Queen Elizabeth I: A Biography of A Very Important Queen in World History (The People's Queen of England) (Fascinating World History Episodes Book 10)

by History-Episode

A Complete Biography of Queen Elizabeth I – A Very Important Queen in World HistoryFrom the moment she was conceived, Queen Elizabeth I of England was the subject of controversy. The daughter of King Henry VIII and his second wife Anne Boleyn, Elizabeth was accused of being illegitimate by English Catholics before she was even born, as they refused to acknowledge the annulment of Henry's first marriage. Elizabeth's childhood was tumultuous, as her mother was executed when she was two and a half years old, and she was raised as Henry's daughter but not Henry's heir.Elizabeth became Queen in 1558, succeeding her half-sister Mary Tudor to the throne. Elizabeth refused to marry immediately and rule as co-regent with her husband, as Mary had done, and her decision to remain single and rule al...

Punishing the Criminal Corpse, 1700-1840: Aggravated Forms of the Death Penalty in England (Palgrave Historical Studies in the Criminal Corpse and its Afterlife)

by Peter King

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 licence. This book analyses the different types of post-execution punishments and other aggravated execution practices, the reasons why they were advocated, and the decision, enshrined in the Murder Act of 1752, to make two post-execution punishments, dissection and gibbeting, an integral part of sentences for murder. It traces the origins of the Act, and then explores the ways in which Act was actually put into practice. After identifying the dominance of penal dissection throughout the period, it looks at the abandonment of burning at the stake in the 1790s, the rapid decline of hanging in chains just after 1800, and the final abandonment of both dissection and gibbeting in 1832 and 1834. It concludes that the Act, by creating differentiation in...

Executing Magic in the Modern Era: Criminal Bodies and the Gallows in Popular Medicine (Palgrave Historical Studies in the Criminal Corpse and its Afterlife)

by Owen Davies

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 licenseThis book explores the magical and medical history of executions from the eighteenth to the early twentieth century by looking at the afterlife potency of criminal corpses, the healing activities of the executioner, and the magic of the gallows site. The use of corpses in medicine and magic has been recorded back into antiquity. The lacerated bodies of Roman gladiators were used as a source of curative blood, for instance. In early modern Europe, a great trade opened up in ancient Egyptian mummies and the fat of executed criminals, plundered as medicinal cure-alls. However, this is the first book to consider the demand for the blood of the executed, the desire for human fat, the resort to the hanged man’s hand, and the trade in hanging ro...

The Personal Life of Queen Victoria

by Sarah A. Southall Tooley

"Mrs. Tooley, in addition to the ordinary sources of information, has been favoured with many special anecdotes and particulars of incidents in the Queen's career. This gives her book a distinct.value." — Westminster Gazette"Mrs. Tooley's 'Memoirs' are a brightly written popular account, which will appeal at once to all classes and ages of loyal subjects. Throughout the volume the writer has kept the political atmosphere in the background, intent rather on depicting our Sovereign, as she spoke of herself on her marriage day, as a woman rather than a queen." — The Bookseller...

A Brief History of Awsworth (Brief Histories, North Nottingham Book 4)

by J M Lee

Awsworth today is a dormitory area for a collection of nearby conurbations, including the City of Nottingham itself. But walking along “The Lane” in modern times, it’s not hard to transport yourself back a couple of hundred years to the tiny hamlet of the past, surrounded as it was, on all sides, by rural England. And through the mists of time it’s possible to glimpse a fascinating story. The origins of Awsworth go back at least to Saxon times. After that, as the centuries progressed, it came under some dramatic influences: Lenton Priory, whose Prior was executed during the Dissolution, the Lords Cromwell, the Babbington family which met disaster after plotting against Elizabeth, the Sheffields of Butterwick, the Willoughby family of Risley, the Earl of Stamford and more. Awsworth...

The Wars of the Roses

by John Gillingham

Frequently remembered only as a period of military history which both saw the French beat the English and then the English fight amongst themselves, traditional historians have tended to regard The Wars of the Roses as an episode that wrecked England's military greatness.John Gillingham's highly readable history separates the myth from the reality. He argues that, paradoxically, the Wars of the Roses demonstrate how peaceful England in fact was. From the accession of the infant Henry VI to the thrones of England and France in 1422 to the accession of Henry VII following the Battle of Bosworth in 1485, Gillingham uses his gift for graphic description (particularly with his exciting account of the 1471 campaign) to great effect. He is also good at placing the warfare within its European cont...
