I have not heard of this monarchy before and am quite intriqued

Discovered the rain queen in a news article as she has just died in her mid twenties Rain Queen

Here is a legend of rain queen

Got my feet propped up and am now reading this tale... She by H. Rider Haggard who brought the Rain Queen to the western worlds attention in the late 1800s.

do you think they are being cagey because case of death was AIDS? did she have any daughters? what is going to happen to the line?????

v sad that a woman should die so young regardless of queenage....

news article I posted said nothing about Aids... where did you read that?
Don´t think she has any children and no idea what will now happen, perhaps the next queen will be choosen along similar lines to the dalai lama

no, but spokes people would not say cause of death and this is in south africa, probably just me being pessimistic about the epidemic there.

how are you and dd (it is dd isn't it?) btw?

actually considering the rain queen does not take a husband but instead keeps company with a number of consorts... would guess there would be a high probability of Aids.

dd and I are fab. I am pregnant with no. 2... 15 weeks

How are you are your ds doing?
