This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle, This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a wall Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happier lands,-- This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England. ~~William Shakespeare, Richard III

Favorite Queen Poll Results!

My Favorite English Queens poll has closed and we have a winner!

Eleanor of Aquitaine, the Duchess of Aquitaine and Henry II's queen, received 8 votes and edged out Elizabeth I (who ended up with 6 votes) during the last few days of voting.

Lady Jane Grey, the nine days queen, received 2 votes with Elizabeth Woodville, Edward II's Queen Isabella, and Marguerite d'Anjou (Henry VI's queen) each receiving one vote a piece.

Poor Mary Tudor did not receive a single vote.

Thank you to everyone who participated in my poll! Keep on the lookout for my next poll which should be up later today!
