"Q" is for Queen, Quai d'Orsay and more



I love reading about the many Queens in history. There's Elizabeth 1st and her passion for Robert, Lord Dudley; also Henry VIII, her father, and the intriguing story of his six Queens between 1509 and 1547.


We have Boudicca, the famous Queen of the Iceni, who died in 60AD or 61AD. She quarreled with the Roman Empire and led an uprising against it's army in Britain.  

Life is a quest, with it's many questions to be answered. Query the quotidian to find your quota of happiness!


Paris has it's queues; Victor Hugo's Quasimodo in "Notre-Dame de Paris", and the Quai D'Orsay which runs along the left bank of the River Seine.


There are the Monks who wrote long ago with quills and, in taking part in a quarterly quiz you may be asked about a quadrille; the tiny quail; Quakers; quinine; possibly the old Queensberry rules for boxing or Quetzalcoatl, the Aztec God whose name means feathered serpent.


And it's time now for me to quit the blog, be quite quiet under my quilt. I'll go quickly, but thank you for visiting the Hope and Dreams Blog! 


Have a lovely weekend, my friends! I'll be posting "R" on Monday to continue the A-Z Blog Challenge.
