The Crown of Theodelinda

on October 17, 2013

postcards_2_2This beautiful card comes from my good friend Ellu in Italy and shows the crown of  Theodelinda (what a name!), queen of the Lombards in the 500s. Ellu tells me she bought this card about 10 years ago when she went to Monza to see the historical treasures there. Well, I’m glad it resurfaced to be sent to me! Ellu’s postcards are always such a joy! One of the only penpals I have got round to meeting, she is a total sweetheart!
