Question 488: Not Very Lucrative, I'm afraid..

Text(A)

'In Tarquin's likeness I did entertain thee:
Hast thou put on his shape to do him shame?
To all the host of heaven I complain me,
Thou wrong'st his honour, wound'st his princely name.
Thou art not what thou seem'st; and if the same,
Thou seem'st not what thou art, a god, a king;
For kings like gods should govern everything.




The Bearded One(B)


Okay. You see a piece of text from an insignificant piece of literature, written by someone really jobless. It might help to know who he is, though, mind you. Call the verse __A__
Then you see a picture. Call him ___B___
If you connect A&B, chances are there that you'll find a particular incident as a the connect.

Call the connect __X___
As a result of __X___ , something quite historic happened. Maybe the first of its kind?
Call this historic event___Y___

Just give me X and Y
