3. I've never understood the fascination with monarchies
he idea of hereditary legislators is as inconsistent as that of hereditary judges, or hereditary juries; and as absurd as an hereditary mathematician, or an hereditary wise man; and as ridiculous as an hereditary poet laureate. -Thomas Paine

Man will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest. -Denis Diderot

Elizabeth Knollys had important connections: not only was she a cousin of the Queen, but also a relation of Anne Boleyn, second wife of King Henry VIII. In her Tudor ruff, she rather resembled an early Kate Middleton, and soon became Sir Thomas Leighton's most valuable conquest, on or off the battlefield. Together the couple had three children - their son Thomas, and daughters Elizabeth and Anne.
