His daughter, Elizabeth I, battled for succession and supremacy at home, and the discovery of "the round world" enabled a vast continent across the Atlantic to be explored.

Below we’ve put together a little pictorial guide showing his evolvement through the ages. The name Santa Claus has his roots in the informal Dutch name for St. Nicholas, Sinterklaas (an abbreviation of Sint Nikolaas). St. Nicholas was a historic 4th-century Greek saint (from an area now in modern day Turkey) who had a reputation for secret gift-giving, such as putting coins in the shoes left out for him. He was also famous for presenting the three impoverished daughters of a pious Christian with dowries so that they would not have to become prostitutes. A year before the New York Historical Society’s feast the author Washington Irving had written about Santa in his satirical fiction Knickerbocker’s History of New York, describing a jolly St. Nicholas character as opposed to the saintly bishop of yesteryear – one who flew in a reindeer pulled sleigh and delivered presents down chimneys.
Once there lived a judge (судья). The king of the country heard so much about Judge Sheba that one day he said, "Everybody says that Sheba is the cleverest judge of my country. I want to see him myself. The king put on some poor clothes, took a horse and went to the town where the judge lived. On the way to the town he met a man. The man had no horse and had to walk. "Now I shall see how clever Judge Sheba is," he thought. When they came to the judge, they had to wait for their turn. The judge had some other cases (дело). The first was a case of a teacher and a farmer. They brought a slave with them, and each man said that the slave was his. Judge Sheba listened to them, and told them to leave the slave with him and to come back next morning. The second was a case of an oilman (продавец масла) and a worker.
