In 1301, Levon III was made co-ruler by his uncle Hetoum II. In 1305 he was crowned king and his uncle, who officially retired, became regent. In 1305, Hetoum and Levon led the Armenian army to defeat a Mamluk raiding force at Bagras. On November 17, 1307, Levon and Hetoum were murdered with their retinue while visiting their Mongol allies' general, Bilarghu. Bilarghu had converted to Islam and sought to build a mosque in the capital city of Sis, but Hetoum had blocked the move and complained to the Mongol ilkhan, Oljeitu. Bilarghu was later executed by the Great Khan for his actions.

|Sicily|, |Kingdom| |of| |Sicily,| || |Frederick| |III| |of| |Aragon,| |1296| |-| |1337||denaro|
Frederick was the regent of the Kingdom of Sicily, 1291 - 1295, and subsequently king of Sicily from 1295 until his death on 25 June 1337. He was the third son of Peter III of Aragon and served in the War of the Sicilian Vespers on behalf of his father and brothers, Alfonso III and James II. Although the second Frederick of Sicily, he chose to call himself "Fridericus Tertius" (Frederick III) - presumably because only some fifty years before, his well-known and remembered great-grandfather had reigned Sicily and also used an official ordinal as Holy Roman Emperor: Fridericus secundus.

|Nabataean| |Kingdom|, |Nabataean| |Kingdom,| |Aretas| |IV,| |9| |B.C.| |-| |40| |A.D.||AE| |14|
Aretas IV Philopatris was the greatest Nabataean king, ruling S. Palestine, most of Trans-Jordan, N. Arabia, and Damascus. During his reign, large religious centers - also serving as banks and trade clearinghouses - were established on the Hauran, in Petra, and at Avdat. Aretas was married to Huldu when he became king. Her profile was featured on coins until 16 A.D. After a short gap, the face of his second wife, Shuqailat, appeared on the coins. Aretas's daughter married Herod Antipas, tetrarch of the Galilee. When Antipas took another wife, Herodias, Aretas's daughter returned to her father, who went to war against Antipas and defeated him. The episode led to the beheading of John the Baptist. Antipas appealed to Tiberius, who dispatched the governor of Syria to attack Aretas. Paul mentions Aretas in connection with his visit to Damascus when he had to to be lowered from the wall in a basket to escape. Al-Khazneh, the treasury, one of the most elaborate buildings in Petra, is believed to have been Aretas' mausoleum.

Selge, Pisidia, c. 2nd - 1st Century B.C.

|Pisidia|, |Selge,| |Pisidia,| |c.| |2nd| |-| |1st| |Century| |B.C.||chalkous|
Selge, Pisidia on the southern slope of Mount Taurus where the river Eurymedon (Kprcay) forces its way through the mountains, was once the most powerful and populous city of Pisidia. Protected by precipices, torrents, and an army of 20,000 regarded as worthy kinsmen of the Spartans, Selge was never subject to a foreign power until Rome. In the 5th century A.D., Zosimus calls it a little town, but it was still strong enough to repel a body of Goths. The remains of the city consist mainly of parts of the encircling wall and of the acropolis. A few traces have survived of the gymnasium, the stoa, the stadium and the basilica. There are also the outlines of two temples, but the best-conserved monument is the theater, restored in the 3rd century A.D.

German States, Principality of Brunswick-Wolfenbttel, Frederick Ulrich, 1613 - 1634

|Germany|, |German| |States,| |Principality| |of| |Brunswick-Wolfenbttel,| |Frederick| |Ulrich,| |1613| |-| |1634||3| |flitter|
Frederick Ulrich (German Friedrich Ulrich, 5 April 1591 ? 11 August 1634), Duke of Brunswick-Lneburg, was prince of Brunswick-Wolfenbttel from 1613 until his death. In March 1610 he visited his aunt Anne of Denmark in England, staying at St James Palace with Prince Henry, who took him to see the ship the Prince Royal being built at Woolwich. He performed in a tournament "running at the ring." He took a tour of the South West where news of the assassination of Henry IV of France reached him and ended his tour. After Prince Henry's death in 1612 the duke was sent a suit of gilt armour. He became ruling duke after the death of his father in 1613. In 1615, Frederick became involved in a war with the City of Brunswick, which was reluctant to recognize his overlordship. Between 1616 and 1622, he was de facto deposed by his mother, Elizabeth, with the help of her brother, King Christian IV of Denmark, because of his alcoholism. Because of Frederick's indecision and weakness, Brunswick was heavily ransacked during the Thirty Years' War ? both by the Catholic forces of Tilly and Pappenheim and by the Protestant forces of Christian of Denmark and Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden. The duke lost most of his territory during this time. He died after an accident in 1634. The principality was eventually ceded to Augustus the Younger in 1635.
