Les chemins inexplorés de l'Histoire

Je suis passionné par les chemins inexplorés de l’Histoire ; ces événements qui ont été oublié dans les manuels parce-qu’ils sont  déroutant ou parce que les secrets de famille ont été bien gardés. India-Russie-Sweden-USA-Mexique- Michael-of-greece-stories-Strange-Family portraits- mysteries -Hiver Cythère -Madrid-http://www.princemichaelschronicles.com
Parce que l’Histoire éclaire le présent, je vous dévoile chaque semaine ces récits étonnants au sujet de bijoux maudits, volés, ou perdus, mais aussi les insolites secrets de famille que vous pourrez lire dans la rubrique « Royautés ».
J’aime aussi les histoires intrigantes et étranges que j’ai collectées au gré de mes voyages, de rencontres ou d’expériences personnelles.

Inde-PrincemichaelChronicles-unexplored patheways

Elles sont rassemblées sous l’appellation « Cabinet d’histoires curieuses » et vous pouvez lire ces histoires, dont la rationalité nous échappe, mais qui suscitent la curiosité, sous l’onglet « mystère »

Bonne lecture,
Michel de Grèce
