I would like to share this day ...although I didn't live it,my ancestors did.
The year 1453 29th May....In remembrance'
My great grandfather was be headed, or was that great,great grandfather?

There are many legends in Greece surrounding the Fall of Constantinople.
One of them holds that two priests saying divine liturgy over the crowd disappeared into the cathedral's walls as the first Turkish soldiers entered.
According to the legend, the priests will appear again on the day Constantinople returns to Christian hands.[61] Another legend refers to the Marble King, Constantine XI, holding that, when the Ottomans entered the city, an angel rescued the emperor, turned him into marble and placed him in a cave under the earth near the Golden Gate, where he waits to be brought to life again (a variant of the sleeping hero...


Legend or prophecy ?

Although this may seem 'out there' consider all the paranormal and weirdness 'Out there'.

The name Istanbul...

In remembrance of the fall of Constantinople!
There exists a legend as some would have it,that a marbled King(frozen) shall rise and Agia Sophia(Holy WISDOM is the name of the Church)shall once again be as it was in early Christianity.
This is also known as prophecy and is widely known among the Greek people.

According to the legend and the local traditions, the above course of events goes through the conflict to the Turks and the revival of Byzantium. These legends referred to the "marble king", who is six-fingered and has left an uncompleted work and will be resurrected, under God's help, in order to bring it into completion.

But who is this "marble King"? Which is his role referred to and how is it related to what is going to happen in the broader area?

Here is more information about the Marbled King!

Constantine XI Palaiologos was the last Christian Emperor of Constantinople and the Byzantine empire. In 1453, when Constantinople fell to the Ottoman Turks, he was last seen fighting at the city walls, but the actual circumstances of his death have remained surrounded in myth. In the years which followed it was said that he was not dead but sleeping - the 'immortal emperor' turned to marble, who would one day be awakened by an angel and drive the Turks out of his city and empire.
