Fact of the Day: King Egica the Evil

Egica was a king in the 7th century ruling over what is now modern-day Spain. One of his worst actions as king was enslaving Jewish people and force converting their youngest children to Christianity.

Sounds like he deserved his nickname.

Not I presume on the list of list of Spanish heroes I should think.
But they were wild and woolly days way back then, so not really unexpected.

PS: The volcanoes of Australia - yesterday's topic.
I couldn't recall one area and I visited there just so many times.
In dinosaur days the GLASSHOUSE MOUNTAIN Range just 2 hours north-west of
Brisbane was a volcanic area.
So it was a very, very long time ago that Australia was volcanic.

I'm the only volcanic remnant remaining on "OZ" land - ha ha.
I do NOT SUFFER fools or BIGOTS.
