Historical Trivia

As a historical romance author I strive to be as accurate on my details as I possibly can be. This isn't always easy, considering there are blank spots in history where I have to say what happened here? Still, half the fun is the research.

So I thought I'd send out a question for you: What's your favorite tidpit from history? Do you have a bit of trivia that you'd like to share? Or perhaps you have a question you've always wanted to ask but didn't know where to look for the answer?

I'm not an expert on every aspect of history - but I do have some pretty cool research under my belt and I'll be happy to help out.

For now here's a couple tidbits for you to think of:

In Ireland it was considered to be a social blunder NOT to offer a guest a bath.
Cetlci women wore makeup - just like the Egyptians.
Roman women sugared themselves to rid their bodies of hair.
