Storyboard Text

  • Henry Becomes King
  • I suppose that's all there is to it, Sir Henry.
  • Well, since my brother's dead I guess I'll just have to marry you and be king!
  • Catherine's Child
  • A GIRL?! I don't want a girl! I want a proper man to be the heir of my throne!
  • It's a beautiful baby girl!
  • Edward Becomes King
  • Oh, why must I become king!*sigh*
  • King Arthur's untimely death causes his brother Henry to claim the throne and marry his wife, Catherine. This was necessary to regain ties between Spain and England.
  • Bloody Mary
  • How dare you dirty the streets with your scum!Only Catholics can live!
  • Henry wanted a boy to rule the kingdom, but Catherine could only produce a daughter named Mary. In his rage, Henry locks up Catherine and Mary in a tower. He marries many women later, but he executes them. Only one managed to give birth to a boy, but the child was sickly.
  • Elizabeth I
  • Will you be brave and fight the Spanish for me?
  • Henry passed away, and the only boy he gave birth to(Edward, the sickly one)inherited the throne. Edward, however, due to his poor condition, joined Henry at the young age of 18.
  • Jamestown
  • After Edward's death, there was no other choice but to crown Mary, Henry's first child. She was a devoted Catholic, and strongly disagreed with the Church of England.
  • Oh no!
  • After Mary I(Bloody Mary) died of cancer, Elizabeth(daughter of Henry's 2nd wife) took the throne. She was a powerful and beautiful ruler, and when the Spanish Armada attempted an attack, the British men gladly went to war for her and successfully drove away the Spaniards.
  • Anything for you, Your Highness!
  • Oh no! The English are too strong! Retreat!
  • One of Queen Elizabeth I's admirers made a voyage to America and discovered the land which soon became Jamestown.
  • We should call this place Jamestown, after King James!
