After the death of Henry VIII, his three legitimate children became rulers of England. Edward VI died of tuberculosis at age fifteen to be followed by Mary I or “Bloody Mary” for her burning of Protestants at the stake. She had two phantom pregnancies, but no child. After Mary’s death from cancer, Elizabeth I succeeded. Having watched her father control all six wives and execute two, she never married. As a “Virgin Queen” she played one royal suitor against another to avoid war while building England into a formidable nation. When war did come in the form of the Spanish Armada in 1588, she addressed her troops in full armor. “I know I have the body of a weak and feeble woman, but I have the heart and stomach of a king, and of a king of England too.” Join us for a final journey into the Tudor period when lead-based cosmetics killed, assassins poisoned gloves destined for royalty, houses were built in the shape of an “E” to flatter Elizabeth, and cockle shells and silver bells in the nursery rhyme “Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary” refer to implements of torture.
