Nursery Rhymes, Are Actually True Stories

Recommended Posts

Hey, does anyone know the "true" origin of nursery rhymes? They are actually based on true events that took place during the 14th century. Nursery rhymes are used to imitate the royal, political events and people of that time, and covered it up by creating sweet little bed time stories people tell to their children! For instance: "Ring around the rosies, pocket full of posies, ashes, ashes, we all fall down"! That was based on the Bubonic plague that made children sick. The symptoms of this disease were rings around their bodies from decay so they would put flowers (posies) in their pockets to kill the smell. After the children died, the people whould burn them (ashes, ashes). "Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water, Jack fell down and lost his crown and Jill came tumbling after". This one is refers to King Louis XVI who was beheaded, and Queen Marie Antoinette who came tumbling after, was also beheaded! Isn't that a blip! I'm sure most of you saw the movie "Marie Antoinette", with Kirsten Dunst, Jack & Jill! And last but not least, "Mary, Mary, quite contrary how does your garden grow? with silver bells and cockle shells, and pretty little maids in a row". Well this is "quite contrary" to the real story. Mary Tudor was King Henry the VIII daughter and her garden is actually a graveyard. It increased in size (how does your garden grow) by executing people by the "maid" or "maiden"/guillotine, which is a device to behead which took alot of chopping to sever the head, so if you only could imagine the torture. Silver bells were also torture devices, that were placed on the thumbs to crush them. And cockle shells were devices that were attached to someones genitals. Sick! The *BLEEP* they used to do back then, and that's just to name a few, theres alot more where that came from. So you see these so called nursery rhymes are not so innocent as some people are made to think. Some people read this sick *BLEEP* to their children, and grandchildren. What do you guys think about nursery rhymes? and why do you think they were subliminally incorporated into children's stories?
