What do you think Henry VIII would have thought about his Daughter Elizabeth I as a Queen
What do you think Henry VIII would have said about his daughter if he had been able to meet her at the end of her life given how much he wanted a son to rule after him?
Well, he would have kneel down and kiss her hands. His heart in deep pain..wouldn't let him saya word... wiping his tears and still mute, he will look down in shame. His wives woulkd come from behind and would drag him back..to the pit of hell.
I seriously doubt if he would've liked it, male chauvinist that he was.
He would have been jealous of her successes, but generally approving of her tyrannical methods and policies.
He wanted a son to succeed him so much that he dumped his first wife(Catherine of Aragon) for his second (Anne Boleyn) and his second lost her head so he could marry his third (Jane Seymour) and she gave him his son and died in childbirth. He would have been more proud of Elizabeth than his daughter Mary as queen (she was a bit of a protestant burner!) but he would be too narcissistic and chauvinist to accept that she was a good queen (and a better monarch than him).

Which English Monarch (alive or dead) do you find the most fascinating?I am fascinated by all of them from Alfred the Great through to Elizabeth II, but I think my favorite might be Henry VIII because he was so terrible (killing his wives and striving for absolute power).
