The Head of King Henry IV of France was found preserved in an attic in 2010

The Head of King Henry IV of France was found preserved in an attic in 2010.

It might seem a little strange that the head of a king was in the attic of a tax collector, instead of located on his buried body. The explanation is no less strange.
King Henry IV ruled France from 1589 to his death in 1610. Many attempts had been made on his life as king. One such attempt left him with a gash across his upper lip.
While in Paris in 1610, his carriage was stopped in the congested streets and he was assassinated. It was expected for him to be buried at the Basilica of St. Denis, north of Paris, where nearly every French king had been buried since 900 AD.
His body was embalmed and interred with the kings before him, and was left alone for almost two centuries. In 1793, during the French Revolution, a number of unusual decrees were issued (such as changing calendars and clocks).
One of these ordered the destruction of all royal tombs, including the one Henry IV was in. A mob tore through the crypt and pulled apart the royal corpses. They were carried outside and had quicklime poured over them to make them decompose faster.
As a result, most of the bones at St. Denis were lost. For a while, it was thought that no royal remains survived the French Revolution, but rumors continued to creep up. In 1919, the head of Henry IV was found and sold at an auction. Joseph-Emile Bourdais, the photographer who purchased it, could not convince any museums it was authentic.
When Joseph-Emile died, his widow then sold the head in 1955 to a tax collector named Jacques Bellanger. There the head remained until a journalist looked at it in 2010, and it was confirmed to be that of Henry IV.

10 Things to Give up to Move Forward


For those girls who says
Have you met all the guys in the world?
No You Haven't

There are guys out there, who care about  you,
are madly  in love with you, will  treat you right,
but you're too pushing them into  FRIEND ZONE.
And when that one guy  screws you over,
you  either blame  love,


either you start believing that all guys are jerks.

They're not. Love doesn't walk away, people do.

And so what if one jerk broke your heart,

I PROMISE you, that not every single guy will Open your eyes,
and  realize that there are guys who want you


don't  go after you before you're too busy chasing the bad boys.

you expect to fall in love that way they do in movies.
Where it's love at first sight, or
where the guy throws rose petals every where his girlfriend steps.

That's not reality.
What Reality is that

He can't think about you 24/7,
he can't open every door for you, hold your bag all the time,
text you goodnight and good morning every day,
he's not going to be perfect. And if you expect him to be perfect,
then it's you who is not ready to be in a relationship.

So before you go on and say,"all guys are the same"
just remember,
that many people in the future will break
your heart too but one day you'll find
the guy who was worth all those heartbreaks.
The guy who will treat you right,
he might not throw rose petals everywhere you step,
but he'll hold your hand and be by your side through the hardest times...
