COMMUNISM

Romania's Problem With Dracula

Bram Stoker's novel was a mixed blessing for Romania. It attracted tourists, but the legend made a villain of a national hero. 

NATIONAL GALLERY

Cambodia: From Angkor Wat to Pol Pot

The first in a new series exploring the history of a country in pictures begins with Cambodia.

GUERNICA

Black and White and Red all over

Had Picasso not applied brush to canvas would we even care about what really happened to a small Biscayan town 80 years ago?

FRANCE

'Aux armes, citoyens!'

The revolutionary hymn that would become known as 'La Marseillaise' was composed in one night on 25 April, 1792.

EARLY MODERN

The Birth of Oliver Cromwell

The future Lord Protector of England, was born on 25 April, 1599. Tales about him being stolen from his cradle by a pet monkey are probably fanciful.
