Elizabeth and Henry Part 4


The first recorded fireworks in England were at the wedding of King Henry VII and Elizabeth of York in 1486. They gained popularity during the reign of Henry VIII and by Elizabethan times (1558-1603) there was a fireworks master. Queen Elizabeth I created this post so that someone would be in charge of organising firework displays for great occasions. James II even knighted his fireworks master after a particularly excellent show of fireworks at his coronation. (x)

↳”It’s this job. Is it turning me into a morally compromised version of myself? Because I am worried that I’m gonna become someone that you can’t be with anymore.

Whoa, whoa. I talk a good game, but I am no pillar of virtue.

You’re a good man. I-I need you to be my touchstone. Uh, to tell me if I’m crossing lines. I’d quit this job in a heartbeat if it threatened what we have.

Hey. That’s not gonna happen.
But if you’re asking me to be the man beside the woman? I’m in.

“The man beside the woman.”

Henry VIII was such a little shit. His parents were buried in this beautiful tomb, and he just thought: I know they were king and queen, but how can I still make this about me?

So he put this on it:  “Joined to him his sweet wife was very pretty, chaste and fruitful. They were parents happy in their offspring, to whom, land of England, you owe Henry VIII”

Can you imagine being so full of yourself?

(correct me if I’m wrong though)
