And from the desk of stuff you missed in history class. It's the show where we explore the past one day at a time with a quick look at what happened today in history. Hello and welcome to the podcast, I'm Tracy v Wilson, and it's October twenty ninth, sir. Walter Raleigh was beheaded for treason on this day in sixteen eighteen sir. Walter Raleigh was the longtime favourite of Queen. Elizabeth the first he had been born in Devonshire to a family that was well established in the area, but not really wealthy or prominent they did have some pretty high up connections, though. One of these was the woman who served as Elizabeth's governess back when she was still a Princess rally also served as a captain in the army during the Tudor conquest of Ireland, and he was a captain of a unit that massacred Spanish and Italian troops were assisting Irish rebels there this massacre was horrifying. But it was also really how England treated rebels at the time. The response to rebellion was always swift and decisive and meant to deter any further rebellion by the middle of the fifteen eighty eighties though rally was well. Well, into Queen Elizabeth's good graces, he was knighted. She gave him all kinds of estates and land and monopolies on wine licenses and broadcloth exports. A lot of this was very lucrative after the death of his half, brother, sir. Humphrey Gilbert in fifteen eighty three Rollie also got a charter to colonize North America. This led to a series of expeditions that he planned and funded but didn't actually go on to you. What's now? The coast of North Carolina is included the infamous lost colony of Roanoke. And the reason that rally didn't personally go on any of these the Queen wanted him to stay with her in the early fifteen ninety s though rally almost lost the queen's favor forever by secretly marrying one of her maids of honour and having a child with her. He only started to earn the queen's forgiveness through more expeditions to try to seek treasure in the Americas and through fighting against Spain and the Anglo Spanish war. He had gotten some. Of his old positions and favors back. When Queen Elizabeth died in sixteen three and James I of England and sixth of Scotland became king almost immediately, sir. Walter Raleigh was suspected of treason. He was implicated in something called the main plot. This was a plot to overthrow the king and replace him with lady Arbella, Stuart this was a real plot. But Raleigh probably wasn't involved in it. But by the standards of the law of the day, he did commit treason. This is a very broad law. If you compass or imagined the death of the king that was treason and rally admittedly, did that he basically griped to his friends about how displeased he was with James the first and various ill wishes that he had toward him rally was sentenced to death. But given a last minute stay and instead sentenced to life in the tower of London where he spent the next thirteen years with the staff of servants and daily viz. It's from his wife and son and another son who was born to them in sixteen o five in sixteen sixteen Raleigh convinced King James that he could find gold in the Americas and James allowed him to leave prison and go look for it. And mount another expedition on one condition that condition was that he not attack or harm any Spanish vessels or settlements or people or any of that England was finally not at war with Spain. And James didn't really want that change at all. But this whole thing went wrong, sir. Walter Raleigh got sick and his second in command Lawrence kiemes, sometimes called Lawrence kimes, headed takeover kiemes attacked Spanish force, which was exactly the thing that they had been told explicitly not to do. And then on top of the fact that they attacked Spanish force. They did not find any gold rally was so unrelenting after this that keeps took his own life Spain demanded restitution for what rally in his expedition had done. And so instead of putting him on trial for that expedition in for those actions, they instead just revived the death penalty for treason that he had been given earlier on. So he was beheaded on October twenty ninth at sixteen eighteen and a very theatrical execution. His head was delivered to his widow in a bag and she reportedly kept it for the next twenty nine years until her own death rally himself, reportedly haunts, the tower of London today, of course, there is a whole lot more to the life of, sir. Walter Raleigh, and even to the main plot in this whole execution, and you can learn more about it in the October twenty second twenty eighteen episode of stuff you missed in history class.
