We know so little about him that it will always be possible to come up with these kinds of theories and we will never prove or disprove any unless some major document is discovered, which is highly unlikely.

Btw if any of you are interested there's going to be a live show tonight on BBC2 (8:30 pm UK time)... has a great cast like Ian McKellen (Gandalf), Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock), David Tennant (Doctor Who), Prince Charles, etc. Not sure what exactly will be going on but I'll probably be watching.

Captured in 1575, released in 1580... he was inspired there for some characters in his famous novel "Don Quixote". He was 24 when captured.

100 years ago today, the Easter Rising in Dublin began, lasting for almost a week.

Wikipedia wrote:Organised by a seven-man Military Council of the Irish Republican Brotherhood,[3] the Rising began on Easter Monday, 24 April 1916, and lasted for six days. Members of the Irish Volunteers — led by schoolmaster and Irish language activist Patrick Pearse, joined by the smaller Irish Citizen Army of James Connolly and 200 women of Cumann na mBan — seized key locations in Dublin and proclaimed an Irish Republic. The British Army brought in thousands of reinforcements as well as artillery and a gunboat. There was fierce street fighting on the routes into the city centre, where the rebels put up stiff resistance, slowing the British advance and inflicting heavy casualties. Elsewhere in Dublin, the fighting mainly consisted of sniping and long-range gun battles. The main rebel positions were gradually surrounded and bombarded with artillery. There were isolated actions in other parts of Ireland, with attacks on the Royal Irish Constabulary barracks at Ashbourne, County Meath and in County Galway, and the seizure of the town of Enniscorthy, County Wexford. Germany agreed to send an arms shipment to the rebels, but the British had intercepted it just before the Rising began. Volunteer leader Eoin MacNeill had then issued a countermand in a bid to halt the Rising, which greatly reduced the number of rebels who mobilised.
