    Oooh that’s great knowledge! What was the second daughter of Saule called, and what planet did she rule? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ah, back after almost a year here ๐Ÿ™‚
    I just figured out on my own that Saule’s daughters were the rest of the 7 visible planets! Wow! And all female! And their names bear obvious, ancient connections to Hindu deities, though today those Hindu deities became totally male testosterone dripping machos ๐Ÿ™
    This just proves further to me how ancient a people the Lithuanians are. Much older than the rest of today’s “Indoeuropean” bastards that came later ๐Ÿ˜‰
