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.

"Combative instead of gallant and poetic. This didn't really work out though, and public opinion grew that Walter rally had been unfairly sacrificed to appease Spain, and that England had lost a worthy gentleman by executing him. His popularity really grew after his death, partly because he was so emblematic of this idea of a renaissance man and an Elizabethan. Right. He was handsome and valiant and chivalrous, and he was a writer and a statesman in addition to being an explorer. So he kind of had this whole very romanticized package, especially if you overlook some of the other parts of his life like the massacre that he helped orchestrate and all that brawling. I'm still back on Brawley Raleigh, which brings us to that cloak story. It is probably apocryphal, but it has really stuck around and it's often repeated. As fact. I know I heard it like as part of a lesson in elementary school. Oh yeah. On how to remember who he was. I found it in very reputable websites as like a real thing that happened. Yeah. And a big part of that is because based on rallies personality and everything we've talked about today, you can think yet, but he would probably be the type of guy who would do something kind of not just chivalrous, but also a little showy that way, like that's kind of show boat. He moved to be like no walk, beautiful clothes. And this cloak story. The earliest record of it we have is from history of the worthies of England written by Thomas fuller in sixteen sixty two. Since it's such an iconic story, it seemed like a good way to end today's show. So here's how Thomas fuller recounts it quote this captain Raleigh coming out of Ireland to the English court in good habit. His clothes being then a considerable part of his estate found the Queen walking till meeting with a plastic place. She seemed to scruple going there on presently Raleigh cast and spread his new plush cloak on the ground where I'm the Queen trod, gently rewarding him afterwards with many suits for his so free and seasonable tender of so fair afoot cloth this an advantageous admission into the first notice of a prince as more than half a degree to preferment deal. Also have listener mail that may or may not involve. Beheading. It doesn't involve any beheading, not would be extremely sad based on what this emails going to be about. Oh, phooey. I ruined it. No, this is one of those emails that I got, and it was just such a delightful Email that it completely brightened my day, and I wanted to share it with everyone because it made me that happy and the subject line of it is my dog. The historian hound. And it's from Rachel and Rachel says. So I just had to Email you guys because I have discovered the greatest thing first off. I love your show so much. I've always loved learning about a wide range of things in your podcast has so many topics and you to make it so easy to listen to, but that is not the real reason I am writing. You were my dog's favorite podcast. We got our dog Momo in may and originally she didn't find baths. But as we have gotten into a rainy and rather muddy fall, she has started to hate getting in the tub. I almost always listen to the podcast when I bathe her just to make it less of a chore for me. But the craziest thing has started to happen, whatever I put stuff you missed in history class on, she will actually willingly go into the bathroom instead of hiding under the table or in the closet. Not only that, but when I turn the water on, she just sits down and his fine normally shaking and trying to escape the whole time. Even with other podcasts on, I have to put it down to you to you must be dog whispers either that or my dog is a major history buff. Whatever the reason I'm so excited to have discovered a way to give her a bath that isn't stressful for either of us. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you, Rachel and Momo. PS MoMA would appreciate it. If you did more episodes on dogs or the history of some famous pooches p p s I've also included some pictures of a freshly bathed dog as proof, and it is followed by adorable picture of Momo dog who is wearing like a little doggy jacket with little dragon scales down the back, and I love it and I love Momo. Momo is the best dog Lewis a girl definitely like Momo is the best. I'm not even really a dog person, but I was so delighted by this whole situation that I was like looking at the best girl. I hope memo's listening to this right now being really excited. Yeah, I am a dog person and I know mos- painfully cute. Painfully I would go. So my rebuff met dog. The moment would be like no more history lady. Thank you so much Rachel for sharing the story with us and for sending the picture of Momo. It really did. Absolutely.

