The stoning of Saint Etienne. Is the first painting of Dutch artist Rembrandt, painted in 1625 at the age of 19. This work is inspired by the martyrdon of Saint Stephen which is recounted in acts 7. 

St Etienne was a young deacon in Jerusalem and by the leadership of Saul-Tarsus and 25 others or so Saint-Etienne was condemned. Saul-Tarsus is Paul the Apostle who was later christianized and followed Jesus. His birth is 5 A.D. to 67 A.D. He spread the Gospel through Asia and Roman Territories. He was a Roman Citizen of Jewish heritage and was part of a group dedicated to violently persecuting the early Jewish Christianity in Israel when he was known as Saul. more of Paul the Apostle can be found at wikipedia.

Marcella is an Italian given name, the feminine version of Marcello (Mark in English). Marcella maens warlike, martial, and strong. It could also mean 'young warrior'. The origin of the name Marcella is latin.

Latin is an Italic language originally spoken in Latium and Ancient Rome. It and Ancient Greek derive from Ancient Proto-Indo-European language. Latin has been, and currently is, used in the process of new word production in modern languages from many different families including English. 

Latin and its (daughter Romance language as far as it is described) are the only surviving branch of the Italic language family. Other branches, known as Italic languages, are attested in documents surviving from early Italy, but were assimilated during the Roman Republic. The one possible exception is Venetic, the language of the people who settled Venetia, who in Roman times spoke their language in parallel with Latin.

Veneto ~ is one of the 20 regions of Italy. It had been for a millemium an independent state, known as the Venetian Republic, and the region was annexed to Italy in 1866 after the brief Austrian and French rule. It's capital is Venice, which for a long period ruled one of the vastest and richest maritime republics and trade empires in the world. The inhabitants of Veneto Latin Venetia are considered by Italians as "the people" since they as a people refuse to subsume within the notion of 'Italian' ...wikipedia.com _---...---_ Perhaps as a people of Veneto they were once called Venetians but that may be rude since they were of most invested with other personage and thus how the history will reveal through Anciently DeLancey.

Saint Marcella ~ 325-410 She had a lifestyle of abstinence in Ancient Rome. After her husband's early death, she decided to devote the rest of her life to charity, prayer, and mortification of the flesh. When the Goths invaded in 410, she was brutalized, and died from her injuries. She knew well saint Paula and Saint Jerome, and she was called by him as "the glory of the ladies of Cadereyta".

8:52 P.M. E.S.T. 12-5-2010 The Art of Government is true in what we do this has  been going on throughout time. Although some portions of a government may not have the quality that others seek, this again is a form of art. Art is A Rightious Togetherness. In the beginning Governing had been something that just had to be. Infact in order to make a decision it had to be somewhat governed. A smile was a lesson as well as eating, walking and perhaps the dance. These terms were not even used long ago. This brings another form  of Artistic Governing to the palete. Art for me is considered number one in the respected  field of perception it creates, it allows, and is agreed upon. This now respectfully is somewhat of a reason or right doing, putting an ing at the  end of reason allows it to perhaps carry-on. This reasoning now in a rightious degree brings talent or even by now tolerance or could it be togetherness one of which will be in order. My-self I would choose to have talent to express a reasoning to create togetherness as to allow it to carry-on. Here we go with Art Economics History before our time. This reasoning will allow me to describe what Art Economics History can do in the future. This inventory  that I am inserted with here will also describe the low and high qualities of Government throughout the years. We all know what it's like when we see a default in government. A default is only something that can be fixed. Government will usually carry-on and be seen as an advancement to any society, working with Government is now the challenge of greatness and good behavior. I'm sure you will enjoy this, even if you don't except some of  the contents which is just history and a little bit of my own thought. Either way enjoying something is of satisfaction. Infact in representation of my ancesters I hold a Faction the DeLancey Faction which represents many things, one is satisfaction whether you agree  or disagree your satisfaction is noticed. Well  it's almost Christmas, I may represent why this is, through of course my research. For I'll describe a little bit of current ability. Christmas is  based on a Holiday. Preferably  the birth of Christ which occured within the  1st Century A.D. though did you know there was a Holiday just about the same time as what we have now and was of the year in the 1st Century B.C.  This Holiday was of three reasons, one was concerning labor which perhaps involves all three reasons. See the Scholars never stopped with their writings, studies, and all that busy caricular. Then we have Tax's. Then there was the working force in which circulated much of the economy towards its greatness. I beleive the Ruler of  the day was called a Caeser this high figure at the place of Rome I think actually it was the City of Rome for there  were many cities amongst Rome, had took apart an Oxen from its Plow relaxed it upon the great entry of the Palace which was upon many steps. The second relaxation was the  tax, no one had to pay the tax for that time I think it was just  a day I'm not sure, the third thing was that no Scholar, Teacher or benefactor to the knowledge did any work of that choice and matter. In fact  the day was free of anything and all as well. This Holiday did go up till Jesus's day and is perhaps still a part of a Holiday we still celebrate. There is a picture I will relocate  and post here, it is a drawing or some form of painting of the city and people, and the Oxen separated from its cart and or plow upon a great set of steps. Ok that was for the Holiday, getting back to  things that are found through Art Economics History again. I'm getting better at this I have to be I enjoy it to much.

