    1848 · The March Unrest

    Age 7

    The March Unrest, or the Marsoroligheterna, was a series of riots in Stockholm in March 1848, due to news of the French Revolution. As a mob gathered and plundered shops on March 19, the militia fired shots and 18 deaths. The army arrived on March 21 for reinforcement and terminated any further rioting.

    Name Meaning

    In Ireland this has been used as an Anglicized form of Eithne . The name occurs in the apocryphal Book of Tobit, where it is the name of the mother of Sarah and stepmother of Tobias. This is said to be from Hebrew ῾ednah ‘pleasure, delight’, and if so it is connected with the name of the Garden of Eden . The earliest known uses of the given name in England are in the 16th century, when it was probably imported from Ireland, although the spelling Ednah supports the idea that it was taken from the Bible.
