In 1522, on this day the lady Anne Boleyn has just returned from Paris .. and she enchants Henry VIII. She gladly agrees to be his mistress and is soon the mother of a bouncing baby girl named Elizabeth.

Mistress Boleyn
by Jackie Rose
When Henry's legitimate son Edward VI dies, both Anne Boleyn's b*stard daughter and her sister Mary's illegitimate son are kept far from court. The crown passes to the only rightful heiress, a devoted Protestant named Lady Jane Grey, who is married to Guildford Dudley.

Since the Grey family was pretty productive, the House of Dudley lasts for centuries .. with no Catholic Stuarts, Protestant William and Mary or Bonnie Prince Charlie's revolt.
