Haunted, and happy, is how I describe the feelings surrounding my November 12. 2008 blog about The Real Snow White. It is one of the most popular articles I’ve written about a real life young woman named Margarete von Waldeck, who’s life was cut short mysteriously from an apparent poisoning back in 1554. She was 21.
When Googling her name my blog site, The Wit Continuum, appears twice on the first page, which is pretty cool, but I wonder how many people are really interested in this infamous person of history. Was she really the inspiration for the Grimms fairy tale Snow White? The parallels are interesting to say the least.
It seems there may be serge in historic discovery going on here by factions unknown. Continuing the search for more info…and seriously thinking about starting my own Margarete Von Waldeck blog club. But what do you do with a dead girl?
