January 15th in the Lords’ year of 1559, Elizabeth I, daughter of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, had her coronation. After a strategically long wait since Mary’s death and burial on the 14th of December, 1558, Elizabeth’s celebrated accession began on the 14th of January. In a series of pageants, Elizabeth boasted about her strictly English genealogy (as opposed to Mary who was half Spanish through her mother) along with several other demonstrative pageant meant to display Elizabeth’s current and future greatness. Her actual coronation took place the next day and was a clever combination of Old Catholic Rituals and New Protestant Regulations to accommodate both Elizabeth’s personal beliefs and England’s Catholic population.
And finally, a fuckyeah blog for the world's most misunderstood monarch hast arisen!
We all know Henry Tudor the Eight of England as the grotesque, red-headed and bearded womanizer that he became in the last 18 months of his life but my goal will be to bring the truth to all who chose to visit this blog and to prove that while he was a monarch, he was a man also with his own share of insecurities and a jaded childhood that influenced his reign perhaps more then it should have.
