    (1)

    Lo I the man, whose Muse whilome did maske,
    As time her taught, in lowly Shepheards weeds,
    Am now enforst a far unfitter taske,
    For trumpets sterne to chaunge mine Oaten reeds,
    And sing of Knights and Ladies gentle deeds;
    Whose prayses having slept in silence long,
    Me, all too meane, the sacred Muse areeds
    To blazon broad emongst her learned throng:
    Fierce warres and faithfull loues shall moralize my song.

    1. It is from the First Book of the Faerie Queene by Edmund Spenser. It was written in a form that has become to be known as the “Spenserian Stanza” similar to a canto or even an opus. I assume that it was written for Good Queen Bess.

    2. i) Maltilda (disputed as she was never crowned in the 1100’s and was married to one of the Henry’s who were Holy Roman Emperors

    ii) Lady Jane Grey (disputed and never crowned) married to Lord Dudley although she was only about 16 when she had her head chopped off

    iii) Mary 1 married to Phillip of Naples/Spain
