When royal babies were born at that time in England, there were celebrations, but Elizabeth’s royal birth celebration went far beyond of what was usual for a royal birth celebration. King Henry decided to name the new born girl Mary, just as her half-sister, but he changed his mind and named her Elizabeth. Princess Elizabeth was moved out of the palace and taken to a nursery suite at Greenwich where her half-sister served her as her maid. King Henry became really upset with Anne Boleyn because she had not been able to bear him a male child. He decided to accuse her of adultery and infidelity to have an excuse to ordain her execution.
Anne was executed, and two weeks later the king married Jane Seymour. In 1537 Queen Jane died after giving birth to a son, Edward. Elizabeth and Mary participated in his christening ceremony. As Edward grew older, he and Elizabeth became close; although they lived in separate households, they wrote to each other often. When Elizabeth was four, Katherine Champernowne became her governess.
She went between her mother's townhouse and her father's country estates. Both parents got re-married, so she had two step-parents to please. Because of Diana's royal background, she earned an invitation to Prince Charles's thirtieth birthday party. This is were the two met for the first time. There were hundreds of people at the party, but Charles couldn't take his eyes off of Diana.
In 300 years, Diana would be the first to become a Princess by marriage. Charles and Diana married in St. Paul’s Cathedral, as recorded and watched by millions worldwide on television, on July 29, 1981. "'Everybody had gone completely Diana mad. It was amazing the sort of mania about her,' says royal photographer, Jayne Dincher" (Ibid.) It seemed as though the world was ... ... middle of paper ... ...race with paparazzi in an attempt to avoid them, Diana’s death was mourned with the world as they lost one of the most important women of their time.
Charles just wanted a wife and he chose Diana. Prince William was born on June 21, 1982. Prince Harry was born on September 15, 1984. But by this time their marriage was breaking, because Prince Charles had continued his relationship with Camillia Parker Bowles. By the late 1980’s the couple had separated, though the separation was not announced until December 9th 1992.
His previous wife was Catherine of Aragon who had been his brother’s widow. However, her marriage with Henry VIII went wrong when he realized that Catherine was not able to give birth to a healthy son. The only child who survived was Mary, a subsequent queen of England (www.luminarium.org). The monarch had several mistresses in order to have a son. One of them was Anne Boleyn’s sister; Mary Boleyn who later became pregnant and she gave birth to a healthy son (www.angelfire.com).
She had a nervous breakdown because of these tragedies and it filled her life with loneliness (Lombardi 1). After her husband passed, Mary found it hard to support herself and her son. Sir Timothy Shelley gave her as small sum of money, and made her publish her works anonymously. She wrote a few other books after her husband’s death, but they got negative criticism. These novels also contained tragedies that probably were taken from her own life.
The rest of her life she seemed to bounce around, from many quick marriages, to always looking for something different with her career. She did not seem to have balance or stability in her life, which lead to her early death of overdose when she was 36 years old (“Marilyn Monroe Biography,” 2010). Marilyn Monroe’s life can be analyzed very well from a psychodynamic perspective based on her childhood and how she acted as an adult. “Psychodynamic theorists believe that a person’s behavior, whether normal or abnormal, is determined largely by underlying psychological forces of which he or she is not consciously aware” (Comer p. 37). These forces then conflict with each other internally and cause problems in the individual.
His want of a male heir led him to many marriages, divorces, and affairs that are still remembered in history today. Catherine of Aragon was born on December 16th, 1485 to Ferdinand and Isabella in Alcala de Henares, Spain, a princess who would be matched with her future husband at the age of three. This future husband was Prince Arthur, son of King Henry VII and older brother of King Henry VIII. The two were married later in their teens, but six months after the marriage, Arthur died, likely a victim of the fatal ‘sweating sickness’. Approximately four years later, she married King Henry VIII and became pregnant soon after.
Just a few months after they had been wed, Susanna was born which meant that the swift marriage was caused by an unplanned pregnancy due to premarital intercourse. Just a short twenty-one months later, they gave birth to a set of twins; Hamnet and Anne. Around 1590, he moved to England to make success of his work and he would later become a co-owner to the Globe Theater. In, 1596 his only son passed at age eleven. Shakespeare and Anne remained wed till 1616, when Shakespeare passed.
