‘Everett Glass ‘ By Phoenix Ginger

In 1818 Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz died from pneumonia.

In 1820, Prince Edward, Duke of Kent and Strathearn also died of pneumonia.

A few days later, six to be exact, King George III of the United Kingdom died from a mental illness.

In 1830, no more than ten years later, King George IV of the United Kingdom died from obesity.

In 1837, Princess Louise Eleonore of Hohenlohe-Langenburg from Germany died from unknown causes.

A month or so later, King William IV of the United Kingdom died from a heart attack.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Who would have ever thought that all of these deaths, between many more, were all part of a bigger plan, one that would take decades to fulfill, and hundreds of lives.

Who would have ever imagine that all of this would start with one letter misplaced inviting a young girl to the marriage of a German princess and a prince in line.

Who would have ever seen it coming for the young girl to kill the princess, and walk down the aisle in her name.

And who would have ever anticipated that all of those deaths and lies where for one joyous dream, imagined by thousands of people.

Because feminism, although hidden from sight, has been in our world since humankind was created, fighting a silent war towards the equality between genders, even if it meant killing for it.
