Is this allowed on /cm/? Basically, just some historical fanart or depictions of handsome males o' yore.I will start: With the surprisingly handsome and very cute, young Napoleon Bonaparte.
While on the subject of French rulers, here is an obligatory Philip the Fair.
An adorable shota painting by Thomas Lawrence.The boy depicted was 7 when the painting was made. Unfortunately he only lived to be 13 due to tuberculosis.
>Is this allowed on /cm/?>>3279425 No you illiterate faggot, but before we either get moved to /his/ or get 404'd here's Marcus Aurelius when he was a child.
>>3823709These are animated males and they are cute though! They're painted fanarts from their timeframe...

Paul Verlaine and Arthur Rimbaud
Edward II and his favourite Piers Gaveston
The Death of Joseph Bara (1794)Joseph Bara (lol) was a French drummer boy who died in the Revolution. This painting was made to commemorate him
The Youth of Aristotle (1875) by Charles Degeorge
Saint Francis of Assisi in Ecstasy (1595) by Caravaggio
David (c. 1440) by DonatelloThere are anecdotes from the time concerning Donatello's interest in males>Donatello took particular delight in having beautiful apprentices. Once someone brought him a boy who had been praised as particularly beautiful. But when the same person showed Donatello the boy's brother and claimed he was even prettier, the artist replied, 'the shorter will be his stay with me!'Poliziano, Detti Piacevoli
'Boy with Thorn' -- one of very few surviving ancient Roman bronze statues

'Non angli, sed angeli' (1877) by Keeley Halswelle>It is said that one day, when some merchants had lately arrived at Rome, many things were exposed for sale in the market place, and much people resorted thither to buy: Gregory himself went with the rest, and saw among other wares some boys put up for sale, of fair complexion, with pleasing countenances, and very beautiful hair. When he beheld them, he asked, it is said, from what region or country they were brought? and was told, from the island of Britain, and that the inhabitants were like that in appearance. He again inquired whether those islanders were Christians, or still involved in the errors of paganism, and was informed that they were pagans. Then fetching a deep sigh from the bottom of his heart, “Alas! what pity,” said he, “that the author of darkness should own men of such fair countenances; and that with such grace of outward form, their minds should be void of inward grace.” He therefore again asked, what was the name of that nation? and was answered, that they were called Angles. “Right,” said he, “for they have an angelic face, and it is meet that such should be co-heirs with the Angels in heaven"St Bede the Venerable (Ecclesiastical History of the English People)

c’mon, anons, how has this statue of napoleon not been posted yet? he looks so sweet and pathetic
>>3826419Sounds like an Anglo tooting his own horn
Painting depicted a scene from one of Plato's Socratic dialogues>SOCRATES: I saw inside his cloak and caught fire, and could possess myself no longer; and I thought none was so wise in love-matters as Cydias, who in speaking of a beautiful boy recommends someone to "beware of coming as a fawn before the lion, and being seized as his portion of flesh"; for I too felt I had fallen a prey to some such creature.Plato, Charmides 155d
>>3823613A cute. UN MIGNON!
>>3826422>>3826993He was so historically awkward, autistic and cute. Even when he "hit the wall", his brother Joseph mentioned he had a baby face.
Self-Portrait, Charles Saligo, 1824 - 1826.>>3826413This statue was the first example I thought of when I saw the thread subject. The combination of nudity + hat + boots is rather erotic. If you look at the statue from behind, the wing on Goliath's helmet is sitting against David's inner thigh.

>It is unclear what happened to the boys after the last recorded sighting of them in the tower. It is generally assumed that they were murdered; a common hypothesis is that the murder was commissioned by Richard III

>>3823648>tfw an angry midget overthrows your monarchy
>>3823613Somewhat related, but there is a manga about an emo femboy hermaphrodite Richard III called Requiem of the Rose King based off Shakespeare's plays. Worth the read for how hilariously bonkers the story gets.

>>3832103I always imagine King Arthur as young and boyish, and his knights are like a secret club. I got this image from reading Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.>But Arthur would not eat till all were served. He was so merry in his mirth, and somewhat childlike in his manner; his life pleased him well; he loved little either to lie long or to sit long, so busied him his young blood and his wild brain. And another custom moved him also ... he would never eat upon such a dear day before he was told an uncouth tale of some adventurous thing, of some great marvel that he could believe,Then the Green Knight shows up and insults him.>Arthur knew how to answer, and said: “Sir courteous knight, if it is battle that thou cravest, thou shalt not fail of a fight here.”>“Nay, I demand no fight; in faith I tell thee there are but beardless children about on this bench. If I were hasped in arms on a high steed there is no man here to match me, their might is so weak. Therefore I crave in this court a Christmas gameKing Arthur flushes>With this he laughed so loud that the lord grieved; the blood shot for shame into his fair face. He waxed as wroth as the wind; and so did all that were there. The king so keen of mood then stood near that proud man.Imagine how disappointed I was with how ugly the movie was :(

>>3833787I love reading older french revolution centered bios and coming across descriptions of Saint Just written by stuffy historians that sounds like something out of a melodramatic 70's romance novel

why are there no black men in this thread
>>3834086Evariste Galois, first (second?) to discover Group Theory, proved the impossibility of a general formula for quintic equations, was imprisoned for publicly demanding the King's head in post-napoleonic france, developed an unrequited crush on a girl after leaving to a halfway house, died in a duel at the age of 20.
>>3836470sweet jesus those handsthey remind me of tree roots, does he guard the erdtree?

>>3839139idk, when he was younger he was poor, often depressed, had scabies, was sleeping with prostitutes, ect. most of that had stopped by the time he was general bonaparte but he was also a huge simp for josephine in the first year or so of their marriage, she wasn't really as into him as he was her. I'm not saying this to slander him it's just true </3
>>3839315he is just like me fr

>>3834735De Sade himself was rather pretty before they refused to allow him to exercise in prison and he gorged himself on chocolate cakes. He was also a fan of anal dildos, so there's that.

>>3826408I hate these 2 retards. Idiotic poesy and lifestyle. Actually a typical gay story. An old cringe man molested a teen. Fag is always pedo.
>>3831537Surprised no one has posted this one yet
>>3842715this one was based on a real event right? i dont know much of pre industrial japan so forgive me
>>3842728Yeah, the Shimabara Rebellion. As far as I know it's the only christian uprising in the history of Japan

>>3849099the saint sebastian one is a mishima thing
>>3823613>>3823645reading about Napoleon and Alexander I think there is something deeply moving about the relationship between a general and his men. It's hard to imagine but considering what some of these men went through at times it has to have been a very strong emotional connection
>>3849398specially these little episodes where wavering loyalty is reaffirmed.like Julius Caesar pretending to retire his most loyal legion only for them to fall over themselves to regain his approval or Alexander showing the scars he obtained in the mutual struggles on campaign with his troops making them feel bad for considering mutiny.just tugs at the heartstrings idk
>>3834086omg reading this entire thread up to this post I was like "I should post galois I should post galois" and you already did it
>>3849246St. Sebastian has been a gay icon for a lot longer than Mishima has been around. Perverted monks have been jacking off to him forever, portrayals of him the perfect cover for painting and sculpting the male form twisted and contorted with "agonized" expressions.
