served as regent for her younger son, Charles Philip, Duke of Södermanland, in the Duchy of Södermanland from 1611 to 1622. She also managed the iron mine (Mining)s of her spouse and took an active interest in business. During her son's first years as king in the 1610s, she was considered by some the real, or one of the real, rulers behind the throne during his minority, even though she was not formally regent. She certainly acted as advisor for her son: for example, he asked for her

He was a product of a local primary school and Minehead Grammar School. Later on, Chorley began studying Geomorphology as an undergraduate at the School of Geography at Oxford, where he went up to Exeter College (Exeter College, Oxford) after service with the Royal Engineers. Here he was greatly influenced by R.P. Beckinsale, who advised Chorley to go on to graduate study in the United States. He made a transatlantic move in 1951 as a Fulbright Scholar to Columbia University where he was a graduate student in the Geology Department and explored the quantitative approach to land form evolution. *South Somerset *Taunton Deane and West Somerset

Destined for the rabbinate, he received his Talmudic education from Jacob of Lissa and Rabbi Akiva Eiger of Posen. After his marriage he left Lissa and settled in Toruń, where he spent the rest of his life. Here he took an active interest in the affairs of the Jewish community, and for more than forty years held the office of ''Rabbinatsverweser'' ("acting rabbi"). Disinterestedness was a prominent feature of his character; he refused to accept any remuneration for his services. His wife, by means of a small business, provided their meager subsistence. He has been described as "the real founder of modern Zionism" 1 . birth_date in extent, ceded by the Kingdom of Saxony, with the addition of some districts already belonging to Prussia, the most important of which are the Altmark, from which the State of Prussia sprang; the former immediate principalities of the Archbishop of Magdeburg and of the Bishop of Halberstadt, which Prussia had received by the Peace of Westphalia (1648) at the close of the Thirty Years' War; and the Eichsfeld, with the city of Erfurt and its surroundings. Up to 1802 the Eichsfeld and Erfurt had belonged to the principality of the Archbishop of Mainz; a large of the population had, therefore, retained the Catholic Faith during the Reformation. As regards ecclesiastical affairs the Province of Saxony had been assigned to the Diocese of Paderborn by the papal bull ''De salute animarum'' of 16 July 1821. The province contained three ecclesiastical administrative divisions: the episcopal commissariat of Magdeburg that embraced the entire governmental department of Magdeburg and consisted of four deaneries and 25 parishes; the "ecclesiastical Court" of Erfurt, which included the governmental Department of Merseburg and the eastern half of the governmental Department of Erfurt; and consisted of 2 deaneries (Halle and Erfurt) and 28 parishes; the episcopal commissariat of Heiligenstadt, which embraceed the western half of the governmental department of Erfurt, that is called the Upper Eichsfeld, and consisted of 16 deaneries and 129 parishes. :::As to voivod(e)ship, I believe it's harmless and has the merit of being used almost universally as the English equivalent of Polish ''województwo''. Contrary to ''province'', which in Poland is used to refer to quite a different type of administrative unit (Province of Posen, for instance), it is 100% unambigous. The case of powiat is a tad more complex as there is no universally accepted version and, as our chat at WikiProject Geography of Poland has shown, we could as well use the terms of ''district'', ''county'', ''prefecture'' and perhaps even more. I believe the historical arguments for using ''powiat'' instead of ''county'' (''hrabstwo'' in Polish) are quite serious and we could go either way here. However, lately we (me and Balcer) finally settled the problem of double naming by moving all of the ''county'' articles to ''powiat of XXX'' scheme and fixing the List of Polish powiats page. The solution is far from perfect, but it's at least consistent.
