- Gray Reisfield, niece and confidante of Greta Garbo, dies at 85
By Sam Whiting - Monday Jul 10, 2017
Gray Reisfield, niece and sole heiress to the estate of the reclusive Swedish screen star Greta Garbo, has died.“Kata (family nickname for Garbo) taught my mother to swim in the Pacific Ocean,” said Derek Reisfield.At about the time she was meeting stars with her aunt, she changed her name just as her aunt had done, from Ann-Marguerite to the easier to handle Gray.From Los Angeles, the family moved to the Santa Fe artists community, and Mrs. Reisfield rode a horse 3 miles or more to Santa Fe High School, from which she graduated in 1950.Always academic, she went east for college at Bryn Mawr and advanced from there to Yale Law School, where she was among three women in her class.[...] Garbo (born Greta Lovisa Gustafson), was still considered one of the great screen goddesses of the 20th century, but she hadn’t made a film since the comedy flop “Two-Faced Woman” in 1941.Garbo turned her back on Hollywood and was trying to turn her back on her public in New York City, where she took refuge.“Kata would come visit us fairly often, either by car and driver, and very often she took the bus,” said Derek Reisfield.“She was quite canny,” said Reisfield, a management consultant, technology investor and co-founder of MarketWatch, the financial news and information site.The estate closed in 1994, but Mrs. Reisfield continued on as the unpaid guardian of the Garbo legend.Mrs. Reisfield did interviews, was featured in a television documentary and was an adviser to Garbo museum exhibits in New York and Santa Barbara.

- ‘Game of Thrones': Clues About the Ironborn and House Greyjoy From Real Viking History (Guest Blog)

Ironborn military power is underpinned by their slender, beautifully designed warships which allow them to strike at will along the Westerosi coastline, and so it’s tempting to compare them with the Vikings, the medieval Scandinavian raiders who brought terror to Europe for three centuries.When he discovers that Theon’s splendid neck chain was bought rather than stolen, Balon tears it from his son’s neck, snarling, “That bauble around your neck, did you pay the iron-price for it, or the gold?” Balon clearly is not the kind of medieval Scandinavian king who would be celebrated by his court poets (skalds) for distributing treasure; no one would praise him as a “breaker of rings” or a “thrower of gold” or even a “hater … of the flame-red dragon square,” to cite just a few of Old Norse poetry’s terms for the generous king.The military successes of the Viking-age Scandinavians — settling northern England, founding Dublin and establishing the duchy of Normandy — were possible because their ships could travel far up the great rivers of Europe.The Great Army which swept across northern England in 865 A.D. took horses from those they defeated and thus were mobile enough to achieve military success inland, away from the rivers and coastlines where they easily could regroup on their ships.The Ironborn’s faith is very different from any version of Viking religion that we know of, but their belief in life after death closely resembles a watery version of Valhalla, the god Odin’s great hall, where the valkyries bring heroes who die in battle.When Yara and Theon sailed to Meereen to put their 50 ships at the disposal of Daenerys Targaryen for her long-anticipated invasion of Westeros, Daenerys agreed to support Yara’s claim to the Salt Chair, the Ironborn throne.The Vikings may have left their homelands because population pressure made it hard for them to sustain a living by agriculture on the thin soils and limited flatlands of the Norwegian or Icelandic fjords.For most of the Viking Age, Vikings were already successful traders, dealing in foodstuffs, timber, furs, falcons and slaves all across the North Atlantic, settling into lives as merchants and craftsmen in thriving towns such as Bergen and Trondheim.
