Year 1505

Rennes - Bretagne (France)

In 1505 in England King Henry VIII repudiated his engagement to Catherine of Aragon, in Germany Martin Luther started his monastic life entering an Augustinian cloister, Portuguese explorers sacked towns in East Africa, Ivan III of Russia died, Giorgione in Venice painted “ The Storm”, in Rome they started building St. Peter’s Cathedral.

We have not any historical record for Northern America and still nobody (except the local aborigines) had idea that another continent, which would have been called Australia, existed somewhere.

In 1505 this house was built in Rennes.
