Do you share a birthday or any important event with any significant historical Tudor event?

I have:

My son shares a birthday with Sir Thomas More (Feb. 7th)

One of my nieces shares a birthday with Mary I (Feb. 18th)

My daughter was born on the anniversary of Henry Fitzroy's death (July 22nd)

My anniversary is on the anniversary of Margaret Tudor's death (Oct. 18th)

My best friend's daughter was born on the anniversary of Prince Arthur's death (April 2nd)

 

I just typed in Important Dates in Tudor History into Google and found several websites.

I came up with a big fat nothing, too, Artemis. Mine's January 8th, and the closest is Katharine of Aragon dying on January 7th. In my lifetime, I share(d) a birthday with David Bowie and Elvis Presley! And no, I can't sing. Cry

I have come up short when searching for my own birthday, but my boyfriend was born on the day Bluff King Hal married Katherine of Aragon (June 11th), which is something I have mentioned to him more than a dozen times (He never seems all that interested in the connection…bummer. lol).

The only thing that happened on my birthday within the Tudor timeline is that Anne, Duchess Of Brittany, married Maximilian 1st, Holy Roman Emperor ( by proxy ) in 1490. Not much of a link to the Tudors, but it does give a link to a member on this site, so that's something.

The only things I could find that was “Tudor-ish” related was ….. 19th October

 

  • 1469Ferdinand II of Aragon marries Isabella I of Castile, a marriage that paves the way to the unification of Aragon and Castile into a single country, Spain.
  • 1512Martin Luther becomes a doctor of theology (Doctor in Biblia).
  • Why not join my page on Facebook – Tudor Dynasty

    I do share my birthday with an obnoxious, abusive drunk not fit for the position he was fortunate enough to get – the ‘charming’ Henry Stewart, Lord Darnley, second husband of Mary, Queen of Scots. Lucky me Frown

     

    Aside from that:

    1533 – Elizabeth Barton – the ‘Holy Maid of Kent’ – and certain associates were forced to do public penance in Canterbury.

    1549 – Rebel Robert Kett (of ‘Kett’s rebellion’) was hanged from the walls of Norwich Castle.

    1545 – Discussions regarding the renewal and reform of the Schmalkaldic League began.

    1568 – James Stewart, first earl of Moray (half-brother of Mary, Queen of Scots and, briefly, regent for James VI), presented the English with the famous ‘Casket Letters’ to be used against his sister.

     

    Of course the most famous event on my birthday happened some centuries later….

    A date that will live in infamy, but I think FDR was referring to something other than your birthday Nasim.Wink

    St Andrew's Day! Here are some of your Tudor events:

     

    1529 – Henry VIII had a massive row with Katherine of Aragon whilst they are dinning privately, after she insisted on her first marriage being unconsummated and his actions against their own union being unreasonable. Infuriated by her words, Henry storms out and seeks Anne Boleyn’s presence. Anne later tells him he should have known better than to argue with Katherine, for ‘whenever you disputed with the Queen, she was sure to have the upper hand’'.

     

    1554 – Cardinal Reginald Pole, newly returned to England, formally absolved the realm of its sins (e.g. leaving the Catholic Church) and welcomed England back to the Church, in a ceremony before parliament. A highly emotional event during which Queen Mary I, and many peers, wept tears of joy.

     

    Also in 1554 – Birth of Sir Philip Sidney, son of Sir Henry Sidney and Mary (daughter of John Dudley, duke of Northumberland, sister of Guilford and Robert Dudley and thus sister-in-law of Lady Jane Grey) at Penshurst, Kent. He went on to become a rather heroic figure –a notable solider and accomplished poet.

     

    1558 – Elizabeth Howard, duchess of Norfolk (wife of Thomas Howard, third duke of Norfolk and thus Anne Boleyn’s aunt) died.

     

     

    (Plus – under Edward VI, St Andrew’s Day becomes a less revered occasion. Under Mary I, it once again became a solemn occasion, celebrated with much fanfare. There is a nice description of the day in 1553 in contemporary John Stow’s Chronicle)

    My sister-in-law's anniversarry is January 8th!  And I had a HUGE crush on a boy in elementary school whose birthday was January 8th.  None of them can sing, either, if it makes you feel any better 😀

    My son's birthday:

    Sept. 19th 1486  Arthur, Prince of Wales is born.

    Nothing for my birthday: October 31st.  But it is celebrated every year.

    Given that it is my birthday, some element of solemnity – or should I say reverence –  is of course required Wink *polishes halo*

    Sharon, yours is one of the key dates in history! On October 31st 1517, Martin Luther nailed the 95 thesis to the castle door in Wittenberg, thus sparking the reformation! Cool
