Anne Boleyn

Princess Elizabeth’s christening gown, sewn and embroidered by her mother, Anne Boleyn 1533

Lady Jane Grey was born October 1537 in Bradgate, England. When Edward died on July 6, 1553 she was proclaimed queen. She was the titular queen of England for nine days in 1553. She reluctantly allowed herself at age 15 to be put on the throne by unscrupulous politicians; her subsequent execution Edward VI's sister, Mary Tudor, on Feb. 12, 1554 aroused universal sympathy.

Queen Elizabeth oak, Northiam, East Sussex, UK, you might think this 1,000 year old tree is just a tree but it's a very special tree! When Queen Elizabeth I journeyed to Rye on August 1573 she sat under this tree and ate a meal. She changed her shoes of green damask silk with a 2 5" heel and pointed toe and left them behind as a memento of her visit. They are still in existence and are shown on special occasions.

Henry the VII (1447-1509), was the son of Edmund Tudor (1431-1456), Earl of Richmond and head of the house of Lancaster, and Margaret Beaufort (1443-1509). After defeating Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485, Henry successfully claimed the English throne. In 1486 married Elizabeth, Princess of York (1465-1503), daughter of Edward IV (1442-1483). This marriage unified the previously opposed houses of Lancaster and York. His reign began the Tudor Dynasty, which ran from 1485-1603.

The Battle of Bosworth Field was the last significant battle of the Wars of the Roses, the civil war between the Houses of Lancaster and York that raged across England in the latter half of the 15th century. The battle was won by the Lancastrians. Their leader Henry Tudor, Earl of Richmond, by his victory became the first English monarch of the Tudor dynasty. His opponent, Richard III, the last king of the House of York, was killed in the battle.

One of the most stunning tiaras in the collections of the extended British royal family, the Fife tiara (which was probably made by Massin, given similarities to other Massin tiaras) was given to Princess Louise, the daughter of King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra, as a wedding gift in 1889.

The Plantagenet family tree, which ended when Henry VII (Anne Boleyn's father in law) overthrew Richard III and thus began the reign of the Tudors. The Tudor reign lasted less than 150 years...a very short period of time compared to the other prior and future reigning houses in England.

Lady Margaret Beaufort's tomb, a lavish creation that reflects Henry VII's love for his mother.
