[Resources] The Russian Crown Jewels' Ireland Vacation

Didn't know that, did you? The Russian Crown Jewels were in Ireland from 1920 to 1950, the vast majority of time in a soap box in Harry Boland's mother's pantry before they were turned over to the Irish Government in 1938, after which they were locked in a safe until "re-discovered" in 1948. They didn't travel back to Russia until 1950.

Why do you suppose that for 30 years they went from hidden to lost to found? 30 years. That's about right for a fellow (or gal) to grow up, under their protection. Maybe a lost heir to the Russian Throne.
