Thomas Radclyffe, Earl of Sussex, maternal cousin of Anne Boleyn, Katheryn Howard, and Elizabeth I
Thomas Radclyffe, Earl of Sussex, maternal cousin of Anne Boleyn, Katheryn Howard, and Elizabeth I The Earl of Sussex was one of the ablest political figures in Tudor England, as witnessed by his ability to hold senior posts under all three monarchs in the latter half of the sixteenth century. This was a remarkable feat at a time when political pendulum swung violently between the Protestant Edward VI, the Catholic Mary I, and finally the Protestant Elizabeth I. by lisby1, via Flickr

Elizabeth Amadas (died 1532) was a lady at the royal court of King Henry VIII of England who was accused of treason. She had described Anne Boleyn as a harlot, and said that she should be burnt. She also said that the King, by setting aside Katherine of Aragon for a younger woman, was encouraging the men of England to do the same. She later was released but didn´t recover her position at court. She was also the target of the Kings relentless advances, but never stated if she gave in.

"I think we grow up as girls having to deal with a lot of oppressive beauty myths. And Anne is a girl who fails by all standards of what is acceptable and beautiful. She's not pretty. She's not rich. She has no parents. But through sheer exercise of will she makes the world understand how beautiful she is. It's her specialness, her ability to transform how people perceive her, that audiences, particularly girls, want to believe in." -Megan Follows on her character, Anne Shirley.
