Hello! My name is Kim and I'm a 15 year old girl from germany and this is my historical blog.
I'm a big fan of Napoleon and some other persons who are already dead. I also make historical costumes and draw stuff.
So that's me. I hope you enjoy my little blog. (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ

I agree with Lydia Bennet, gentlemen do look well in a blue coat!

Um, the Seven Years War ended in 1763 and the Endeavour set out in 1768. France and Britain weren’t at war at that time. The Source (which is Wikipedia, um, yeah) states that it was the Royal Navy which didn’t harm a French astronomer on his way to observe the Transit in 1761.

People, this is why you don’t trust anything you see on tumblr unless you can verify it yourself, or you’re absolutely sure that the person knows the subject they’re talking about (and even then verify it).
If a story sounds too good to be true (like an act of altruism for science during a war) it’s probably not true, or at best it’s only partially true.
There are sooo many posts on tumblr with hundreds or even thousands of notes on it, but which are complete and utter bs.
