On May 2, 1335 Otto, Duke of Austria, ascended the throne of Carinthia, becoming Duke of Carinthia, as you might expect.
What strikes Us Rhinos as interesting is that History recalls him as ‘Otto the Merry’. We can only suppose his court was a frolicsome place, at least by medieval standards (which were flexible.)
IF Rhinos had names like our Readers, We would investigate this idea. Thus one’s name would not simply be Jerry; it could be ‘Jerry the Misguided’, or ‘Jerry the Impatient’, or ‘Jerry the Lopsided’. This may be an idea whose time has come.
