptly forgot, but the sounds, sights, smells and OH YEAH THE SOUNDS stay with me.  (It's very loud in a mill.)  That and the fact that apple trees are often planted around mills because applewood makes good gears.  Plus, cider.

[[A child's guide to mills | http://www.schoolsliaison.org.uk/kids/sarehole/sarehole.htm]] - clear, comprehensible, and interactive!  The top room of a mill is called a garner!  Which is exactly the thing I needed to know when I went looking.

Before knitting, there was netting, or [[Nalebinding|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naalebinding]].

*[[Nalebinding Samples|http://www.cs.vassar.edu/~capriest/nalebind.html]]
*[[A very good Nalbinding page|http://www.geocities.com/sigridkitty/index.html]]

Nalebinding creates warmer/thicker clothing than knitting, is performed with one needle, and can be used with short lengths of yarn.  It predates knitting, and creates clothes that look knitted.  It also looks a teeny bit like chainmail.  The Norse name does not mean it is a Norse pursuit.

Reveka didn't meet her father until she was eleven years old, when he came to collect her from the nuns who raised her after her mother's death.  Reveka's father has left the army and is now Prince Vasile's new gardener.  When she goes to live with her father at the prince's palace, she also finds work, as the herbalist's apprentice.  One of her new duties is to select and prepare the herbs for the prince's daughters' baths every morning.  The princesses are under a curse, one that causes them to spend each night dancing, so that their slippers are worn through every morning.

Reveka, confronted with this puzzle, decides to take a hand.

Excellent essay: [[beyond the herbwife|http://www.gallowglass.org/jadwiga/herbs/Beyond_herbwife.html]] discusses the role of the herbwife in fantasy literature, the possibility of accusations of witchcraft on herbwives (//Malleus Maleficarum// is pretty lenient in regards to herbwives, because their power comes from a known and natural source, unlike witches' unseen source of the devil)....

The most ridiculous, redunderful sentence:
"The whole plant is medicinal as alterative, antibacterial, antipyretic, antiseptic, antispasmodic, astringent, carminative, diuretic, febrifuge, hypotensive, stomachic, styptic, tonic, vermifuge and vulnerary."
In turn: promotes general good health, kills bacteria, reduces fever, prevents infection (through killing germs), relieves spasms, constricts tissues and stops blood flow, induces the expulsion of gas from intestines, induces peeing, reduces fever (again), reduces blood pressure, stimulates digestion, stops blood flow (almost the same as astringent), refreshes, kills worms, and heals wounds.


OED sez: 1. "Originally, a room in a house in which a still was kept for the distillation of perfumes and cordials."   (Later ameliorated/changed to a place where cakes/tea prepped.  A pantry of sorts.)

Dates from 1710, earliest: " C. FIENNES Diary (1888) 299 On one side is a building, a summer parlour for a still room."  Hyphenated form by 1810.

Of interest: "1858 THACKERAY Virgin. xlv, A hundred years ago, every lady in the country had her still-room, and her medicine-chest, her pills, powders, potions, for all the village round."


apparatus for distillation...  contains an enclosed thingie for the evaporation, for which older terms: almebic, retort.  Modern: boiler.

OED sez: "1562 W. BULLEIN Bulwarke, Bk. Simples (1579) 85b, A horned Still. Bagpipe Still... Pelican Still. 1563 T. GALE Antidot. II. 87 Then styll them in a common styll, and keepe thys water to your vse. 1577 B. GOOGE Heresbach's Husb.
