No way. There was a huge scandal after King Henry died, that Elizabeth was pregnant by her stepfather, Thomas Seymour, the new husband of Henry’s last wife Catherine Parr.
Also, there was no privacy in those times especially for a royal. There were spies everywhere and there is no way that this secret could have been kept into adulthood. When she was stricken with smallpox, it surely would have been discovered. Since there was such a drama about her successor, had this been the case, Catherine Grey would have immediately been crowned as the new ruler of England, especially with the power of the Seymours behind her.
I am your king!...................
“Balls!” said the Queen. “If I had to (two) I’d be King!”
The King laughed because he had to (two)!
Bah! We have a President who claims to be [ ]...
OK, ‘enry didn’t recognize his own daughter.
The earls of Leister and Essex, and Sir Walter Raleigh, and other swains were all boning a man.
I’ll buy that for quid.
Even as she said —
“...even in the dust. I know I have the body but of a weak and feeble woman; but I have the heart and stomach of a king, and of a king of England too...”
Interesting. I guess it’s all fanciful conjecture until they open up the crypt.
Another attempt by the LGBT crossdresser community to embed themselves in history. The revisionist stuff they teach in school now.
Possibly the most stupid historical theory I’ve ever heard.
Lol! We’re supposed to believe that the most powerful monarch in the world, observed every second for the slightest mistake, could somehow pass as a member of the opposite sex for half a century???
This is nothing more than a morbid justification to open Elizabeth’s tomb and poke around in her mortal remains. And it’s motivated more by ghoulishness and sensationalism than any interest in historical truth.
Transgender organizations getting pretty jazzed about this. Women’s organizations? Not so much.
What? Cate Blanchett is a guy?
So Elizabeth was a male and one of the Pope’s was a female.
Such tales have amused the populace for decades, centuries.
The artist seems to show what appears to be beard shadow. If so, you have to wonder how the queen or her handlers let this happen.
There are many theories. I watched a BBC documentary on them. One is that Elizabeth was a man with undescended male parts another was that she had both male and female parts.
I’m surprised her “ladies in waiting” never noticed.
This is stupidity.
