This beautiful man is Giuliano de Medici! The brother of the Magnificent Lorenzo de’ Medici! 
       Giuliano was considered to be the “Golden” Boy, obtaining this name by his charming good looks. He actually was a co-ruler of Florence with his brother Il Magnifico before his death in 1478 when he murdered by the infamous Pazzi Conspirators. 
         Though not much is known about him he sure as hell was quite the babe!

         ”We learned our lesson. There is no conscience.         buried by fear, we live in pits;         in terror we carve out our dark loves,         statues of ourselves-evil troglodytes.         We learned our lesson. There is no love.         How could we then escape into darkness         from the sail of the nostrils sniffing us out,         from the staves and hands in their spreading net,         when the mothers and children would never come back         to the hollowed out pod of an empty heart.         We learned our lesson. One must forget,         so as not to die imagining it all.         We rise in the dark and slippery night.         We look for the heart, take hold of it, strain         our ears: the pain will be extinguished,         But stone-yes, a rock-will still remain.         And so we stand on tanks and on trucks,         on aeroplanes and in the rubble,         where the serpent of silence will crawl over us,         where the ice-cold torrent will cleanse us, not knowing         if time is standing still or flowing.         Like foreign cities dug from the depths,         human strata turning to ashes         lying on their backs or standing straight,         not knowing whether we are the pages         of a fire sculpted Iliad in shimmering gold,         whether, if only from pity, they build         a cross over our grave.”

         We learned our lesson. There is no conscience.
         buried by fear, we live in pits;
         in terror we carve out our dark loves,
         statues of ourselves-evil troglodytes.

         We learned our lesson. There is no love.
         How could we then escape into darkness
         from the sail of the nostrils sniffing us out,
         from the staves and hands in their spreading net,
         when the mothers and children would never come back
         to the hollowed out pod of an empty heart.

         We learned our lesson. One must forget,
         so as not to die imagining it all.
         We rise in the dark and slippery night.
         We look for the heart, take hold of it, strain
         our ears: the pain will be extinguished,
         But stone-yes, a rock-will still remain.

         And so we stand on tanks and on trucks,
         on aeroplanes and in the rubble,
         where the serpent of silence will crawl over us,
         where the ice-cold torrent will cleanse us, not knowing
         if time is standing still or flowing.
         Like foreign cities dug from the depths,
         human strata turning to ashes
         lying on their backs or standing straight,
         not knowing whether we are the pages
         of a fire sculpted Iliad in shimmering gold,
         whether, if only from pity, they build
         a cross over our grave.

Lord Alfred Douglas (AKA Bosie) was Oscar Wilde’s boyfriend. He was kind of a horrible person, and I couldn’t figure out what Wilde saw in him. And then I saw a picture.

Not Robert E. Lee and his Sons, but rather General Robert E. Lee and his son, Major General George Washington Custis Lee, and Lee’s aide-de-camp, Colonel Walter Taylor - colorized!
This photograph was taken outside of a rented home in Richmond a week after Robert E. Lee surrendered to Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Courthouse, and his family home for the past century had been turned in to a national cemetary and razed by Union forces. 
Also fun fact, Robert E. Lee’s wife was the step-grandchild of George Washington.
