Queen Margaret placing a paper crown on the head of the Duke of York, c1450-c1460 (18th century(?)). Margaret of Anjou (1430-1482), Queen Consort of Henry VI of England with Richard Plantagenet, Duke of York (1411-1460). Their rivalry was a major catalyst for the Wars of the Roses. Richard governed England as Lord Protector during Henry's mental illness in 1453-1454 and held ambitions to take the throne for himself. After a lengthy power struggle, Richard was killed by Lancastian forces at the Battle of Wakefield in 1460. His head was displayed on a pike above Micklegate Bar in York, wearing a paper crown. His son took the throne as King Edward IV the following year after the Yorkists decisively defeated the Lancastrians at the Battle of Towton

Mud is sifted after having gone through a derrick in Noville near Montreux May 5, 2010. The Swiss company Petrosvibri is drilling in search of an hydrocarbon deposit under the Lake Leman and estimates its chance of discovery to 20 percent to find natural gas, the volume it expects to find would cover the Swiss national consumption for 20 years. If nothing is found the site could be used to store CO2, an agreement has been signed with the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in Lausanne to conduct further research.
