St. Valantine


Saint Valentine of Rome states that he was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry. There are other sources of the origin of the day but this is the one I have chosen to depict.

OK, seeing as it's St. Valentine's Day..... what could be more romantic (and chivalrous) than: Francesco Gonzaga and his Doomed Charge Across the River Taro at the Battle of Fornovo 
1495(?):
river.............

Bye for now.