"James and his general ill wishing of the monarch. So even though his definitely real imagining of the death of the king was basically just a bunch of idle griping among his friends. It's still counted as treason under the law on December nine, six, three, Walter Raleigh, and the other condemned men were taken out to the scaffold one at a time to be executed. But each one was given a last minute stay and sentenced to imprisonment instead. Raleigh was sentenced to life in the tower of London. He spent the next thirteen years in prison in the tower. But honestly, this was a pretty luxurious incarceration. He had a large apartment suite with live in servants and a laboratory in the library and daily visits from his wife and their son. Walter who had been born in fifteen ninety three. They had a second son in sixteen o five while rally was still incarcerated and the rest of the family moved into a home on tower hill to be closer to the incarcerated welter and make it easier for all these daily visits to happen. Rally spent a lot of this time writing while in the tower. He wrote a morality book for boys called instructions to his son, and he also wrote the history of the world which started with creation and went to the second Macedonian war. In one Forty-six BC he dedicated it to James's son Henry who he also tutored while imprisoned Henry advocated for rallies release, but died in sixteen twelve before he had. Cured it. This, this history of the world was five volumes. Something like a million words long and was clearly meant to be the first in a series that was going to then go on to cover the rest of the history of the world after one forty, six. Finally, M16. sixteen rally convinced King James to let him out of prison. James needed money and Raleigh made it sound like he could locate riches in South America based on his previous voyage along the river. He was given leave to do this on one condition that he not attacks pain in any way. The Anglo Spanish war was finally over and James did not want to do anything to start it up. Again, plus Spain hidden insisted that if rally did cause any trouble to its subjects that he would be sent to Madrid for trial rally was released from the tower on March nineteenth of sixteen sixteen at the age of about sixty two. But this voyage went terribly Raleigh was on board as a civilian and his friend Lawrence kiemes who you'll also see spilled kimes with. No, I in it was the one in charge. I like how just not leaving the eye and there is a running theme in names. Kiemes attacked the Spanish. Colonial town of Santo may killing its governor, which was literally the thing they were not supposed to do. The younger Walter Raleigh was also with them on this expedition, and he was killed in the battle. Also they didn't find the gold mine that hit inspired them to go on this expedition in the first place, rally, berated KEMA. So incessantly about the death of his son and the failure to find a mine that he took his own life. Raleigh wrote a massive apology for this whole incident on the way home at once he got there, he tried to use his illness to by himself some more time, but Spain demanded retribution for what had happened on this footage and ultimately raleigh's death sentence from the main plot. Back in sixteen o three was reinstated. He was taken to the scaffold outside the palace of Westminster on October twenty ninth sixteen eighteen. He gave a speech before being executed, which was typical, but he didn't admit any guilt or ask. Ask for the king's forgiveness, which was not typical. Instead, according to newsletter writer, John Pori, the speech began quote, I give God, thanks. I am come to die in the light and not in the darkness. And then he went on to justify what he had done and forgive his accusers, but also to deny his own guilt for a total of about forty, five minutes. It went on to be a very dramatic and theatrical execution. Raleigh refuse to warm himself by the fire that was there specifically for that purpose reportedly he also asked to see the executioners acts and then after looking at it, he said, this is a sharp medicine, but it is a physician for all diseases and miseries. He comforted the executioner before placing his head on the stand. And then when the executioner didn't immediately begin the whole beheading process. Rally said something along the lines of strike man's strike and it took two blows to decapitate him. A bystander reportedly said, quote, we have not. Another head to be cut off. Again, in the words of John Pori quote, every man that saucer Walter Raleigh die said it was impossible for any man to show more decorum courage or piety, and that his death will do more hurt to the faction that sought it than ever his life could have done. Riley, body minus the head was buried at the church of St. Margaret's. Westminster, his head was placed in a red leather bag and given to his widow bests who reportedly kept it for the rest of her life, which was twenty nine more years. Often, this head is described as having been in bombed, and there are reports that she might have kept it in a glass case and not in a bag. There's like, this is one of those stories where I kinda go for real. The seems a little fishy to me and maybe apocryphal, but their son carroo took possession of this head reportedly after his mother's death and then had it buried with him when he died in sixteen sixty six at least that is. One possibility for the location of sir Walter rallies head Saint Mary's in west Horsely has also said it is the resting place of sir Walter rallies head because Kerry had it buried there when his own sons died during a plague. So it is unclear, but there are multiple sources that say, his head Sayed separate from his buddy and