Know your history @Regranned from @africanrenaissancemovement - Stewart, was the son of Henry and Mary Stewart, whose bloodline stretched all the way back to the Pictish-Scottish King Kenneth the Niger. He became King of Scotland in A.D. 1567-1625, following the death of his mother Mary of Scots, and was chosen by his cousin Elizabeth of England to succeed her. This Colored King was the first to unite the British Isles and Scotland which then became Great Britain. His name is the most well known of all European kings, he authorized the "king James version" of the bible, and names it after himself. His six feet dark-skinned and big nosed wife Anne of Denmark, who praised her darkness and the beauty of being black, became the mother of seven children. James VI/I was a dark-complexioned leader as was the whole Stewart Dynasty. King James VI/I and wife Anne are the ninth great-grandparents of Elizabeth II. The name James was originally called Hames or Hamish, long before the Roman invention of the pagan letter "J" (A.D. 1500). Ham- of Hames is an old root of the name Ham, which was historically and Biblically written Niger, Negro or Black, with other alternatives to derive the Biblical Holy name "I am (God)," which itself was originally written Ham or Yam! #Source: Negro Rulers of Scotland and the British Isles by Dr. John L.

Yesterday on 22 November 1774 Major-General Robert Clive Commander-in-Chief of British India died in London. He was a privateer who established the military and political supremacy of the East India Company in India. Clive left India for the last time in February 1767. He was appointed Lord Lieutenant of Shropshire. There was no inquest on his death, variously alleged he had stabbed himself or cut his throat with a penknife or had taken an overdose of opium, while a few newspapers reported his death as due to an apoplectic fit or stroke. He was buried in St Margaret's Parish Church at Moreton Say, near his birthplace in Shropshire. Here is he in military uniform. The Battle of Plassey is shown behind him.
