Elizabeth I imageAll three share an important newsworthy anniversary on November 25th.

Want to know more about the Mirabel Sisters, Elizabeth I, and Agatha Christie? Read on to find out about these and other interesting tales that happened on November 25th.

         1487 – Elizabeth of York is crowned Queen of England. Her image is widely believed to be the model for the queen on playing cards.

         1960 – Three of the four Mirabal sisters (Minerva, Patria, and Maria Teresa) of the Dominican Republic are assassinated for their clandestine activities and active resistance to the Rafael Trujillo ("el jefe") dictatorship.

The fourth Mirabel sister, Dede, died of natural causes in 2014. Their lives were commemorated in the novel and movie . "In the Time of the Butterflies".

While the Mirabel Sisters, Elizabeth I, and Agatha Christie on November 25th have nothing to do with my real estate business selling Silicon Valley homes to families in San Jose, Cupertino and Saratoga in Santa Clara County, Calif., they add fun and entertainment to life.