got carried around for a couple or three decades. I'm, I'm a little lost in thought over what one would do with a head of your beloved. Like do you look at it? You just leave it in the bag and pretend it's not there, but no, it's they're like, I know there's a lot of debts. There's a lot of debunking about various things about sir Walter rallies life. But this head I did not find any debunking. Today, sir. Walter Raleigh is one of the ghosts purportedly haunting the tower of London. He also reportedly haunts Beddington in south London where he owned land in where his wife had requested to be buried after the execution. There were also rumors that he was actually buried there in secret during his life rally had not been particularly beloved by the public at large, but his execution as indicated by some of the quotes we read earlier really earned him a lot of sympathy so much sympathy that the crown commissioned its own right up of execution, which made him sound arrogant and combative

"In February of fifty. Nine ninety five Walter Raleigh. Got the queen's permission to go on an expedition on the orange ochre river. And what's now Venezuela, which at the time was known as Jonah. He was searching for the fabled city of El Dorado and Robert Devereux. Earl of Essex went on this expedition as well. This is one of times that they were getting along. They did not find a city of gold though, but Raleigh did write a book called the discovery of Ghana, which came out in fifteen ninety six. This book was extremely popular than it was reprinted. Four times that year. The also seems to have brought an indigenous boy of about ten or twelve back with him who he adopted. The Anglo Spanish war was still ongoing and Raleigh, and Essex were both part of a raid on the Spanish port of Cadiz in fifteen ninety six which destroyed more than thirty Spanish ships. Rally was seriously wounded in the thought by which never fully healed. But this was a victory for England and a somewhat lucrative one. So he did start to win back some of the queen's affections. She eventually allowed him back to court and restored him to his position as the captain of the queen's guard with things starting to turn around after this Orinoco expedition and the raid on kitties soon, Elizabeth's was starting to bestow more favors on Wall Street rally again, including making him the governor of the isle of jersey in sixteen hundred. And she granted him an monopoly on playing cards as well. I'm telling you with the fabric in the wind and the playing cards. He really had the entertainment market cornered. Then in sixteen o one, the Earl of Essex rebelled against the Queen and Raleigh helped put down that rebellion, Essex was executed for treason. The Queen was devastated. But this meant that raleigh's chief rival at court was dead rally was widely reported as gloating over Essex as execution. In reality, he seems to have been a little more conflicted over it. The two men have really been close earlier on in their lives in Raleigh, didn't attend the execution, even though he was expected to as captain of the queen's guard. But rallies returns who relative favor at court was pretty short lived because Queen Elizabeth died in sixteen three. James, the I of England and six of Scotland became king and James didn't particularly like Raleigh. Raleigh also had a lot of enemies at court. Some of whom had convinced the king that Raleigh was ready to back rival claimant to the throne. This rumor was not particularly realistic. It involved a Spanish claimant to this Roane and rally had spent much of his military career fighting against Spain. He was also against the idea of England ending the ongoing Anglo Spanish war, and he even wrote a treatise about it. So the idea that he would support a Spanish monarch while also advocating continue. Doing the war with Spain, just doesn't make much sense. But soon rally had way bigger problems than these rumors in November of sixteen three. He was charged with treason and plot overthrew King James. This plot was known as the main plot m. a. i. n. it got its name because of its relationship to a lesser weirder plot, known as the bye plot. And that's by leg BYU e by. It cracks me up that the names that they settled on for these two plots are solely about their relationship to one another, and neither of them is about what the plot was actually meant involved. Yeah, the bye plot was discovered. I and it was a conspiracy among Catholic priests and lay people to kidnap the king in the spring of sixteen o three. Their goal was to force him to grant religious tolerance to Catholics and Puritans into place Catholics in office on July eighteenth, sixteen three, George, Brooke was giving testimony about this plot and as he was doing so he revealed that his brother Henry, Brooke Lord Kaban was involved in a whole different plot which was to kidnap the king murder him and replace him with lady Arbella Stuart. There were no real connections between the main plot and the biplane except for the fact that George and Henry Brooke were brothers and each of them was involved in one of these plots and that the authorities found out about the main plot while investigating the bye plot because of the connection between the brothers, Brooke, this is one of those things that if you wrote it in a forest, people would be like too far. The whole thing is so weird and convoluted during months of interogations Kaba made and retracted a whole huge string of changing confessions and accusations against rally. The most consistent and possibly believable charge was that Raleigh sought out a pension from Spain in exchange for providing information about British activities in the low countries or the Indies after Queen Elizabeth died