Teasel’s Tudor Trivia – 8 December – Ivan the Terrible annoys Elizabeth I

Teasel is putting in so much work researching Tudor history. She really is a Tudor history buff now. Amazing for a former street dog!

    I have been really into this period with Ivan the Terrible and his proposal to her and also her relationship with Islam, very interesting. He wanted her as a wife but she offered poor Mary Sidney who had suffered terrible pox marks and he wasn’t impressed. Trust them to hurl insults.😂😂 🌹Thanks Teasel.
