Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • deaths - Cessation of life processes of all living organisms, but particularly refers to the act as it occurs in individual human beings.
  • engravings - Prints on paper incorporating impressions of a reverse design created on a printing plate, usually copper, into which the design has been incised (engraved) using burins or gravers. Historically, "engravings" has sometimes been incorrectly used to refer to all prints, regardless of the specific technique. For prints made from designs engraved on a flat wooden block, use "wood cuts"; for prints made from a plate that is etched rather than engraved, use "etchings."

  • history and legend
  • kings - Monarchs who reign over a kingdom, which is a major territorial unit or government ruled by a single person. The term may also refer to rulers of smaller entities and may include tribal rulers or rulers of petty states who are by tradition called "king." If kings rule over a territory that is contained within an empire, kings are typically subordinate to the emperor. Kings are always male; female rulers of kingdoms are called "queens."
  • mourning - The feeling or expression of grief or sorrow, along with the ritual observances accompanying a death.
