 The Children of Henry VIII | Mary I, Elizabeth I & Edward VI.

"Although King Henry VIII of England married six times, only his first three wives bore him children, and of a probable total of eleven pregnancies between them, produced only three surviving children. The fact that these royal heirs were born to different mothers would have a direct bearing on the history of England for several decades, for old grudges and jealousies and disagreements over religion remained lively in the hearts of these siblings until death divided them."

↳ "It’s all about lines. The finish line at the end of residency, waiting in line for a chance at the operating table, and then there’s the most important line; the line separating you from the people you work with. It doesn’t help to get too familiar, to make friends. You need boundaries, between you and the rest of the world. Other people are far too messy. It’s all about lines. Drawing lines in the sand and praying like hell no one crosses them." - The First Cut Is The Deepest

HISTORY AU || Henry wasn’t as much of an asshole as he could have been

By the time Mary was 10, Henry had resigned himself to the fact that he wouldn’t have any more children. Or at least, any more children with Catherine. He had held out some hope after the last miscarriage when Mary had been 2 but then Catherine had never quite recovered. He distracted himself from the implications of this with his mistresses and other entertainments but it was never far from his mind.

The last time a daughter of a king had tried to succeed him it had failed abominably. But then again, that king hadn’t been the well-loved Henry. Ever since he had been a child, people catered to his every whim. What was the good of such people if they could not be relied on to stay loyal to his blood, female or not? Henry knew better than most to not discount the female royal blood. His own mother was the daughter of a king and his father would never have been accepted as king if he had not married the heiress of York. Even in his own mind, he depended more on the lineage of his mother than his father. With this in mind, he could not deny his own daughter the precedence that he so easily gave to his mother. These thoughts gave him reassurance and he let things stay as they were. Catherine was old and not well; he may yet have another wife. 

Catherine quietly died after years of illness. Henry mourned the woman who had been all a queen should be and had only failed at something out of her control. The even deeper loss for him was the woman who had known his family before it was devastated by loss. There had been no closer who knew how affected he had been by his mother’s death or how his father’s last years had made it clear to him what kind of king he didn’t want to be. But now was the chance for a new start and Henry was never one to deny himself happiness.

Henry married his long-suffering mistress, Anne Boleyn. She was soon with child and he was anxious that he would finally have a son. When the time came and they came to tell him what the child was, he could tell by their manner and the look on their faces. It was a girl. (x)

That’s one of my least favorite roles that women fill on TV shows — the killjoy who tells the goofy fun guy to knock it off. We consciously tried to avoid that dynamic — we had them like each other, treat each other like peers, seek advice from each other, and (maybe most importantly) we made them both screw up a lot, albeit in different ways. Melissa and Andy make it easy, though, by playing their scenes not like “fun-time Charlie and his mean schoolmarm watchdog” but like two real humans who tease each other. - Michael Schur on Amy’s relationship with Jake

ƒar away was the time when he 'fought' with his fencing master to impress his betrothed stealthily observing him. Two years. Two hectic years. Their Prince Arthur. A pretender. Her coronation. Two years during which they had both aged. Two years during which care and affection had appeared between them. "I do not want to see you on, or near a battlefield anymore," I do not want to lose  y o u she stated sudddenly, forcing him to look up from his work. A closed smile formed on his thin lips. "Are you giving an order to your King?" "No. To my husband." There was a tone in her voice that suggested him to listen carefully, and Henry focused on her face: the small lines around her mouth, the tense fit of her jaw, the typically kind yet dark blue eyes. Concern. "Your hands are not made to hold a sword," she said, “They are made to hold me. Just  m e ,”  —and that was the closest to I love you Elizabeth had ever come.