Raleigh head once again, lost most of his estates and monopolies and other favors he needed money and it's possible that he needed it badly enough to be willing to exchange information for it either. Even to the Spanish rally was arrested based on condoms, accusations. I mean, even though they kept changing and he kept recanting them and then having a completely different story, the fact that he was implicating himself while making these accusations made people believe it more so rally was arrested. He was imprisoned in the tower on July twentieth of sixty three about a week later. He tried to stab himself with a table knife, but he struck a rib and didn't do a lot of lasting damage when Raleigh and the rest of the co conspirators were put on trial. He spoke in his own defense including answering some questions about his actions back in the siege of Smer wick in fifteen eighty. His response to these questions about whether he had acted appropriately was basically that he was following his commander's orders on November seventeenth rally in the co, conspirators in the main plot were found guilty and sentenced to death about two weeks later coven once again, retracted a lot of the accusations that he had made against Raleigh. So it's not. Really clear whether rally had any involvement at all in the main plot. Even this whole question about whether he was trying to get a pension from Spain. But regardless of that question, he was definitely guilty of treason under the terms of the law at the time because the treason act of fifteen thirty one included in its definition of treason. This quote, when Amanda compass or imagine the death of our Lord the king that was treason Raleigh had definitely been really vocal about his dislike of King James

"Like we said at the top of the show, the rallied family wasn't all that providence, but they did have some pretty high up connections. One of these connections was Katherine, Ashley. She was Walter's aunt on his mother's side and she had been Queen Elizabeth's governess back when she was still a Princess starting before welter was born. After Elizabeth became Queen, Ashley became the chief gentlewoman of the privy chamber and then the chief dental woman of the bedchamber. And it might have been Catherine Ashley. He introduced Walter Raleigh to Queen Elizabeth. The introduction may also have been a byproduct of rallies military service after the massacre at Smer wick rally and his men search through the bodies of the soldiers and collected letters and other documents to deliver to London rally was the one who carried them there, which he did in December fifteen eighty regardless of exactly how rally made his first connection to Queen Elizabeth he quickly became a favourite. He was very tall and handsome flamboyant, and quite the flatter. Soon. Elizabeth just didn't want him to leave her side and fifteen eighty two, Sir. Humphrey Gilbert put together a scheme to resettle English Catholics in North America. Rally invested some money in it, but the Queen forbade him from personally going on the voyage, whence, you sent him on a mission to the low countries. Later that year she told him to write to her every day through the fifteen eighty s Raleigh continued to get more and more recognition and favors from the Queen. He was knighted on February six fifteen eighty five. He was also made warden of the stanleys or coal mining districts in Devon and Cornwall. He was also named Lord Lieutenant of Cornwall and vice Admiral of the west on top of all that the Queen granted rally multiple estates in England and Ireland, including Durham place on the strand, which is one of her favourite residences. She also gave him a monopoly on the sale of wine licenses and on the export of broadcloth at a lot of this was very lucrative. I mean fabric and wine, and he's got this thing covered in the middle of all of this in September fifteen eighty three, Sir, Humphrey Gilbert drowned in a shipwreck. He had recently claimed Newfoundland for England, and he had a Royal charter to try to colonize it after his death. Raleigh was granted a charter to explore and colonize North America. He was given, quote, free liberty and license from time to time, and at all times, forever hereafter to discover search, find out n. views such remote, heathen, and barbarous lands countries and territories not actually possessed of any Christian prince nor inhabited by Christian people. This was England's first meaningful attempt to establish a colony in North America as half brother had been kind of dabbling at this idea of colonizing Newfoundland. And there had, of course been lots of voyages back and forth between Europe and North America. But in terms of England attempting to establish a colony, this is. The first serious effort. So rally, I mounted a reconnaissance expedition in fifteen eighty four and that landed on the Outer Banks of what's now North Carolina. This reconnaissance expedition returned with at least two indigenous men known as Manlio and want cheese. They stayed at one of raleigh's residences when they arrived in England. Manto in one cheese were two of the first indigenous Americans to be brought to England, and they each obviously have their own stories outside the scope of Walter raleigh's, both of them return to North America with rallies next voyage in fifteen eighty five. The fifteen eighty-five voyage was intended to establish a colony, but this colony failed. The indigenous peoples in the area were divided in their opinions of the colonists. And this was also true of Mantilla would want cheese Manlio stayed with the colony to work as an interpreter and guide. But once she's left and warned his people that the English should not be trusted aside from this division