In heraldry, azure is the tincture with the colour blue, and belongs to the class of tinctures called "colours". In engraving, it is sometimes depicted as a region of horizontal lines or else is marked with either az. or b. as an abbreviation..The Khepresh was an ancient Egyptian royal headdress.. It is also known as the blue crown or war crown. New Kingdom pharaohs are often shown wearing it in battle, but it was also frequently worn in ceremonies...

There are several versions of the knight's tour, the one used here being a variation of that devised by de Moivre..

According to the legends that spread through the grapevine of Southern France, Mary Magdalene was a temple priestess of royal lineage. The Midi and Languedoc regions were her ancestral lands. Mary lived in retreat in Rennes le Chateau, then at St. Baume (Aix en Provence) where she died (AD 63)..

The same authorities say that when Mary arrived in France she was pregnant with Jesus’ child. As Mssrs. Baigent, Leigh and Lincoln keenly observed, if one breaks the word sangraal, “holy grail,” after the ‘g’ it renders the word as sang raal, which means “Royal Blood” in Old French..

Somewhere down the road was the turn-off to the mountain top village. My only clue to its whereabouts was a sign for a restaurant called “Les Pommes Bleues” and the help of locals... city that he builds shall bear my name.. The woman that he loves shall bear my child. So it shall be written. So it shall be done...
