I have a few questions about the accuracy of the story of the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire. The story this year is that in 1583 Ivan IV comes from Muscovy to England looking for a bride and he ends up choosing Queen Elizabeth's lady-in-waiting, Mary Hastings.
Did Ivan really come to England? And if so, did he propose to Mary Hastings, to Elizabeth, or to anyone else?
I have found conflicting information on the internet and wondered if anyone could help clarify it.
