I was forced to stay up all night for a reason I will not relate here, but upon coming home, I went to bed. I awoke awhile ago, and I had the following dream. Frogive if is is a bit stange, and if it makes little sense. My dreams rarely make little sense. Still, I thought it interesting and worth realting. I wrote this down before I forgot the details, and I may be mistaken in some of them, but I think I have this down fairly accurately: 


A ROYAL DREAM
I do not recall the political situation, but I dreamed that Maria Margarita, the Duchess d'Anjou and Queen Consort to the throne of France was at a university. Among others, myself included I think, Louis Alphonse went to the school to retrieve her, for there was some danger to her I recall. I think it was at my insistence, for I remember when we arrived and opened the door the classroom where the Duchess sat, we had a confrontation.

The liberal professor and the liberal students wished us to leave for interrupting them on this matter. Maria Margarita did not seem ready or willing to live, seeing no sense of urgency I suppose. Then I believe it was me or another, along with her husband who tried to make the sense of urgency clear to her. The leftist students mocked our political concerns, as if royal matters were of no importance in the modern world. The professor was growing impatient at our waiting at the door, halting his lecture, and Maria Margarita was hesitant. Suddenly, I recall that I or someone, perhaps the Duke d'Anjou said something that made Maria Margarita stir, considering leaving. The students and professors still growing easy, hesitantly the Duchess d' Anjou rose and came with us. I recall how beautiful she was. 

Then we found ourselves in some corridor in the Vatican, where for whatever reason I suppose we were seeking refuge, for I think there was some sort of political danger. I remember there were many rooms, and Louis Alphonse carrying his wife in his arms down this long corridor--I think he was carrying her, but the dream is unclear. He was comforting her, I think. I remember thinking that the liberal priests and cardinals in the Vatican must think little of our endeavour, but we must have had the permission of the Pope.

Finally, we found a room and the Duke D'Anjou placed his wife on the bed that she might sleep. The beautiful heir to the throne was now safe in her room, and could rest. I recall how beautiful she appeared in this dream. She seemed real in many ways, not like a dream with her brown hair and a face I cannot find the description for.

Then going back down the corridor I recall, the Duke d'Anjou said something very wise, one of those things which people say that are always remembered. He said something about wishing he did not have to fulfil his duties as king or rule  his people "if I did not believe monarchy to be the best form of government".

This last line was very memorable and around this time I awoke.

Sounds like a very vivid dream.  I've dreamt about royalty before as well.

By the way...this dream means that the Count of Paris will shortly be crowned at Rheims.

Just kidding

I recently dreamt I met Leo XIII and Pius X.  Leo was very aloof and didn't say much but Pius was talking up a blue streak about this and that and how things were when he was young (I was helping him get into a carraige) and calling me "My son."

Dreams are really off the wall.

Ha, I was thinking how weird I must be for having such a dream, but I am glad I share the company. I had a friend who dreamed of going to confession with St. John Bosco. If I recall correctly, St. John Bosco helped him with his scruples.

I wish I was a mystic for that reason!

Me either. This is rare, but I'd like to have more like it!

I can barely make sense of my dreams.

I rarely recall mine, and when I do, of late, they involve my family in rather tough conditions.

Well now you've gone and done it Pilot, startin' this dream stuff. Last night I dreamt the MONARCHY WAS RESTORED over the U.S. (This is not a joke like the thing in the other post you thought I meant seriously.)

It seems the U.S. government must have collapsed although that part wasn't in the dream. It had already happened when the dream started. I was (at work I guess) reading news stories about the new government that was being established. We were being consolidated with Canada, under the crown, as something like "Dominion of North America." Each of the (now former) U.S. states was becoming a province like the Canadian ones.  (Sorry, Baron, if you're reading. I didn't see anything about West Florida.   )

There was one very weird thing in the dream. It seems that, at the same time, Brittany had been separated from France and had become an independent British Dominion, AND CORNWALL was made a separate country of some sort. I have no idea where that came from as I know very little about Brittany and have never given it a thought. I am familiar with Cornish nationalism.

At what time did this dream visit you, Brennus?

Brennus,
I'd be content if 'present Florida' were a Province.

I had a dream last night where I typed something extremely inappropriate on this very thread. Then I dreamed I woke up anxious that it was real, and it was! When I really woke up I was kind of relieved to find no posts on it from me at all. Like most British people, according to statistical surveys, I dream about the Queen now and then, in fact I did so a couple of nights ago. It's rare, though.

Brennus, although in theory feudally subject to the Kings of France, for centuries Britanny functioned as an effectively sovereign nation. This obviously was not at all to the liking of the Kings, and when the Duchy fell to an heiress, Anne of Brittany, it was insisted that she marry Charles VIII then, when he died and they had no surviving children, his cousin and heir Louis XII. They had only daughters, but no problem as the eldest married his cousin and heir Francis I.

Representation of the Dukes of Brittany passed out of the French royal line with the death childless of Henri III (it now rests with the Duke of Bavaria), but by then Brittany had been thoroughly incorporated into France and the title Duke of Brittany, at first held by the King as a subsidiary title like King of Navarre later (and earlier), had become like a normal French peerage title. There is no such long history of independence in Cornwall, it was to all intents a part of England long before the Conquest, and very little is known of its history as an independent region. Cornish separatists are (ahem!) dreaming, I'm afraid.

PS Brittany was for a time under indirect English rule, as for that period Brittany was feudally subject to the Duke of Normandy, who was of course the King of the English (as the title still was), rather than to the King of France directly. This was in the time of Henry II and his sons Richard I and John, and the Dukes were English princes, first Geoffrey, third son of Henry II, then his son Arthur, whom John murdered, or so we believe.

When John carelessly mislaid Normandy, Anjou, Maine, Touraine, Poitou and probably a few other places besides, he lost the overlordship of Brittany too. So there is little basis for Brittany becoming a Dominion of the British Crown, that was just one of those dream-things.
