Question from Jill - Execution of Robert Aske


There is little about Robert Aske (leader of the Pilgrimage of Grace) on the internet and every source states something different about his death. He was either hung from Norfolk Castle in chains, hung in York or burned at the stake.
Can anybody tell me which it was? It would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Question from Jill - Lists of locations of courts


Does anyone know a book or website that lists the location of Henry's court (as well as the courts of his wives and children) during their lives? I know they usually moved the court twice a year but would like to know specific dates and places.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Question from Micaela - Elizabeth I and Katherine Howard


i'm wondering if Elizabeth I knew that she was related to Katherine Howard, seeing as her mother Anne Boylen and Katherine Howard were first cousins so what that make Elizabeth I and Katherine Howard? Also some resources spell the names of all the Katherines as Catherine not Katherine,so I'm wondering which is the correct spelling? I'm a fifteen year old girl and am a history buff, I especially like learning about the Tudors and Stuart familes as those families represent my mother's family's native countries (I'm Canadian). I'm not doing a project for school -I'm in grade 8- but one of the sections of my Social Studies course has a lesson on the Tudors, so this might help a little with school if ever I decide to do a project on the Tudors!



Question from Tracey - Portrait of Mary Queen of Scots


I am looking for information regarding a specific portrait of Mary, Queen of Scots. This portrait shows Mary herself on one side, but then when the portrait is 'shifted', a skull emerges...I believe over her face.

Where is this located? Who painted it? Is it ever on display?

Thanks!
Tracey
