The Lancastrian Avenger Queen Margaret In Richard III: Chorus, Prophetess, and Conscience - The premise of William Shakespeare’s circa 1597 historic tragedy Richard III relies on the violent struggle between two noble houses, the Lancastrians and the Yorkists, known as the Wars of the Roses. Even though it can stand entirely on its own, the preceding plays of this tetralogy, 1 Henry VI, 2 Henry VI, and 3 Henry VI brilliantly sketch the foreground for Richard III as it picks up directly from the events described in 3 Henry VI.

Queen Mary The I - ... She appears to have spent three years in the Welsh Marches, making regular visits to her father's court, before returning home in the mid-1528. On July 6, 1553, at the age of 15 Edward VI died from lung infection, possibly tuberculosis. He didn't want the crown to go to Mary because he feared she would restore Catholicism and undo her reform, as well as those of Henry VIII, and so he planned to exclude her from the line of succession. His adviser, however, told him that he could not disinherit only one of his sisters, but that he would have to disinherit Elizabeth as well, even though she embraced the church of England....   [tags: The Tudors, British history]

Elizabeth I - Elizabeth I King Henry VIII changed history in order to marry Anne Boleyn, hoping she could give him a son to be his heir. He already had a daughter, Mary, by his first wife, Catherine of Aragon, a princess of Spain, whom he divorced. The Pope would not allow the divorce, so Henry declared himself the Head of the Church of England, and disallowed any power the Pope might hold on English religion. On September 7, 1533 in Greenwich Palace, Anne had a daughter, who was named Elizabeth. A few years later, Henry accused Anne of incest, which historians agree was probably untrue - but Anne was beheaded in May 1536, and Elizabeth, not even three years old, was sent to live with relatives so she w...   [tags: essays research papers fc]

So what does that make a criticism of a criticism.
