G.O.T: Like a Virgin?


This monarch had such an interesting and turbulent life that I will have to plug up my mouth to stop it running with this update. There is so much to say that choosing one clue in particular was too difficult so I will just yabber with a few carrots and hope for the best. For all we know of her, the temperamental redhead, the virgin… her life was infused with personal turmoil. Early on in her reign saw squabbles with Mary Queen of Scots, who was her cousin. The family ties left her utterly distraught when she had no choice but to execute her for treason after numerous revolts. The suspicious death of Amy Robsart, the wife of her supposed lover, Robert Dudley, meant her court turned into a place of gossip and intrigue. This cemented her ‘celibate’ life, with her only marriage being to her kingdom, which remained her main love for her 45 year rule. It wasn’t all doom and gloom though, she saw a huge success in the defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1588, which was a very unlikely but celebrated victory for her country and lead to the everlasting quote: “I have the body of a weak and feeble woman, but the heart and stomach of a king”. A true inspiration to all of the Emmeline Pankhurst’s of the future… *resentfully puts plug back in mouth* πŸ™‚

    • I LOVE blackadder! The second series is my favourite: ‘Just one more thing, is her nose as pretty as mine?’ ‘oh no no no maam’ ‘Oh good, because if it was then Id have to cut it off, and youd have to marry someone without a nose wouldnt you.Imagine the mess when she got a cold yuck!’ amazingly funny! πŸ™‚
