  • Henry Vll (representing the Lancaster family) married Elizabeth of York (representing the York family). This marriage united the two families. Henry created the Tudor rose, containing both the White Rose of York and the Red Rose of Lancaster. It symbolized the end of a struggle between York and Lancaster.

  • Succession to the crownThe First and Second Succession Act of Henry VIII's reign were passed by the Parliament of England.They declared Henry's daughters Mary and Elizabeth to be illegitimate. As a result, Henry was left without a legitimate heir until Prince Edward was born in 1537. The succession was subsequently changed by the Third Succession Act, which returned both Mary and Elizabeth to the line of succession. Legally, they were still illegitimate.

  • Edward VI the heirEDWARD VI RULED FOR ONLY SIX YEARS, BEGINNING AT 9 YEARS OF AGE. HE DIED OF TUBERCULOSIS AT AGE 15.

  • Bloody MaryMARY RULED FOR FIVE YEARS. SHE BECAME KNOWN AS BLOODY MARY BECAUSE SHE RE-ESTABLISHED CATHOLICISM AND WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE MURDER OF POWERFUL PROTESTANTS WHO REFUSED TO CONVERT TO CATHOLICISM.

  • Shakespeares TheaterQueen Elizabeth was an avid fan of the theatre and often attended plays. She was a patron of Shakespeares plays.When she died without an heir, she left her kingdom to her second cousin, James VI of Scotland. He became James I of England. He called himself the King of Britain. He was the son of Mary Stuart (Elizabeths first cousin), who was the daughter of Henry VIIIs sister - (new line of succession).It is ironic that James I inherited the throne of England, because Queen Elizabeth had his mother beheaded.

  • King of Britain James IRuled England, Scotland and Ireland for 22 years called himself the King of Britain.Fond of plays, music and masques. Shakespeare named his theatre company The Kings Men. Shakespeare wrote Macbeth for him due to his Scottish ancestry. He was King JAMES I of England and King JAMES VI of Scotland.

  • MACBETH is William Shakespeares shortest tragedy - just five Acts based on Scottish history. It is the story of a mans tragic flaw and how it ruined his life. By the way, King Duncan and King Macbeth were real men, but they were BOTH good rulers.
