The Thunder
The thunder is awakening,
Her voice is drawing near;
Thy lover's fine arm taking,
Come, and hasten without fear.
You hear the rain-drops patter,
As on the leaves so light,
And now comes the thunder's clatter,
And then great flashes bright.

"Pour le bonheur des Français,

Notre bon Louis seize

S'est allié pour jamais

Au sang de Thérèse

De cette heureuse union

Il sort un beau rejeton

Pour répandre en notre cœur

Félicité parfaite,

Conserve, O ciel protecteur

Les jours d'Antoinette."

The Swedish East India Company

Mon Apr 17, 2017, 11:57 AM
The Swedish India Company (SOIC) made Gothenburg a famous harbour town in the 1700s.  Every good household had to have tea and Chinese porcelain. The headlines chanted "This is where maids and servants drink their tea".

The East India Company was formed on the initiative of Scottish nobleman Colin Campbell and the Swede Niclas Sahlgren. They applied for a charter which afforded them a lucrative monopoly on trade with China. The company built 37 vessels and made 139 trips. A trip would take one and a half years.

(Colin Campbell and Niclas Sahlgren)

One of the key roles on board was that of the "supercargo" (superkargören), and next to the captain, he or she would be the one to call all of the shots.  The supercargo had responsibility for shipment and trading of axes, fishing gear, lanterns, penknives, flour, dried fish, mattresses, and brushes. 
Everything was traded in Cádiz, Spain for the silver that the Chinese wanted. Exotic goods such as silk, furniture, tea and especially porcelain were very sought after back in Sweden. by RochambeauFR
(the "supercargo") 

Many noblemen and landlords wanted to flaunt their own decorations and family arms and sent along drawings for the Chinese artists to transfer on to plates and barrels. The Chinese were very skilled and copied everything.

Homecoming was a big event in Gothenburg, when the ships were sighted at the Vinga lighthouse. The curious would gather to see who the survivors were and the East India Company would hold a great feast called the hen party, which would last a week. The officials were then busy for days, bringing goods into the city with smaller boats and carts, printing catalogs, and advertising in the press.
The auctions were held in a warehouse and serious buyers came from all over Europe.

Niclas Sahlgren became one of the countries wealthiest men. He lived in a palace, but he was reclusive and declined a knighthood. He certainly didn't refuse membership of the Vasa Order, however.
He also donated 24 beds to a hospital, and this hospital later became the famous Sahlgrenska Hospital (Sahlgrenska Universitetssjukhuset) 

Today's East India ship, the Götheborg, was built in the same way as it would have been in the eighteenth century. Since being built in 2003, it has sailed to China and back. It is a copy of the 1745 ship that sank just outside the entrance of Gothenburg harbour. Most of the cargo was salvaged, however, and insurance fraud was suspected. 

At a shareholders meeting on 13 December 1813, the company folded. The remaining stock and inventory was sold to foreign buyers and in 1814, the trade was declared free for anyone. 
The legacy of the SOIC lives on through the Götheborg.

Your profile is always so aesthetically pleasing to look at, and I swear it looks more and more badass every time I visit it.

The stamps, images, gallery, and favourites all seem to blend together perfectly. 
It is highly glorious. Keep up the good work. :)

Despite the fact that your page is filled with elegance and culture  which I heavily admire, I feel uncomfortable about your views on the Islamic people. I see them as human as everybody else, besides the few bad apples who truly are disgusting. In fact, I personally know a few Muslims myself, and they're perfectly find.

Je n'ai rien contre le fait que vous soyiez pour Le Pen, mais à cause du report des voix, je pense qu'elle sera au deuxième tour mais ne gagnera pas. Sauf si Mélenchon est le second candidat...

Vous êtes vraiment royaliste? Cela a l'air bizarre aujourd'hui en France. Ce n'est pas grave, seulement rare.