and their relationships with the indigenous people in. The area. The colony was also struck by illness and a lack of planning and supplies. Windsor. Francis Drake coincidentally passed through the area on his way back from the Caribbean. Most of the colonists took the opportunity to go back to England with him. Mansio returned to England with sir. Francis Drake also rally planned one more expedition to North America and Mantilla traveled on that expedition. These colonists arrived in August fifteen eighty seven and became the famous lost colony of Roanoke. The colony's governor. John White was sent back to England for more supplies, but England was at war with Spain by the time that he got there and when white finally got back to North America in fifteen ninety, the colony was gone with the word Kroto in carved into a post as the only evidence that anyone had ever been. There. Archaeologist tried to work out exactly what happened in this comes up from time to time on earth. It's one of every history buff favourite mysteries. Partly to bring tourists seeing outdoor drama and to launch an entire TV series. So these expeditions are y, Walter Raleigh is often incorrectly credited with introducing potatoes and tobacco to England and Ireland specifically or to Europe in general. But number one, he didn't go on any of these personally. The Queen did not want him to go, but potatoes were introduced to Spain or than a decade before these voyages took place. And I had also established trade with Spain, four rallies voyages. So it's entirely possible that there were potatoes in Ireland before ships from raleigh's expeditions arrived there with potatoes onboard, and there were definitely potatoes elsewhere in Europe for sure way before any of this happened. Tobacco was also introduced to Europe long before rallies and had been grown in England for more than ten years before his first ships left for North America. Rally probably did help popularize its use in England though. Oh, so like I said earlier, Walter rally didn't go on any of these actual voyages. And even though they weren't particularly successful, his position continued to rise at court while he stayed behind and fifteen eighty six or fifteen eighty seven Raleigh was made captain of the queen's personal guard. The Anglo Spanish war started just before that happened in fifteen eighty five and Raleigh served on the war council. He also helped organize the Devon militia to fight against the Spanish armada in fifteen eighty eight. He also commissioned a ship called the ark rally that he gave to the Queen who renamed it the ark Royal and made it the flagship of the British naval fleet. Throughout all of this rally was making friends and enemies at and outside of court. He was friends with poet. Edmund Spenser and introduced him to Queen Elizabeth Spencer was later named poet laureate and he wrote the fairy Queen. One of the great epic poems in English. In part as an allegory about. Elizabeth, the first and the tutors. Raleigh also wrote a couple of Commendatore sonnets for the fairy Queen, and he makes a number of appearances in Spencer's work. And as a side note, Spencer also served England during the Desmond rebellion as Lord grace secretary. If you had to read the fairy Queen, just hypothetically, when you were studying literature in college and you didn't find it a particularly enjoyable experience to just blame Walter Raleigh, having made all that possible. And I do. So on the other end of the spectrum was Robert Devereux Earl of Essex. He was sometimes rallies friend and sometimes really his adversary and always his rival for the queen's attention. The disputes that rally started having with Essex almost led them to a duel, and then there was the relationship that caused rally to fall out of the queen's favour, almost for good. He started a secret relationship with Elizabeth Throckmorton known as Bess. One of the queen's maids of honour. She wasn't supposed to marry without the queen's approval. But when she became pregnant with raleigh's child, they got married in secret and Bess left the court to give birth best delivered a son named Dame ary. We're not sure on that pronunciation on March twenty. Ninth fifteen ninety two. And this was during the better part of rallies relationship with the Earl of Essex, who was the baby's godfather best came back to court in April and. Dan Walzer both tried to keep their marriage and baby secret from the Queen. Of course, that idea was doomed to failure. Walter and best apologized the Queen. After she found out that they were secretly married and had a secret baby. But neither of them seemed all that sincere about their apology and not just made things worse. So Queen Elizabeth had been imprisoned in separate quarters in the tower of London. Walter was released from the tower after one of his ships returned to port with a massive Portuguese ship into the Mudra deals. There were concerned that rallies crew who's going to mutiny. So he was released to go down to the docks and try to keep everything in order. And once the Queen took most of the treasure, she finally released both Walter and best from the tower. Although she banished Walter from court and stripped him of all his estates and privileges the rallies went back to his home of Devonshire and sadly, Damer rally died while still a baby while banished from court. Walter rally spent some time. Hanging out with some of the most notable literary figures of the time including William Shakespeare and Ben Jonson. Although he was banned from court until fifteen ninety seven rally figured out a way he might win back the queen's good graces in fifteen ninety five and we're gonna get to that after we take another little pause for a sponsor break.

