May 2009: The 1930s
This newsletter focuses on the 1930s, a transitional period for monarchies, with republics having been established in previously long-term monarchies such as Russia and Germany. The world was in a postwar depression, and Germany was rearming and showing signs of aggression toward its European neighbours. Japan was pursuing its policy of dominance throughout East Asia, and Britain and France were trying to recover from World War I. By the end of the decade the world was at war again, and several more monarchies were on the brink of collapse. As usual, we have sections for births, marriages, deaths, accessions enthronements jubilees & abdications, and major world events.
In other newsletter news, in response to the poll about the sections that our members don't find useful, we've dropped the previous month's and current month's calendars. We've replaced them with a list of major royal events for the current month, along with links to relevant threads and blog posts, taken from the calendar of major royal events. For members who are missing the calendars, you can see a list of upcoming royal events at the bottom of the main forum page, and you can see the TRF calendar here (there's a link in the dark-blue header bar at the top of any forum page).
Lady Jennifer, LadyLeana, and Zonk (newsletter editors)
