♡ On this day in Tudor History ♡
•Field of the Cloth of Gold: Day 11•
Forgot to post this yesterday!
On yesterday’s date, June 17, 1520, Hall wrote, “On Saturday both kings entered the field and king Henry’s armour-skirt and horse-trapper were decorated with 2,000 ounces of gold and 1,100 huge pearls, the price of which was incalculable, the Earl of Devonshire also appeared that day wearing cloth of gold, tissue-cloth and cloth of silver, all elaborately embroidered, with his retinue wearing the same uniform.
When the French king and the Earl of Devonshire charged at each other, so fierce was their encounter that both their lances broke. In all they ran off eight times, during which the French king broke three lances while the earl broke two lances and the French king’s nose.” ———————————Otd, June 18, 1541, Henry was declared the King of Ireland by the Irish Parliament.
The Irish nobility accepted this as it placed Ireland separately from England and Wales and gave Ireland its own sense of unity. The Crown of Ireland act was passed on this day in the Parliament of Ireland, meeting in Dublin, being read out to parliament in English and Irish. The act meant/was short for, “An Act that the King of England, his Heirs and Successors, be Kings of Ireland.” Henry VIII was the first King of Ireland, the title was created for him and his successors, as the previous title in which people ruled the island was Lord of Ireland ♡

Dereham and Culpeper, found guilty of high treason were executed on Dec. 10, 1541, Culpeper and Dereham by decapitation before being hanged and quartered. The severed heads of two men were exposed on London Bridge, where they remained until 1546 Catherine was stripped of the title of queen, his goods were confiscated and the same was locked in the former Abbey of Syon, where, has become aware of their desperate situation , fell into such a state of depression that the jailers were forced to subtract any object which might try to commit suicide. During his imprisonment, and following the admissions of Dereham and Culpeper, Archbishop Cranmer, he suggested to appeal to previous engagement Dereham and the subsequent consumption, which would have entailed the nullity of marriage with the king and would have guaranteed to save his life, but the unfortunate girl, partly because of simple ignorance and partly because by now panicked, refused to consider this possibility, saying that there had been no promise of marriage between her and the young Dereham and that these He would "use violence". Hoping to be pardoned - and probably on the advice of Archbishop Cranmer - Catherine wrote a petition to the king ungrammatical, one of only two surviving written in his own hand, calling himself "the most painful a subject of Your Majesty and the vilest of the world", begging for mercy "for my young age, my ignorance, my weakness, the humble confession of my sins and my humble trust to your clemency and mercy". #Queen #CatherineParr #TheTudors #TheTudorsDinasty #TheTudorsScandaliACorte #King #KingOfEngland #HenryVIII #JonathanRhysMeyers #TamzinMerchant #Lady #Lord #London #England #Wife #Wedding #Photo #Prince #Princess #BeautifulScene #Followme #HenryCavill @tamzinmerchant
