↳ ”Your Majesty, I almost lost an eye for the same reward.”
R.I.P. Queen Jane Seymour (24 October 1537)
"If good prayers can save her, she is not like to die," people were saying "Never was lady more popular with every man, rich or poor". Alison Weir (x)
On this day in 1537, Jane Seymour gave birth to King Henry VIII’s only surviving, legitimate son, Prince Edward VI.
you sent me away before, though i loved you.
He’s marrying the perfect wife for him [Jane Seymour], and he’s learned that he doesn’t need an Anne Boleyn – another partner in crime to help him take over the world. He just needs a wonderful, supportive wife to take care of him when he comes home from a hard day beheading people.

I am reminded of something Wolsey once told me, that I should only tell the King what he ought to do, never what he could…"For if the lion knows his own strength, no one could control him".
do not be troubled for me, for i have great reason to be happy
Happy birthday, Annebelle Wallis! (b. 25 September 1984)
As a child I was always encouraged to discover what I was truly about. My parents supported me in everything I chose to do. Thus giving me the confidence to believe that anything is possible. I was always theatrical, but also incredibly shy growing up. For me acting is a lot about personal experience, wisdom, the awareness of self and others.
“….because Jane Seymour had a sympathetic nature, it did not mean that she was without conventional aspirations…Her conduct, first as a royal lady-in-waiting and later as a queen, indicates that she was more of a steel magnolia -a fragrant, seemingly fragile, ultra feminine exterior concealing a tensile core." [Leslie Carroll]
I have no doubt whatsoever that your Majesty’s reign will always be remembered.
softly love and to love softly, / dew upon a sycamore branch / by the creaking gate / where my heart hurries afterwards / through the path of wheat / along the briar, to that stone / under which i lie.requested by elizabethwoodvile
