Today’s treats for you!

Posted By on December 2, 2019

Happy Monday! Yes, that may be a contradiction in terms, but I’m sure we all have something to be thankful for this Monday! And I’ve got some treats for you today!

Today’s Anne Boleyn Files Advent treat is waiting for you behind number 2 at https://www.theanneboleynfiles.com/advent2019/. It’s of a poetical nature today and thank you so much to Natasha Gennady Robinson for sharing it with us.

The second treat is 25% off online history courses. Yes, MedievalCourses.com has jumped on the Cyber Monday bandwagon by offering 25% off each and every one of their history courses. There are 11 to choose from so you’re bound to find something to enjoy. They’re all online and have no set start or finish date, so you can buy now and begin whenever suits you. You can also use the coupon code CYBER2019 to get 25% off a gift certificate for a loved one. The collection of course includes a few Tudor ones too! See https://medievalcourses.com/cyber-monday-deal-25-off-all-our-courses/ for details.

The third treat is Teasel’s Tudor Trivia. We’ve only had Teasel for 2 weeks, but she’s decided to help out the household by doing some YouTube videos, after all, she has quite a few months of catching up to do with all of those cat cameos! These videos are posting daily on the Anne Boleyn Files and Tudor Society YouTube channel until 24th December, and here is the latest one:

And then, of course, there’s my daily “on this day” video!

    Poor Henry Howard, Earl of Surrey, arrested on trumped up charges of treason. He had every right to display the arms which he did and he had made certain the beasts were collared. Henry Viii knew full well many of these older families had a royal pedigree which entitled them to use arms similar to the crown, as long as they put them in the second quarter. The Howards certainly were not the only ones showing off their arms. He was also meant to have plotted to take control of Prince Edward but this wasn’t the case. No it is more likely that he was set up by the Seymour family and others who wanted the old guard out of their way. He was a bit of a rogue, fighting and breaking windows and being put in prison but he was also a poet, soldier and thinker. Howard tried to escape down the loo shaft in his room in the Tower but was caught and dragged back up. This in itself could have condemned him. It was very difficult to find anything against him, his defence was very vigorous and the Jury were reluctant to find him guilty. However, they were more or less forced to proceed and certainly they did protest. But when the King wants someone found guilty, there is no escape. It was a shame and I love his poetry and used one at the funeral of my mother by law.
