In today's Claire chats video talk, I delve into the Vita Mariae Angliae Reginae, Robert Wingfield of Brantham's account of Mary I's successful coup d'état in July 1553. It is a fascinating primary source as it gives us details of Mary's side of things, what was happening in East Anglia then.
In the video, I talk about a Claire's chat talk I did on the timeline of the events of summer 1553 and you can click here to view that.
Diarmaid MacCulloch's Latin transcription and English translation of Robert Wingfield's Vita Mariae Angliae Reginae can be found in Camden Miscellany, XXVIII, CS, 4th ser., 29, July 1984, pp. 181–301. I got my copy from AbeBooks.com
Thank you Claire. What an informative talk on the loyalty and love Mary I inspired. It is a real eye opener.
