They have long been famed for their love of lavish banquets and rich recipes. But what is less well known is that the British royals also had a taste for human flesh. A new book on medicinal cannibalism has revealed that possibly as recently as the end of the 18th century British royalty swallowed parts of the human body. The author adds that this was not a practice reserved for monarchs but was widespread among the well-to-do in Europe.



My brother sent me this article and i found it rather disturbing (Doesn't surprise me) , I thought some of you might like to read this.



One thing we are rarely taught at school yet is evidenced in literary and historic texts of the time is this: James I refused corpse medicine; Charles II made his own corpse medicine; and Charles I was made into corpse medicine.


Please let me know what you guys think , enjoy

I saw this in The Mail the other day.

It also says that a lot of poor Europeans used to also indulge in cannibalism.
I would imagine all races once consumed each other for one reason or another.

Did or do they eat human flesh? It depends on if they wanted to. Absolute power corrupts absolutely so its very difficult to believe that morals could stop them from breaking laws or taboos. Any one of us would do the same. Making someone that powerful is Not doing them any favors. It's condemning them to damnation if anything. The worst in them will be allowed to flourish. But like a drug addict, they won't admit this, they'll do anything to convince you that giving them their drug is the best thing for everybody.

Given the amount of times my knuckles have ended up mangled in the cheese grater, the partaking of human flesh must be quite usual in my home too..

I only just found this Historical Research and it is intriguing if morbid.

The following is one of real interest:


'Over in continental Europe, where the axe fell routinely on the necks of criminals, blood was the medicine of choice for many epileptics.

'In Denmark the young Hans Christian Andersen saw parents getting their sick child to drink blood at the scaffold. So popular was this treatment that hangmen routinely had their assistants catch the blood in cups as it spurted from the necks of dying felons.

'Occasionally a patient might shortcut this system. At one early sixteenth-century execution in Germany, 'a vagrant grabbed the beheaded body "before it had fallen, and drank the blood from him..".'

The last recorded instance of this practice in Germany fell in 1865.

Than at the same time the courts of Europe were destroying 90% of the population of S America had pretty much already done the same in North America, and were calling Africans Savages and enslaving them.
