In today’s post I am going to be discussing some strange facts about the Tudor Dynasty. I thought it would be fun to use the same concept I did with our facts from U.S History post by inviting the group Everything Tudor Era to help compile this list.

I want to dive into the very last moments of Queen Mary of Scots and share the very last letter she ever wrote. Mary was executed in England on February 8th, 1587 at Fotheringhay Castle. In Mary’s final hours she decides to pen a letter to King Henry III of France. Henry is Mary’s brother-in-law through her first marriage to King Francis II.
