    Yes, it’s taken till the 21st century for the rule about the first child inheriting the throne to be passed (in the UK at least – and the Duchess of Cambridge’s first child was a boy in any case). Any male children Henry VIII and Katherine of Aragon had died in infancy. I don’t think Queen Mary (Tudor) had a very happy life though arguably she allowed members of her administration allow brutality towards Protestants (though at the time of the Reformation I don’t think either protestants or non-protestants came up squeaky clean).
    Thanks EB for another witty verse albeit regarding a sombre theme.
