Countess Antonia Vandernath Hoyos born, lived in Kosice sometimes at the beginning of the 19th century. Her husband's name was Henryk Vandernath. Here in Humennom had a mansion that served as a summer residence.

The people used to say this legend:

Antónia expelled from Kosice in 1831 because it was waiting illegitimate child, which bore the elm (2km north of Humenného) and gave its name Johanna. The elm apparently knew people who worked in the castle, another source again states that the child's father was a teacher of Brestova. The exact truth will probably never know. Antonia was then only 16 years old.

This year was a near Humennom cholera. Countess Antonia wanted after fleeing from Kosice refuge in the castle in Humennom, it is her but failed and was banished to the fact that she and the child are infected. Dies and the daughter is likely in the forest, near the former nomadic journey to Brestova.

At this point is still grave. According to various historical and ancestral records are apparently not buried, but there is only a cairn in memory of her.

This is an overview of Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.

The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.

Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".

Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.

Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights.

In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states.