Treaty of Ancenis this was created through the League of the Public Weal. Francis II (Duke of Brittany) joined it against King Louis XI of France in 1465, invaded Normandy in 1467 on behalf of the dispossessed Charles de France (Louis XI's Brother), and allied himself with King Edward IV of England in 1468.

Pierre d'Amboise fought along side Joan of Arc with his brother Louis d' Amboise. Piere was Lord of Chaumont, Meilont, Sagonne, Les Rochettes, Asnieres (in Blesois), Saint-Verain, Bussy, Previlly, Les Bordes - Guenond, Moulins, Charenton, ect; he was ambassador to Rome, under Louis XI. He was the son of Hugh VIII of Amboise who was killed at the battle of Agincourt. Pierre's mother was Jeanne de Guenand. Pierre and de Bueil had 17 children.

I am doing some research of Picardy and Lombardy. Realizing Picardy was created later it is still interesting how the 'ardy' at the end  of these place names are alike. There are two people I've found so far holding this name though with an s to it as Ardys I and Ardys II and are from the time of Lombardy's era.

Lombardy; Capital Milan. 1st habitat by! Etruscan tribes who founded the city Mantua and spread the use of writing; later starting from the fifth centruy B.C. <(this may not be acurate by the invasion of the Celtic Tribes, and founded several cities. These people perhaps mixed and including (Milan) and extended their rule to the Adriatic Sea in 194 B.C. after the Roman take over halted expansion which led Romans in the Po Valley from the 3rd century onwards. The Romans made a provence of the area they had acumilated of what is Lombardy now and was before said name Lombardy given the name Gallia Cisalpina ("Gaul is on the nearer side of the Alps"). The Romans left behind a wide culture of trade, roads and agriculture. Pliny the Elder was born here in (Como) and Virgil (in Mantua). The temporary moving of the Capital of the Western Empire to Mediolanun (Milan) was very strategic and was emphasized again in the late antiguity as the strategic role of Lombardy. Moving ones capital from one place to another seems to have went on as far as the 14th century this period is describing of the Knights Templar my research continues with the 'mobile capital' it is for sure this accured in America around the 1700's before it was created as the United States, which we  call Washington D.C. it started in New York went to Pennsylvania then the District of Columbia. America's 5th College was started  by a Charter Granted by the King of England by request of James DeLancey; this Kings College at the forming of the revolution was closed for a while then re-opened as Columbia College.

Langobardia Minor (the duchies of Spoleto and Benevento) while the territories which remained under Byzantine control were called "Romania (hence the name of today's  Romagna) and had as a fulcrum the Evarchate of Ravenna. Page one of the site expresses many names affiliated as Guy or the female version as Guyonne, here at the Duchy of Spoleto we  have Guy III of Spoleto who died  12 December 894 he was King of Italy 889 and Holy Roman Emperor 891 he married  Ageltrude a daughter of Adelchis of Benevento his son  was married  to Lambert.

Guaimar I of Salerno 855-901 was the prince  of Salerno from 880>? maybe to his death. His parents were Prince Guaifer and Landelaica, daughter of Lando I of Capua. I will be doing some research on the names Lando and Landelaica as they have similarities of DeLancey.

Alice of Normandy (or Adekiza, Adelaide or Aelis) was born circa 1002 died around 1038, was the daughter of Duke Richard II of Normandy -'there's that _ard_ again'- and  Judith of Brittany (c,982-1017). Judith was the daughter of Conan I, Duke of Brittany and Ermengarde of Anjou "ard again", and mother of Robert the Magificient _~notice how cient is also in Anciently I just thought I'd put that in there~_ Judith was 1st wife of Richard the Good, Duke of Normandy married in 996 has 6 children: Richard 1002/4 duke of Normandy~ Adelaide 1003/5 married Renaud I, Count of Burgandy~ Robert 1005/7 duke of Normandy~ William 1007/9 Monk of Fecamp d.1025~ Eleanor 1011/3 married Baldwin IV, Count of Flanders. I take notice of the 'lan' in Flanders as well as in England and DeLancey.~ Matilda 1013/5 Nun at fecamp d.1033 Their mother Duthess Judith died 1017 and is buried at the Abby of Bernay which she founded.

