Funery Music for a Catholic Queen
We should probably be doing stuff all week. Read about it, here.
The tragedy at hand cemented the perfidy both past and present of the Tudors and paved the way for Oliver Cromwell and the murderous entrance of atheism in politics. Kings were no longer profound, sacral figures, they were a target for revolutionary ire, and this alchemetical recipe led to the murderous excesses of the French Revolution. You can actually see it all unfold as each new century shows man being more inhumane to man, more efficiently and often legally.
