Okay so I feel like ranting again, but this time against the social backdrop of the movie "The Other Boleyn Girl."
Here is my rant, because of King Henry VII actions...this means that Mary's bastard son (unnamed in the movie, but I think his name was Henry Carey) and Anne's biological daughter (the infamous Queen Elizabeth) were not only cousins but also siblings.
I find this amazing that the royal family was such a tangled mess of lies, deciet, adultery, and scandal.
Oh yah, and after all of the bitching and moaning that Henry VII and his skirting around with all of those women and never getting a proper male heir to the throne, historians believe it was his fault because evidence suggests he had syphillis!!!
