Eléanor de Roucy de Roye
Eléanor de Roucy de Roye, princesse de Condé was the eldest daughter and heiress of Charles, seigneur de Roye and de Muret, comte de Roucy. Her mother, Madeleine de Mailly, dame de Conti, was the daughter of Louise de Montmorency and half-sister of Admiral Coligny, d'Andelot, Cardinal de Châtillon. Eléanor was the first wife of Louis I de Bourbon, prince de Condé. Eléanor inherited the county of Roucy through her father and the lordship of Conti through her mother. On 22 June 1551, she married Louis I de Bourbon, prince de Condé at age sixteen, converted him to the Reformed faith, they had eight children, of whom only two and François, were to have progeny. During the first of the French Civil Wars between 1560 and 1563, Eléanor and her mother were engaged in important political activities in support of her husband, the Prince of Condé. Twice while Condé was a prisoner of the ultra-catholic Guise family, his wife and mother-in-law systematically reinforced his alliances with Protestant German princes and with Elizabeth I of England.
Armed with this support, Eléanor made negotiations by letter and by direct contact with the regent, Catherine de' Medici. She died in July 1564.

Pendon Museum, located in Long Wittenham near Didcot, England, is a museum that displays scale models, in particular an large scene representing parts of the Vale of White Horse in the 1920s and 1930s. The scene, under construction since the 1950s and with parts dating back earlier, was inspired by detailed research into the architecture and landscape of the vale, with some models of cottages taking hundreds of hours to complete. Founded by the late Roye England, the museum is run by a group of volunteers and is open to the public most weekends and holidays, except during the winter; the museum was founded by the artist and craftsman Roye England, interested in model railways. He observed the destruction and modification of many historic buildings in the area and began to make model representations of them. Both the main Vale scene and others display working scale model railway scale models of typical scenes on the Great Western Railway of the 1920s; the trains are representative in detail of those travelling that line in those years.
It is not a'model railway layout' in its usual sense as the trains run at scale speed with a realistic interval between each. The main display and ongoing project at Pendon is a scale representation of the Vale of White Horse as it was in the inter-war period; the scene is centred on the'typical' village of Pendon Parva, served by a railway station on the main London to Bristol GWR main line that runs through the Vale, another on the M&SWJR that became one of the constituent companies of the GWR in 1923. The topography and the village layout is fictional, but every building and significant feature is an exact model of a real building from the Vale of White Horse; some locos on the layout: GWR 2900 Class No. 2943 Hampton Court Built in 1912. GWR 4000 Class No. 4050 Princess Alice Built in 1914. GWR 2251 Class No. 2253 Built in 1930. LSWR N15 Class No. 789 Sir Guy Built in 1925. GWR 3700 Class No. 3705 Mauritius LSWR S15 class No. 515 Built in 1921. On the ground floor of the museum, a model representing a Great Western Railway branch line on Dartmoor built in 1955 to showcase the trains being built for the Vale scene, is operated for visitors.
The main focus of the Dartmoor scene is a model of Brunel's timber viaduct at Walkham in Devon built by R. Guy Williams, who built many of the model locomotives at the museum. Locos on the layout include: GWR 2900 Class No. 2921 Saint Dunstan Built in 1907. GWR 2800 Class No. 2844 Built in 1912. LSWR M7 Class No. 30 Built in 1904 The museum includes displays of individual models, modelling methods and railway artefacts. The museum displays Madder Valley, a pioneering model railway built by John Ahern; the model trains are hand built, to represent individual locomotives and wagons as possible, based on surviving records and photographs. Operation consists of a sequence of trains, showing what one could have seen passing by on a summer day and night, in the mid-1920s; this sequence is based on timetables of the period. They are all modelled in 4 mm to 1 foot scale, run on track of 18mm gauge, a combination known as EM gauge; the museum is located at Ordnance Survey mapping six-figure grid reference SU542935.

