Let's talk about the amazing Elizabeth of York. Often considered passive, this kind, gentle woman, who had a close relationship with her son Henry, lived as the daughter, sister, niece, wife, and mother of a king.
Crime was punished a bit differently when Henry VIII and his descendants ran the show. Small infractions could get you hanged, and don't even think of taking that bird's egg! And don't forget the torture they used to find out who exactly stole the bird egg.
The Tudors celebrated their holidays a little differently than we do. There were more pigeon-stuffed foods at Christmas and more chicken-murdered games at Easter.
