I know plenty of Scots, Irish and Welsh and none of them were taught their native languages.
Well I made a mistake on that, but it would only make sense that Henry VIII murder his son (Henry Fritroy) if he had a legitimate heir according to the book on Fritzroy. Anyway, it seems like Henry wasn't too concerned about Fritroy's death, judging from his simple and rushed arrangement on his furneral. Especially since he was an Earl and natural son of the king.
This has already been thoroughly debunked in this thread. But really. Henry may not have been an especially nice guy, but nowhere has it been seriously written that he might go aroung murdering his own children, legitimate or not, just because he had a legitimate heir (which of course, he didn't at the time of Richmond's death). It does NOT make sense. At ALL.
There may (or may not) have been a certain amount of pressure to "get rid" of Mary from the Boleyn faction- but there is no evidence that Henry ever considered this- he was fond of all his children, in his way.
In the new bio about Richmond. He sort of died after Edward VI was born. It was even suggested that he was poisoned.
Yes. It is interesting that Mary was fertile while Anne had such difficulty in having a child. That came to an end (finding an heir) when Edward was born, even though he was sickly. To think about it, all Henry VIII's children had some sort of aliment. From Richmond, Mary I, Edward VI to even Elizabeth I. That is not a healthy family, his sister Margaret Tudor's line was more robust in health.
No Prince Lieven was right. I did mean Charles II's bastard. In history bastardy does not always debar one from the throne or succession. The Beauforts were legitimized bastards, but Henry VII's weak claim to the throne came from his mother Margaret Beaufort. That Elizabeth I must brought into mind, when she refused to pardon Essex. Also William the Conquerer was a bastard too. Now is actually easier, a strand of the Carey's children 's hair or DNA and compared that to Henry VIII or Mary I can solve the mystery.
Nor was the Duke of Monmouth as you would remember. He was Henry VIII's natural grandson by Mary Boleyn.
