9 DEC 1165 - King William I ("The Lion") became King of Scotland after the death of Malcolm IV. His story, from a personal viewpoint, and a lesson that nothing good can ever come from Scots submitting to the lordship or rule of the English. He is known for his Lion Rampant banner which was later developed into the Scottish Royal Flag known today. During his lifetime, William was known for building the Arbroath Abbey and his wars to keep Scottish the southern counties of Northumbria (Northeast England) which ultimately were unsuccessful. To make peace with the English, William chose to submit to the English crown setting a very bad precedent that would haunt Scotland in the coming centuries. William also married off (sold) his daughters to English Barons in an apparent attempt to make peace. One daughter being a great grandmother of mine and why I am part English (just a wee bit). Oh, the times have changed, thank goodness. WHAT IS OUR LESSON FOR TODAY? Never treat women like property and never place Scots in a position to have to yield to the ultimate lordship or rule of the English, because nothing good can ever come from it.…

12 Nov 1869 - THIS DAY IN SCOTTISH HISTORY Edinburgh University first admitted women to the study of medicine. Sophia Jex-Blake, was the first practicing female doctor in Scotland and led the campaign as a student to secure women access to a University education for herself and six other women, collectively known as the Edinburgh Seven. Though Jex-Blake passed her exams, she was not allowed to graduate as regulations prevented women from actually serving on the wards. Petitions to the management failed to convince them to change the rules. Jex-Blake eventually managed to obtain her licence from the Dublin College of Physicians, and devoted her life to promoting the cause of female medicine, together with an active role in the women's suffrage movement.
