|Tom Hiddleston as Henry V|
I used to think that such a romantic notion was impossible. Then I married Roman.
He is a true prince, with a noble and generous heart, a strong and courageous nature, tender, affectionate, utterly romantic, compassionate and eager to help everyone. Every virtue exonerated in romantic novels and ancient fairy tales is combined in him.
Ladies and Gentlemen, it is not a myth!
Prince Charming, Knights in Shining Armor, the heroes of the stories were meant to inspire to greatness. And though it seems that few men take the challenge, once in a while there are Henrys and Romans who stand above the crowd and demonstrate true princely behavior.
Such men often seem as giants to compared to the rest.
|George Washington, often called a prince among men|
|Prince Albert, husband to Queen Victoria|
|King George VI of England, father of Queen Elizabeth II|
So many truly great men have existed throughout history. I add to that list fiction heroes, whom I wish my son to become very familiar with.
Series such as Master and Commander and Horatio Hornblower. And my favorite sailor/mathematician Nathaniel Bowditch.
|Ioan Grufford as Horatio Hornblower|
All the deeds of King Arthur and the knights of the round table.
Kings and Queens of Narnia, given titles that express good attributes. Throughout the series all the kings seem to come from the lowest place to be granted the highest honors.
All the characters created by Robert Louis Stevenson, Rudyard Kipling, G.A. Henty, and the list goes on.
We gave our son the name Ethan meaning strong and Patrick meaning noble. As he grows we will teach him how make his name the inspiration for his character.
I want my son to be like his father, a prince among men.
I want my daughter to believe in Prince Charming and know what he should really look like.
She will not be easily deceived, since she has such a man for her father.
I believe that there can be many heroes and knights and princes in this world, when given the inspiration to follow and the opportunity to succeed!