Edward James Roye
Edward James Roye served as the fifth President of Liberia from 1870 to his overthrow in 1871 and subsequent violent death. He had served as the 4th Chief Justice of Liberia from 1865 until 1868, he was the first member of Liberia's True Whig Party to serve as President. Born in 1815 in Newark, Roye was a descendant of the Igbo people of present-day Nigeria. In 1846, attracted by the American Colonization Society's promotion of the relocation of African Americans to the colony of Liberia in West Africa, Roye at the age of 31 emigrated to the colony with his family. There he set up business as a merchant; the next year, the colony gained independence. Within three years of his arrival, Roye became active in Liberian politics, serving as a representative and Speaker of the Liberian House of Representatives, as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Liberia. Roye was inaugurated as President of Liberia on January 3, 1870. In the decades after 1868, escalating economic difficulties weakened the state's dominance over the coastal indigenous tribal peoples.
Conditions worsened, the cost of imports was far greater than the income generated by exports of its commodity crops of coffee, palm oil and timber. Liberia tried to modernize its agricultural economy. In 1871, Roye tasked the Speaker of the House of Representatives, William Spencer Anderson, with negotiating a new loan from British financiers. Anderson secured $500,000 under strict terms from the British consul-general, David Chinery, but was criticised, was arrested. Anderson was tried the following year for his part in securing the loan, he was shot to death while leaving the courthouse. Roye was removed from the presidency on 26 October 1871; the circumstances surrounding his ouster remain imprecise, although historians believe that he was deposed in a coup d'état. It is not known, he was jailed for a few months afterward. His unpopular loans with Britain may have given his enemies the reasons to depose him. No specific historical record is available about the date and circumstances of Roye's death.
Varying accounts indicate that he was killed on February 11 or February 12, 1872. Another account suggests that he drowned on February 12, 1872 while trying to reach a British ship in Monrovia harbor; the portrait of President Roye in the gallery of the Presidential Mansion in Monrovia notes his date of death as February 11, 1872.

Roye is a commune in the Somme department in Hauts-de-France in northern France. Roye is situated at the junction of the A1 autoroute and the N17 road, on the banks of the Avre, some 30 miles southeast of Amiens. In 1634, religious refugees from Seville, known as the illuministes tried to establish themselves in France, they claimed to be inspired by celestial messages. Pierre Guérin, curate of Saint-Georges, was converted and himself created many disciples, called "les Guérinistes"; the Catholic Church sought out and executed all of them by 1635. In 2015, a shooting took place in travelers' camp. Church of Saint Pierre. Rebuilt in concrete in 1930 after considerable damage during the First World War; the 12th century choir and apse and the 15th century stained-glass windows were all saved. The Hôtel de Ville, built between 1775 and 1777 by the architect Pierre Dercheu was blown-up with dynamite by the retreating Germans on 17 March 1917; the new building, by local architect Arthur Régnier, was completed in 1932.
It is reminiscent of the original by Dercheu. Gracchus Babeuf, a protagonist during the French revolution was born nearby and lived and worked here. Pierre Guérin, an illuministe preacher. Curate of Saint-Georges church, Roye Abbot Jules Corblet, hagiographer for the diocese of Amiens.

Fall of Eagles
Fall of Eagles is a 13-part British television drama aired by the BBC in 1974. The series was produced by Stuart Burge; the series portrays historical events from 1848 to 1918, dealing with the ruling dynasties of Austria-Hungary and Russia. The scriptwriters were Keith Dewhurst, John Elliot, Trevor Griffiths, Elizabeth Holford, Ken Hughes, Troy Kennedy Martin, Robert Muller, Jack Pulman, David Turner and Hugh Whitemore; the series tells the story of the final decades of three great empires brought to an inevitable demise by history, each of which used an eagle in their heraldry. The central theme is the effect of centuries of despotism, where a continual lack of social reform, the devastating effect of World War I caused the clouds of revolution to start forming, it commences in the aftermath of the Revolutions of 1848 and continues to the Armistice of 11 November 1918, covering about 70 years of history in 13 episodes. The episodes are divided between the three empires, namely: Austria and Russia.
Cast, in order of first appearance, sorted by episode and empire. The narrator of the series was Michael Hordern; the music accompanying the main title and credits is the Trauermarsch, the first movement of Mahler's Symphony No. 5. The closing theme music is the central section from the first movement of Shostakovich's Symphony No. 6. One positive review of the series states that "This ambitious series captivates the audience by depicting the years of revolution, in which the well cemented monarchies of central and eastern Europe disintegrate. However, the show does not attach any sentiments with royalty or the happenings in wake of its collapse." Fall of Eagles was released on video and DVD in autumn 2004 in the United Kingdom, with the release including a photo gallery and a comprehensive 40-page historical notes booklet written by Andy Priestner providing further details on the historical events and characters in the series. It includes new interviews with Charles Kay and director David Cunliffe.
It was released in May 2006 in the United States, without the companion booklet. A separate book based on the series titled The Fall of Eagles: The Death of the Great European Dynasties by Cyrus Leo Sulzberger II was first published by Crown in 1981.
