Rosa lucida (Redouté) - Rose

"Luzifer" ist der "Lichtbringer" (lat. "ferre" = dt. "tragen"), und geht mit bot. "lucida" zurück auf lat. "lux" = dt. "Licht", Gen. lat. "lucis". Die "leuchtende Rose" verdankt ihren Namen ihrer glänzenden Erscheinung.

der Fundort der "Rosa lucida" liegt in Nordamerika und einer ihrer weiteren Namen bringt sie mit dem US-Bundesstaat "Virginia" in Zusammenhang. Ein Schiff, das französische Siedler nach Amerika brachte, hat wohl einen Rosenstock mit nach Frankreich gebracht wo er dann im Garten von Malmaison landete und von Redouté gemalt werden konnte.

Shenandoah and Its Native American Roots
...
Hundreds of years ago a Native American chief named "Shenandoah" lived with his tribes in what is now the state of Virginia. Little is known about "Shenandoah", but in some way, the soft sound of his name was given to a river.

The "Shenandoah River" still flows in a deep valley between the Allegheny and Blue Ridge Mountains, just as it did when "Chief Shenandoah" lived. It is a slow moving river, soft and as beautiful as its name.

There are some word experts who believe the word "Shenandoah" means "spruce river" because the waters of the river run through great forests of spruce trees.

And this explanation could be correct.

However, there is an old Native American story which is far more beautiful than that of the experts.

Long ago, centuries before Europeans came to the New World, there was a great lake of sparkling blue water hidden in the mountains of Virginia. This lake was 250 kilometers long and 50 kilometers wide.

For hundreds of years, Native American tribes lived near this lake, feeding on the fish from its clean waters.

The Native Americans often climbed up the mountains and camped there during their long hunts for food. In the evenings they sat near their camp and looked down at the beautiful lake.

On a clear, starry night you could see thousands of stars shining and dancing on the water below. The Native Americans loved this lake, and because they could see the stars in it they called the lake, “Clear Daughter of the Stars.”

In their language, the word for this was "Shenandoah".

One day there was a loud crashing sound at one end of the lake. The lake started to disappear. Its water ran out of the valley, through a break in the mountain side. The waters ran on and on until they joined another river which today is known as the "Potomac".

At last, the lake was gone. In its place was only a river. It is this way today. The lake is gone, but the beautiful "Shenandoah River" runs on.

And on a clear night, anyone in the mountains can still see the stars dancing on the water.

"Shenandoah National Park", a place for nature lovers
...
"Shenandoah" is perhaps one of America’s most recognizable folk songs. Some say the song refers to the river. Others say it is about the daughter of "Chief Shenandoah".

1570-1580 wurden die niederländischen Rebellen von der englischen Königin Elisabeth I. aber auch die Hugenotten und die "Piraten" wie Francis Drake unterstützt. Die Piraten führten Privatkriege gegen Spanien und plünderten die aus Amerika zurückkehrenden Schiffe.

1584 nahm Walter Raleigh eine Region in Amerika in Besitz, die er nach der (angeblich) jungfräulichen Königin "Virginia" nannte. Von dort wurden Kartoffeln und Tabak nach England eingeführt.