You missed in history class from how stuff works dot com. Hello and welcome to the podcast. I'm Tracy v Wilson, then I'm Holly fry as spokes. Probably. No. I grew up in North Carolina and its capital Raleigh is named after sir, Walter Raleigh. And aside from that fact, here are the things I could've told you about our Walter Raleigh before researching today's podcast, number one, he wrote some poems. I probably could not name any of them. There's actually a reason for that. He on purpose didn't publish most of them during his lifetime. He tried to keep his name out of it. But anyway, I knew he wrote some poems couldn't really say which ones number two, he was Queen Elizabeth, the first favorites. And this one time he put a cloak down over a puddle, so she wouldn't get her feet wet. That's probably not even true, and it never made sense to me as a child because I was like closer, not waterproof. She's just going to step on that and her feet are still going to get wet, and his cloak is ruined. So I'm going to get a little nerdy with you right now. Oh yeah. Because a lot of times the textile weaves at that time were really tight compared to what we would have today. So for at least a moment, it would have prevented water from seeping through. Awesome. Would not have been waterproof? No, but I long as it took her delicate little feet to cross over the offending puddle, she probably would have been covered. Thank you for resolving that question I've had since I was like maybe five, but anyway, that's probably not even sure we're going to get to that later. And the number three is sort of a like, blah, blah, something Roanoke colony. Just had a very vague understanding of, sir Walter rally, even though I grew up in a place whose capitals named after him among other things, sir. Walter Raleigh was accordion and an explorer and a historian and a member of parliament's, which we're not going to even get into that park today really at all. Also a soldier. He was part of England's defense against the Spanish armada as well as the Tudor conquest of Ireland. Some of which was truly horrifying very conveniently since this episode is coming out in October according to some people, he's a ghost now and we are also coming up on the four hundred anniversary of his beheading, which is why he's making an appearance on the show today. These a scary, headless. Ghosts is Walter Raleigh was born about fifteen fifty four in Devonshire England. Some sources put that day as January twenty second. But the year remains a little murky. His parents were Walter and Catherine Raleigh, and the younger Walter was the third of their surviving children. He also had half. Dealings from his parents. Previous marriages, Walter was the youngest boy of all of these siblings and half siblings. Their family was part of the Protestant gentry, and they weren't particularly well off or prominent, but they had been in Devonshire for a very long time and they had a lot of connections to people who were more well off and more well known. We don't know much at all about Walter's childhood or use, but he eventually went to Oriole College Oxford. He didn't finish his studies though in fifteen sixty nine. He went to France with the Devon volunteers to fight on the side of the Huguenots in the French wars of religion. He served for about five years, seeing two major battles and surviving the Saint Bartholomew day massacre in fifteen seventy two in fifteen seventy six rally was back in London, and he was in rolled at the middle temple, which was one of the four inns of court. But it doesn't seem like he was really studying law while he was there, which would have been a normal thing to be doing. At the middle temple, he was more treating it kind of like a gentlemen's club. Even though he never seems to have finished a course of study at Oxford or at the middle temple, he would go on to really develop a reputation for being very highly educated. Maybe he's just at PR super smart. You guys have studied a bunch who get a drink rally published his first poem in the fifteen seventy s as well. It was printed in the preface to the steel glass by George Gascoyne and the poem appears under the heading Walter Raleigh of the middle temple in combination of the steel glass with Raleigh spelled r. a. w. l. e. y. this is one of no joke seventy different spellings of Walter raleigh's name in the historical record. And as a side, note, the common spelling of our l. e. g. h. is not one that he used himself. He never signed his name with an eye in rally is also pronounced slightly differently depending on where you were from. I will. Tell you. I struggle with it because we have a cat named Raleigh. I see that way all the time. Even though he is in fact named after Imaginaire really Crump, but saying it really just doesn't feel right with the cat. I don't know why. Well, and an odd thing that I discovered, even though a lot of search technologies are good at interpreting your different spellings to give you results that are what you're looking for. There are meaningfully different responses for Walter Raleigh spelled r. a. l. e. g. h. and Walter rally spelled r. a. l.. E. v. h. with no, I on it, which meant that I got review all of my searching partway through this process. Why didn't I find this paper before? Because I had an eye in it in fifteen seventy eight rally and his half brother, Sir. Humphrey Gilbert went on an expedition possibly to try to find the northwest passage. But this expedition was largely a failure. Storms forced their little fleet of ships back to Plymouth almost immediately after they left and then they turn to what multiple writers describe as unauthorized privateer eating against Spanish ships, natural who decided to call it unauthorized privateer ring. That's just piracy. This unauthorized privateer ring brought them a lot of casualties and very little reward. So they're reception wasn't particularly favourable when they got back to England plus rally who had already had a reputation for being stubborn and hotheaded kept getting in trouble for disturbing the peace and dueling. He wound up spending time in both fleet and Marshall see prisons for brawling, possibly to try to keep him out of all this trouble. Some of raleigh's friends secured a commission for him as a captain