Source Notes

Revel in AQ fall/54 quotes biographer Neumann, "The Life of Charlotte of Sweden" (Martin Harvey "Nativitas I" notes the quote of "vers minuit," but also quotes Bernard for the time of 8:46 PM LMT, 28 Leo ASC).

Until correction on 6-aug-2012 the date was wrong, because the Julian date 8 December had been entered as Gregorian.

RR was downgraded to C after this email note: I noticed that your source for this data was a biography written by "Neumann" titled Queen Charlotte of Sweden. Queen Charlotte of Sweden was born about 100 years after Queen Christina and it doesn't seem likely that Christina's birth time would be mentioned in Charlotte's biography. Since the quoted source is from 1954, I don't see much hope for finding the book (I checked WorldCat and found no listing) so I think this entry should be lowered from "B" to "C". What do you think?
