       "Six Items a Day of Enduring Insignificance" 
Greetings Infomaniacs,

Did you know that on this day in 1509, King Henry VIII of 
England married Catherine of Aragon? Catherine was the first 
of Henry's six wives. The marriage was later annulled in 1533 
because Catherine was unable to produce Henry's desired son.

With this bit of trivia in mind, let's uncover a few more 
facts from the world of royalty...

King George I of England could not speak English. He was 
born and raised in Germany and never learned to speak 
English even though he was King from 1714 to 1727. He left 
the running of the country to his ministers thereby creating 
the first government cabinet.


Queen Anne had a transvestite cousin, Lord Cornbury, whom 
she assigned to be governor of New York and New Jersey. 

Spain, or rather the part of it which was called Castile, once 
had a reigning queen, who had been a nun. She was Doña Urraca 
of the house of Navarre who reigned from 1109 - 1126, daughter 
of Alfonso the VI of Leon and Castile. Later on she married 
and had a son who took the throne, when she died.

"Old King Cole" was a real person. Coel was a fourth-century 
British prince who is said to be the father of St. Helen, 
who was the mother of Roman emperor Constantine. Coel 
appreciated music, which may be why the nursery rhyme makes 
mention of "his fiddlers three". 


King George V of England died on January 26, 1936, at 11:55 
P.M. It was revealed in 1986 that the King's doctor, Lord 
Dawson, had given him a lethal injection of cocaine and 
morphine. Dawson wanted the King to die before midnight so 
that his death could be announced in the morning Times 
instead of in a less prestigious afternoon paper. 

In most of Elizabeth I’s portraits, she is wearing enormous 
dresses with puffy sleeves. Although it wasn’t the fashion, 
she wore them to make herself look big and powerful so that 
people didn’t take advantage of her being a woman.