in the army, and he was sent to Ireland. The Tudor, conquest of Ireland was going on. It had started long before Queen Elizabeth ascended to the throne in fifteen fifty. Eight part of Ireland was solely under English control in the English part of Ireland, which was mostly around Dublin, was known as the pale. So the Tudor conquest was meant to expand the pale and also to solidify English rule within the pale side. Note a lot of. People believe that the phrase beyond the pale is a specific reference to this part of Ireland in the areas beyond it. But according to the Oxford English dictionary that is not supported by historical evidence, it is probably an association that people made leader during the Tudor, conquest, the province of Munster in the south west of Ireland sought to major rebellions against English rule, and they were known as the Desmond rebellions. The first one took place from fifteen sixty nine to fifteen seventy three rallies half brothers. Humphrey Gilbert was knighted for his service and that rebellion. The second Desmond rebellion started in fifteen seventy nine, and it was fueled both by resistance to English rule. And by the Catholic counter reformation, Gerald FitzGerald, the Earl of Desmond had gotten the support of the pope and of king. Philip the second of Spain. In this uprising, rally served with the English army during several engagements and the second Desmond rebellion. But the most notorious of these engagement was the siege of Smer wick troops from SP. Spain and Italy who were aiding the Fitzgerald's were being garrisoned at summer wick and Queen Elizabeth had sent English troops to put down this rebellion including dealing with these troops when the Spanish and Italian forces stood down Lord, Arthur grey, the Lord deputy of Ireland ordered for all of them to be massacred. This was one hundred percent. How England dealt with rebels at the time, had England been at war with Spain or Italy. The soldiers would have been offered some protection under the rules of war, but they weren't in the crowns view. They were helping Royal subjects rebel against their monarch. So they needed to be dealt with quickly efficiently, decisively, seriously tutor. England's treatment of Irish rebels could be extremely brutal. In the first Desmond rebellions. There Humphrey Gilbert was known to decapitate civilians who supported the rebels, and then display their heads on pikes along the path to his tent to companies totaling about one hundred eighty. Men were tasked with. Killing the enemy soldiers at Smer wick Walter Raleigh was one of the two captains in charge the English army massacred about six hundred people after this siege about one hundred of them were women and children. Rally was also one of the English officers granted lands in Ireland. After the end of the second Desmond rebellion. His allotment was actually the largest of any of the ones that were granted out of the Munster lands that were claimed after all of this was over, he also helped govern the province of Munster after this. And when he went back to London, he positioned himself as an expert in Irish affairs, which might have been part of what got him into such close confidence with Queen Elizabeth. And we're going to talk about that a little bit more. After we, I pause for a little sponsor break. It's Barrington day, Thurston host of spit iheartradio's newest podcast.

"walter raleigh" Discussed on Based On a True Story
"Even though rest is made up, that doesn't mean the plot. He sent to England to carry out against Elizabeth is fictional. It's just that he was not the leader of the plot, and that leads us right back into the movie because in the neck. I scene, we see Thomas Babington in the crowd. It's the sort of brief shot that you'd never know who he was. The movie doesn't explain who this random person is in the crowd. But the only reason that we know it someone important to the movie is because it's an actor that we know in this case, Eddie red main, although there's one major difference between the character of Thomas Babington and the real person that he's based on his name wasn't Thomas. It was Anthony. It was Anthony Babington who was the chief conspirator not someone named Robert reston, like we see in the movie. Hence why we know of this plot today as the Babington plot back in the movie next introduced to another major character. It's Clive, Owens character, Walter Raleigh, the movie portrays him at first as sort of a man of mystery. He first encounters Cate Blanchett's version of the Queen by laying down a cloak in her way. Then he says there was a puddle there. That's why he laid down the cloak. After Elizabeth passes, we see Walter pick up the cloak, but the movie never really shows us if there really was a puddle. There. The rest of the ground looks pretty dry though that scene is all made up. In fact, most historians believe the real Walter Raleigh came into the picture as far as Queen Elizabeth was concerned around the year fifteen eighty, but five years before the movie's timeline at that time, Walter was rather outspoken against the way. The English were handling things in Ireland, something he saw firsthand as he fought the Irish rebels that brought him to the attention of the Queen. And by the time fifteen eighty two rolled around, he had earned the queen's favor. Just like the movie implies here. Walter was an explorer who had traveled to the new world by the movies timeline though. Although there were some conflicting reports in my research, most sources I could find mentioned a fifteen seventy eight trip to America with his half brother man named Sir Humphrey Gilbert. It seemed to be a common belief that this voyage was what made Walter want to go back to the Americas to establish a colony. We did see this burning passion and Clive Owen character in the film and not to get too head of our story. But the movie doesn't really ever mentioned the colony that he eventually set up. You've probably heard of it though. That was the colony at Roanoke island, which would end up being the mysterious lost colony. But that's a story for another day. In the movie after seeing Walter Raleigh, we see a procession of possible suitors for Elizabeth king. Philip the second's representatives the ambassadors from Spain, king Eric of