 Alice of Normandy had four children 1.Burgundy 1020-1087 ~ 2.Gui de Brionne or Guy of Burgandy (1025-1069) educated at the court of Normandy, who would succeed the Duchy of Normandy against his cousin William of Normandy (later William the Conqueror),  but had to leave his county of Brionne and Vernon in Normandy, after being at the head  of the coalition of the barons of Normandy, which  was defeated at the Battle of Val-es-Dunes in 1047. It is known that Guy de Brionne found refuge with his uncle Geoffrey II of Anjou. He later attemted to usurp the county of Burgundy to  his brother William. ~ 3.Hugh 1037-1086 Viscount of Lons-le-Sauncier, sire Montmorot, Navilly and Scey married to Aldeberge Scey. They had a son Montmorot Thibert, founder of the house Montmorot (alias Montmoret). ~ 4. Falcon or Fauques of Burgundy.

Geoffrey II, Count of Anjou from 1040 to 1060. he was the son of Fulk the Black called Nerao or le Noir. His father was Geoffrey Greymantel who married Adelaide of Vermandois. Greymantel's father is Fulk II son of Fulk the Red who was the son of Ingelger of Angers and Resinde "Aelinde" D'Amboise, was the first count of Anjou from 898 to 941. He increased the territory of the viscounty of Angers and it became a county around 903. During his reign he was permanently at war with the Normans and the Bretons. he accupied the county of Nantes in 907, but abandoned it to the Bretons in 919. He married Rosalie de Loches, he died around 942 and was succeeded by his son Fulk II. Ingeler (or Ingelgarius) was a Frankish nobleman, who stands at the head of the Plantagenet dynasty some of his later family members believed him to be a son of Tertullus (Tertulle) and Petronilla, ))there is the "lan" in Plantagenet. He was born in Rennes. Fulk II died at Tours 11, November, 958 of only two children Geoffrey I and a daughter Adelais of Anjou whom married five times his family by this has lived on. Again research continues...10:40 P.M.

Gyges of Lidia was the founder of the third or Mermnad dynasty of Lidian kings and reigned from 716 B.C. to 678 B.C. or from (680-644 BCE). He was known to be the father of Mirsus, one of the leaders of the Great Army of Darius 521-486 B.C. Candaules was King of the Ancient Kingdom of Lidia before Gyges and succeeded Meles.

Clotilde 475-545 was born in Burgundian Court of Lyon the  daughter of King Chilperic II of Burgundy and his wife Carentena Chilperic II reigned Lyon and Valence. His father was Gondio d.473 his brothers reigned Gundobald at Vienne and Godegesil at Geneva. Remember Guy II of Laval the Bald my research will see if there is  a close relation here since the names resemble each other some what. It is so that Lyon is a variation of DeLancey or could it be the other way around. I'm thinking the Lan is of some significance. So here are two posible connections to~of DeLancey and Guy II of  Laval the Bald and Gundobald and  father who reigned Lyon. This future information I find will definetly be on this site perhaps page two or three. Now is 12-6-2010 at 7:22 P.M. E.S.T.

delta of the Yssel.....This is a great find because I also found some names starting with Y mainly female although there could be male also. I will have them here soon. I am currious of York and will find a connection if there is one on the spelling and meaning of how these names that start with Y came to be. It is a most ubundant challenge for me to do this with all literaturic ventures, so every now and then you will see my ambitious way of study being shared with all. 

Next we have, The Treaty of Verdun August 843. A treaty of three sons of Louis the Pious who was King of Aquitaine from 781 also King of the Franks and Co-Emperor (as Louis I) with his father Charlemagne, from 813.

The place name Tours evolved in the 4th century, a Gallic Period.  It was a place point important for crossing at Loire. This area became apart of the Roman Empire during the 1st century a.d. The city was named "Caesardunum" (Hill of Caesar) The original Gallic name was Turones, became 1st "Civitas Turonum" then "Tours". It was at this time that the Amphitheatre of Tours one of the five largest in the Empire, was built. It is of importance that this is a major route and crossing point throughout time. In the 6th century we have Grogory of Tours author of The Ten Books of History. At the 9th Century, Tours was at the rebirth of the Carolingion Period and its dynasty. In 732 A.D. The Battle of Tours involving Charles Martel who stoped a large army led by Abdul Rahman Al Ghafigi which came from Al-Andalus these horseman advanced 500Km deep into France. This territory was in despute by the Counts of Blois  and Anjou. Anjou was victorious in the 9th Century. Tours still throughout its remaining years has been of interest Guy of Tours may be of a close descend to the DeLancey Family.

 12th Dynasty. The new line of Pharoaha moved the capital back north from Thebes and resumed the building of Piramids for their tombs. The 12th Dynasty was one of great prosperity, which also reestablished Egyptian control of Nubia, an area that straddled what is today the border of Egypt and Sudan. It was an important source of raw material - especially gold - and was a crucial conduit of trade from central Africa. Another thriving area during the period was the Fayum, an oasis area 100 km (62 miles) south of Cairo, which saw major irrigation and other public works. Amongst these were two kings pyramids, and of them being the monument shown here, of Amenemhat III at Hawara. Unusually, it was built  of mud-brick rather than stone and it had a gargantuan temple  built on the south side. This temple, known as the 'Labyrinth', was destroyed 2000 years ago, leaving only the fragments visible in the forground.
