Subject: RE: Folklore: Rumpelstiltskin, thousands of years old?
Ann, it is amazing just how inter-related the royalty/aristocracy of Europe was/is. John of Gaunt, for example, as portrayed in Shakespeare, but Gaunt is Gwent, and his descendants ruled Spain and if I am right played a part in the 1492 expulsions. And one supposes they might have taken a certain number of court entertainers with them from place to place?
