How many godparents did Tudor people have? Were they always named after them?
Was Mary Tudor, Queen of France the godmother of Mary I of England, or was that another Mary?
I read that Elizabeth I had over 100 godchildren. Is this true?
Did she ever turn people down who wanted her as a godparent? Did other Tudor kings and queens have a similar number of godchildren? Did the Tudor monarchs favor their godchildren over other courtiers?
And lastly, is there a list of each ruler's godchildren anywhere? Do we know who any of them were?
