#AceHistoryNews says Málaga was the main objective of the 1487 campaign by the Catholic Monarchs against the Emirate of Granada, which had been steadily losing territory to the Christian forces. King Ferdinand II of Aragon left Córdoba with an army of 20,000 horsemen, 50,000 laborers and 8,000 support troops. This contingent joined the artillery commanded by Francisco Ramírez de Madrid that left Écija. The army decided to first attack Vélez-Málaga, and then continue west to Malaga. Nasrid spies gave word of the movements of Christians, and the inhabitants of Vélez fled to the mountains and the Bentomiz castle. #History2Research

Here is an extract: The success of the novel “The Da Vinci Code” is perhaps the single most among factors which brought to public attention the Priory of Sion… History however, points out that there was a Catholic monastic order in Jerusalem by that name during the same time as the Knights Templar. This was proven to be fact by way of a papal bull stating that this order had monasteries and abbeys at Mt. Carmel in Palestine, as well as properties in southern Italy and France. In addition, an organization called the Priory of Sion registered with the bureau of records in Annemasse, France, in 1956.

My man Smitty has encouraged me to talk about the late former president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, and the country during the relevant period, and going forward. Therefore, I won’t wait the usual 40 days following his transition, but rather, following the lead of the South African government I will observe a 10 day period, before commenting substantively. Smitty was among a group of friends and associates that worked with me on a South Africa project in 1998. Smitty is the bearded brother pictured at an event we produced that was hosted by the South African Consulate in New York City.
