i'd love to hear more about elizabeth and kat ashley. she was kind of like elizabeth's mom right?

she was governess to elizabeth i, and later in her life she was her close friend.

there’s a lot that’s not known about her, but here’s a bit about how it came to be that she entered the stage of the princess elizabeth’s life:

“Another mystery—how did a woman from rural, distant Devon get to court, get a good education, and why was she seemingly tied to Thomas Cromwell at first?  Research on Cromwell shows that he did visit rural Devon during Kat’s youth to close down a few monasteries for Cardinal Wolsey—one way His Eminence kept his coffers full years before the Dissolution. 

So Kat arrives at the Tudor court during the days Anne Boleyn is first in residence there, the days Anne and Cromwell are working together and King Henry is in hot pursuit of a divorce from Catherine of Aragon.  Kat had to know and impress Anne, for in the days before the queen’s fall from power, Anne took a strong hand in who was around her baby daughter. Kat was in a position in little Elizabeth’s household to take over from her first governess, Lady Margaret Bryan, when Bryan was promoted to care for the newborn Prince Edward.  So it is certainly obvious that, whether Cromwell or Anne placed Kat in Elizabeth’s household at first, she was there from the early days.” 

a less elaborate, specific version of the above:

“Katherine Champernon (or Champernowne) was appointed to Elizabeth’s household in July 1536 and became her governess in 1537. Elizabeth knew her as “Kat” and later said that she took “great labour and pain in bringing of me up in learning and honesty”. Kat, who married Sir John Ashley in 1545, was a close confidante to Elizabeth and was appointed First Lady of the Bedchamber when Elizabeth became queen.

Kat was highly educated and seems to have been in charge of the princess’ education between 1536 and 1544.”


“Kat’s niece was Joan Champernowne, who married Sir Anthony Denny, Groom of the Stool and most trusted servant to King Henry VIII, Queen Elizabeth’s father.”

it seems she was very protective of her; it’s from her accounts that we learned about thomas seymour’s treatment of elizabeth., including the incident where he cut her black gown to pieces. 

elizabeth’s own writing demonstrates they were close:

In a letter to the Lord Protector, Edward Seymour, in 1549, regarding her governess Kat Ashley’s imprisonment in the Tower of London, Elizabeth famously wrote:-

“We are more bound to them that bringeth us up well, than to our parents, for our parents do that which is natural for them, that is bringeth us into the world, but our bringers up are a cause to make us live well in it.”

it also seems like Kat was protective enough of her to be concerned for elizabeth’s reputation re: robert dudley when she was queen: 

“Kat Ashley was so distressed by the damage incurred to Elizabeth’s reputation – not for the first time – that ‘she implored her in God’s name to marry [someone else] and put an end to all these disreputable rumours.’ Elizabeth self-righteously tried to dismiss her servant’s concerns; the constant presence of her ladies, she said, gave a lie to the gossip and it was unfair that she should be so calumnied, lamenting that ‘in this world she had so much sorrow and tribulation and so little joy.’ “

‘We only watched music videos on our phones after you left. The mood sagged. I tucked in the children and read them stories but they kept asking after you.’
This made Gansey laugh. 'We were having adventures.’
'I thought so. That’s what I told them.’
