Email to a friend February 12, at 9: From the colourful bodice-ripper series The Tudors —10 to the flickering candlelight of Wolf Hall , we are reminded of the old mantra we learned at school: We might also be forgiven for thinking that the king was so busy keeping up with the women to whom he was legally united that he had little time for any others. Two of them in particular are known to us: Bessie is recorded as being one of eight in a masque performed to celebrate new year , partnered by Henry himself. Henry stayed at two of his nearby properties that summer, Havering-atte-Bowe aka Havering-atte-Bower in August and Beaulieu in September, which would have allowed him to visit his newborn son, had he been minded to do so.

Today, the government caved in an accepted its demands. Affirmative powers must be debated by MPs before they become law – yet negative powers become law before MPs get to look at them. The government had planned for most powers relating to EU law to be ‘negative’. Instead each law will now have to be laid before the committee for two weeks – 10 Parliamentary days – to decide if they should be upgraded to ‘affirmative’. Meanwhile the power balance on the crucial body could spark a major political row.

Officials today said they expected it to feature 16 MPs: That would leave the control of the committee on a knife-edge, because whichever party provides the chair could effectively lose out on a majority. Meanwhile some MPs may argue laws are still being made without enough scrutiny. So what are they? It’s all to do with the difference between what us geeks call primary and secondary legislation. Primary laws are Acts of Parliament and go through a long, line-by-line process of approval by MPs and the House of Lords.

The uncanny threshold is a concept derived from my personal experience of contemporary Australian architecture in the form of Lovett Bay House, the private home of architects Richard Leplastrier and Karen Lambert in New South Wales. This research argues that Lovett Bay House challenges Malpas’s view that the threshold is something that needs to be crossed, as a zone of transition, in order to be a threshold.

At Lovett Bay House, the absence of a conventional door, and the effective removal of the front wall, shifts the concept of the threshold as space of transition from inside to outside or vice versa to the threshold as a zone of habitation — a space in which one dwells.

The death of her father six days after her birth left Mary as queen of Scotland in her own right. Her mother saw to it that Mary was sent to France at age five. French now became her first language, and indeed in every other way Mary grew into a Frenchwoman rather than a Scot. By her remarkable beauty, with her tall, slender figure she was about 5 feet 11 inches , her red-gold hair and amber-coloured eyes, and her taste for music and poetry, Mary summed up the contemporary ideal of the Renaissance princess at the time of her marriage to Francis , eldest son of Henry and Catherine, in April Although it was a political match aimed at the union of France and Scotland, Mary was sincerely fond of her boy husband, though the marriage was probably never consummated.

The accession of Elizabeth Tudor to the throne of England in November meant that Mary was, by virtue of her Tudor blood, next in line to the English throne. She refused to acknowledge Mary as her heiress, however much Mary, nothing if not royal by temperament, prized her English rights. While Mary herself was a Roman Catholic, the official religion of Scotland had been reformed to Protestantism in her absence, and she thus represented to many, including the leading Calvinist preacher John Knox , a foreign queen of an alien religion.

Most difficult of all were the Scottish nobles; factious and turbulent after a series of royal minorities, they cared more for private feuds and self-aggrandizement than support of the crown. Nevertheless, for the first years of her rule, Mary managed well, with the aid of her natural half-brother James, earl of Moray , and helped in particular by her policy of religious tolerance.

Nor were all the Scots averse to the spectacle of a pretty young queen creating a graceful court life and enjoying her progresses round the country. Mary, Queen of Scots, engraving, Mary married the handsome Darnley recklessly for love.

Toponymy[ edit ] The place-name ‘Greenwich’ is first attested in a Saxon charter of , where it appears as Gronewic. The name means ‘green wic or settlement’ from the Latin ‘vicus’. However, Greenwich was divided into the registration subdistricts of Greenwich East and Greenwich West from the beginning of civil registration in , the boundary running down what is now Greenwich Church Street and Crooms Hill, although more modern references to “East” and “West” Greenwich probably refer to the areas east and west of the Royal Naval College and National Maritime Museum corresponding with the West Greenwich council ward.

My refusing to eat flesh occasioned an inconveniency, and I was frequently chid for my singularity. I made myself acquainted with Tryon’s manner of preparing some of his dishes, such as boiling potatoes or rice, making hasty pudding, and a few others, and then proposed to my brother, that if he would give me, weekly, half the money he paid for my board, I would board myself.

He instantly agreed to it, and I presently found that I could save half what he paid me. This was an additional fund for buying books.

New Statesman Why did Anne Boleyn have to die? By this time, the king had been married to the Spanish Catherine of Aragon for over fifteen years and, after six pregnancies, only a single child had survived, and that was a daughter: Educated in the Netherlands and France, the dark-eyed Anne was intelligent and stylish, in contrast to the much older Catherine, then past her fortieth birthday. In anticipation of more children, Henry instigated the divorce proceedings that would result in his breach with the Roman Catholic church, the displacement of an anointed Queen and his own excommunication.

