HISTORY MEME: 9 KINGS/QUEENS/EMPERORS | GEORGE V (3 JUNE 1865 -20 JANUARY 1936) & NICHOLAS II (18 MAY 1868 - 17 JULY 1918) &WILHELM II (27 JANUARY 1859 - 4 JUNE 1941)
This trio is most famously known because of two facts: they were cousins and, despite being bound by blood, they were unable to avert World War I. The European powers were willing to risk a war so they could secure their own interests. Wilhelm II, however, was never really liked due to his temper. As a baby he was brought into the world with a forceps delivery, causing him to have a handicapped left arm. Because of this he suffered from an inferiority complex which would follow him his entire life. Before the outbreak of the war a series of telegrams were sent between the tsar and the Kaiser, concerning the mobilisation of troops, but to no avail. When the Germans invaded Belgium, the British were dragged into the conflict as well. From that moment on the world was at war.
Nicholas II was shot, along with the rest of the Romanov family, during the Russian revolution. George V got very ill and administered euthanasia. Wilhelm II outlived his cousins and died in exile in the Netherlands.

A ‘Ring of Fire’ solar eclipse is a rare phenomenon that occurs when the moon’s orbit is at its apogee: the part of its orbit farthest away from the Earth. Because the moon is so far away, it seems smaller than normal to the human eye. The result is that the moon doesn’t entirely block out our view of the sun, but leaves an “annulus,” or ring of sunlight glowing around it. Hence the term  “annular” eclipse rather than a “total” eclipse.

Magic.
