Question from Ashley - Variety of questions
I was wondering. Would things have been dramatically different if Henry VIII had had a bastard half-brother? If Henry VII had been unfaithful to Elizabeth of York and that dalliance resulted in a child, would the succesion have been altered to cut out Mary and Elizabeth? I know it was altered in the case of William the Conqueror who unseated Matilda. Plus, what did Mary Boleyn die of? It seems like she dies awfully young even for that period. What happened to the Boleyn's titles when Thomas Boleyn died? For Mary had her son, Henry Carey so there was a male to inherit, but knowing Henry he probably was spiteful enough to keep them.