All this for Anne. As if to make his point, Henry probably married her twice, first at the end of , and again the following January. She quickly fell pregnant but the child she bore in September was not the longed-for son, but a daughter, Elizabeth.

Peter ad Vincula at the Tower of London Anne’s Early Years For a woman who played such an important part in English history, we know remarkably little about her earliest years. Antonia Fraser puts Anne’s birth at or , probably at Blickling Norfolk and the date of birth seems to be at the end of May or early June. Other historians put Anne’s birth as late as or Anne spent part of her childhood at the court of the Archduchess Margaret.

Fraser puts her age at , as that was the minimum age for a ‘fille d’honneur’. Anne’s sister Mary was already in ‘the French Queen’s’ attendance.

A woman Henry VIII wanted to marry so much that he ignored the pope and started a reformation of the Church of England in order to divorce from his previous marriage. This relationship came out top due to the royal pair’s well-matched sexual appetite, openness with .

He was the second son and third child of his father, Henry VII. His elder brother Arthur died in April, , and consequently Henry became heir to the throne when he was not yet quite eleven years old. It has been asserted that Henry’s interest in theological questions was due to the bias of his early education, since he had at first been destined by his father for the Church.

But a child of eleven can hardly have formed lifelong intellectual tastes, and it is certain that secular titles, such as those of Earl Marshal and Viceroy of Ireland, were heaped upon him when he was five. On the other hand there can be no question as to the boy’s great precocity and as to the liberal scope of the studies which he was made to pursue from his earliest years.

After Arthur’s death a project was at once formed of marrying him to his brother’s widow, Catherine of Aragon, who, being born in December, , was more than five years his senior. The negotiations for a papal dispensation took some little time, and the Spanish Queen Isabella , the mother of Catherine, then nearing her end, grew very impatient.

Hence a hastily drafted Brief containing the required dispensation was privately sent to Spain in , to be followed some months later by a Bull to the same effect which was of a more public character. The existence of these two instruments afterwards caused complications. Owing, however, to some political scheming of Henry VII — who was trying to outwit his rival Ferdinand — Prince Henry, on attaining the age of fourteen, was made to record a formal protest against the proposed marriage with Catherine, as a matter arranged without his consent.

Still, when his father died in , Henry carried out the marriage nine weeks after his accession, he being then eighteen, and showing from the first a thorough determination to be his own master.

Share this article Share The country could also have become embroiled in religious turmoil as Elizabeth I was credited with religous settlement by founding the Church of England. The revelation has been unearthed by historian Elizabeth Norton who has re-examined royal records as part of an investigation into the life of Henry VIII’s famous mistress Bessie Blount. Mrs Norton discovered Elizabeth Tailboy’s was not the daughter of Bessie’s future husband Gilbert Tailboys as previously thought, but the secret lovechild of the King.

A picture of Henry VIII’s lock for his private apartments – he is said to have taken it everywhere and kept the key to himself Mrs Norton found Elizabeth was born between April and June , a year after her brother Henry, who was acknowledged as the King’s. Both children were conceived during a period when Henry VIII lived a few miles away from Bessie’s home and when he was known to visit her regularly. This was also two years before Bessie married Gilbert Tailboys who later gave Elizabeth his surname.

The date of Elizabeth’s birth made her younger than Mary I but older than Elizabeth, both of whom were also declared illegitimate by the King when he deemed his marriages to their mothers invalid. However, because he acknowledged them as his, they were included in the Tudor succession after Henry failed to produce further sons. The historian also noted the King paid particular attention to Elizabeth throughout his life, unusually adjudicating on court cases involving her and securing her financial interests.

After the accident — just before he became estranged from the second of his six wives, Anne Boleyn — the king, once sporty and generous, became cruel, vicious and paranoid, his subjects began talking about him in a new way, and the turnover of his wives speeded up. The accident occurred at a tournament at Greenwich Palace on 24 January when year-old Henry, in full armour, was thrown from his horse, itself armoured, which then fell on top of him.

He was unconscious for two hours and was thought at first to have been fatally injured. But, although he recovered, the incident, which ended his jousting career, aggravated serious leg problems which plagued him for the rest of his life, and may well have caused an undetected brain injury which profoundly affected his personality, according to the History Channel documentary Inside the Body of Henry VIII.

Soon after he obtained the papal dispensation required to allow him to marry his brother’s widow, Catherine of Aragon.

In the first years of his reign Henry VIII effectively relied on Thomas Wolsey to rule for him, and by Henry had elevated him to the highest role in government: In Pope Leo X conferred the title of Defender of the Faith on Henry for his book ‘Assertio Septem Sacramentorum’, which affirmed the supremacy of the Pope in the face of the reforming ideals of the German theologian, Martin Luther. Wolsey proved himself to be an outstanding minister in his organisation of the first French campaign and while the Scots saw this war as an opportunity to invade England, they were defeated at Flodden in However war with France ultimately proved expensive and unsuccessful.
