On this day VIII, at the age of 44, had a serious jousting accident - supposedly uninjured, but said it would have killed most men.

Not Medieval or Renaissance period but..............

Canned beer makes its debut on this day in 1935. In partnership with the American Can Company, the Gottfried Krueger Brewing Company delivered 2,000 cans of Krueger's Finest Beer and Krueger's Cream Ale to faithful Krueger drinkers in Richmond, Virginia. Ninety-one percent of the drinkers approved of the canned beer, driving Krueger to give the green light to further production.

Armour for beer, what a concept!!

Spiced rum....hmmmmm
Greetings, try this.

I've been watching The Tudors lately (finally), and even though it is a... highly embellished version... it's still extremely entertaining.  I've noticed that in almost every episode there is someone writing to someone else, with official seals and such... and I occasionally wonder how much of these correspondences have survived.  So many different types of records were preserved from the daily lives of monarchs, and I would think that the Royal Secretary would likely have carefully put all received letters away for safe keeping... and anyone receiving a letter from a queen or king would surely treasure it simply for the source, correct?  I suppose I could do a simple search and find out how much has survived... but what I really wonder about is how much of that sort of thing is researched when writing the scripts for this sort of series, or film... and how much of it is just so much poetic license?
   Hubby loves to look up this kind of stuff-Remarkably-nearly all of the official documents you see being written on the Tudors were legit.
    Most of the entertainment license was taken up with names of characters -Margaret Tudor  was a blend of Henry's 2 real life sisters; Margaret and mary Tudor.  The real Margaret Tudor married the King of Scots and was the grandmother of Mary QOS, and Mary was the Queen of France and the grandmother of the ill fated Lady Jane Grey.  The costumes, behavior and physical characteristics of Henry and his queens,  and the order in which some historical events actually happened were freely embellished.

  A copy of Mary QOS execution warrant is available to see online, as is one of the love letters that his 4th queen-Katherine Howard-wrote to Thomas Culpepper.   Tame by modern standards; this letter was horribly intimate for a Queen to write to someone who was not her husband.
  Many documents signed by QEI are extant.

The history books can never convey the wealth of drama and intrigue that has gone on throughout history... which is why things like private correspondence and love letters are so very fascinating!

On this date in 1554 Queen Mary summoned her sister Elizabeth to Court, warning her about Wyatt's rebellion.  Elizabeth did not obey the summons, pleading illness.

On this date in 1457 Henry VII was born. And on this date in 1547 Henry VIII died, thereby saving yours truly from execution.

Certainly an odd juxtaposition of numbers.
 :)
On January 29, 1536, Anne Boleyn gave birth to a stillborn son.
This was also the date of the funeral of Queen Katherine of Aragon.

Katherine was buried with the title of "Princess Dowager" rather than Queen Katherine, and Queen Anne blamed her miscarriage on her uncle, the Duke of Norfolk.
