§ Historical contemporaries
I continue to be delighted at how connected arbitrary parts of history are.
Here's a list of contemporaries I would not have guessed:
- Rembrandt sketched Shah jahan
- Greek ambassador in the Ashoka court
- "Bhaeatha's kingdom" for Bharat as known by the Chinese
- Aurangzeb had rockets when fighting his brother
- Aurangzeb had a French physician (Francois bernier)
- Picasso was against the Korean war (1950) and painted about it.
