Tudor godparents

<< < (7/8) > >>

Lady Exeter was the wife of one of Edward IV's grandsons. Her son Edward was thought of as a possible husband for Mary I.

As to how Anne made her take part, well, I guess Gertrude could have had a 'diplomatic illness' but I think Anne would have made it clear 'if you don't come to court now, you needn't think about ever coming again.'  ;)

The Marquess was executed in 1538, what happened to Gertrude?

She died in 1558.

Gertrude was a close friend of Mary Tudor and she escorted her in her coronation in October 1553. She was very sad when her son Edward was involucrated in the Wyatt plot of 1554. He was sent to the Tower, but Mary released him a year later and forced him to go to Italy as an exile. He died there. In Padua, I think...
