    The Welsh Common Law was dramatically different from the English Common Law.
    Strongly opposed and ultimately abolished by the medieval English Church its key provisions were:
    • Equal inheritance across all children, regardless of parental marital status,
    • Protections for women in the form of harsh penalties for rape, domestic violence, and adultery,
    • Marriage as a matter of civil instead of church law,
    • Battered women could divorce their husbands and retained rights to their personhood across their entire lives,
    • Punishment for most offences in the form of fines instead of the imprisonment, dismemberment, and/or execution which were typical under the English Common Law, especially during medieval times.
    In 928 CE King Hywel Dda conferenced with the leading Welsh intellectuals at the time to formally record the Welsh Common Law as a single and widely published written book.

    Synesius of Cyrene meandered casually through the library at the Serapeum, its massive domed roof a reminder that this was a Greek, not Egyptian, architectural masterpiece. Every few yards he stopped and looked at the shelf labels near him. Finally, after about twenty minutes he saw the small figure of his mistress standing next to a distant shelf as she organized the scrolls upon it. Smiling, Synesius approached her with a reverent bow, “Salve, August Mistress!”

    The exciting true story of Egypt's most famous queen! Cleopatra Thea Philopator refused to do what she was told. In an age where patriarchy denied full citizenship to even the most elite of Roman women, Cleopatra ruled her Egypt determined to keep it independent and free from Roman control -- at any price necessary. Demonized as a simple seductress by Gaius Julius Caesar Octavianus (the future Caesar Augustus) and his political allies, Cleopatra VII proved herself the equal to three of the most powerful men of the Roman world: Gaius Julius Caesar, Marcus Antonius, and Octavian Caesar. Includes a detailed timeline, suggested reading list/bibliography, and a special Easter egg for science fiction fans.