Sweden, Ivan, also known as Ivan, the terrible czar of Russia. None of the actual people are there, but rather on voice from the country carrying a painting of their leader. The one Elizabeth likes is Archduke Charles of Austria. She asks that he visit her court so she can see him in person as we learned in the Elizabeth episode from the first movie in this two parter, Queen Elizabeth had quite a few suitors, and it is true that Archduke Charles of Austria was one of them. So was king Eric, the sixteenth of Sweden and king. Philip the second of Spain, not so much Ivan, the terrible from Russia because he died of a stroke on March twenty. Eighth fifteen eighty four, four, the time onto the movie or maybe it's that he died after the unveil was sent to England and the news of his death. Hadn't spread yet. In either case, most historians today do not consider Ivan to be one of Elizabeth's suitors. Before we continue though as a little side. Note, there's a sequence, whereas we see Clive Owens version of Walter Raleigh, bringing gifts from the new world to Elizabeth potatoes and tobacco. Then he says, he named the land Virginia in honor of Elizabeth the virgin Queen. That might be true. The truth is we don't really know for sure what we do know is that it was around fifteen eighty three. When Elizabeth granted Walter the rights to start a colony north of the Spanish in Florida. Some historians think that he came up with the name Virginia because of Elizabeth being the virgin Queen, like the movie says, others think that perhaps the name came from Elizabeth herself. It wasn't Walter who came up with the name at all. So others think perhaps it's none of the above and the name came from a word in one of the native American languages nearby. In either case, though, since it was Elizabeth who granted Walters trip to the new world in fifteen eighty three, he wouldn't have been a brand new acquaintance of the Queen in fifteen eighty five. Like we saw in the move. No one. There's also plenty who believe it was Walter who introduced both potatoes and tobacco to the English after returning from Virginia. But then again, we also don't know because still others insist potatoes came to the English from Spain as for tobacco other stories yet suggest it wasn't until fifteen eighty six when Walter introduced it to England. So as far as we can tell, there's quite a few conflicting stories about Walter Raleigh and whether or not he was the first bring potatoes and tobacco to England or not. It's a good story that just doesn't seem to be enough documentation to really prove it one way or the other. Back in the movie. We see the relationship between Walter and Elizabeth grow closer through one of Elizabeth's ladies in waiting. Her name is also Elizabeth, but everyone calls her best. She's played by ABBIE Cornish in the film, and her character's full name is Bess Throckmorton while best was a real person, it's worth pointing out that some historians think her name might have been Throgmorton instead of Throckmorton. And since that's a minor detail for the sake of consistency, I'm gonna call her Throckmorton throughout this episode since that's what the movie went with. MAC in the movie were back with Mary Stuart, when we see her refer to Tom Hollander character, sir, Amos polit as her jailer. This scene is not one of historical significance, but it sets up Paulette as the one overseeing Mary's imprisonment and furthers the storyline that Mary Stuart is sending letters to the plot against Elizabeth, and that's true. Most historians, believe poets beliefs were more in line with Calvinism than product. Though, but without opening up a line of discussion on religious the for the purpose of our store today, it's enough to know that was very strongly anti-catholic. In January of fifteen eighty five. Paulette was appointed as the jailer of Mary Stuart. Remember she wasn't at fathering gay castle. Like the movie shows though she was at Charlie castle, but that part of the stories of minor details. Paula was her jailer at both Charlie and fathering gay as for the letters. Mary did send letters to the people behind the plots against Elizabeth and you'll notice I said, plots, plural. We'll learn more about why that is here in a moment. Back in Elizabeth's court according to the movie best being the liaison between Elizabeth and Walter leads to plenty of isolated moments between Walter and bests. This lead says some rather intimate moments between Walter and Bess. We see this in the movie as Walter consoles Bess after she found out about the death of her cousin Francis, we haven't talked about him too much, but we see him involved in a plot against Elizabeth and moments of him asking best for help. To get back in good favor with Elizabeth. Oh, and Francis struck Morton is played by Stephen Robertson in the movie while those specific scenes between best and Francis were made up, the basic plotline that we see happening here has some basis in truth. What the movies referring to here is what we know today as the Throckmorton plot as you can probably guess is named after Francis Throckmorton and his brother Thomas who doesn't show up in the movie at all Francis and Thomas devise the plan in Paris where they actually met a spy for Mary Stuart named Thomas Morgan. The basic idea for the plane was that the two brothers with backing from Spain and the pope would help the English Catholics revolt against Elizabeth while simultaneously having Francis himself used the connection to Elizabeth ruse cousin best to assassinate the Queen. All of this would help put Mary Stuart on the throne of England while removing Elizabeth from power. Probably the biggest difference between the plot that we saw in

So they're all kind of playing this game about how can I be last last one to arrive on set and therefore the most important. So it's really absurd. I mean, it's so bizarre. What's wrong with you.

He's one of my favorites because like ultra all alter my addle essence and college years always one of my favorites, but he's shown himself like in the last ten fifteen years to have so much depth and range that I think you didn't originally know he had and I find him fascinating as an actor. I think so honest, I think some of the movies done that have been on the more serious side, lots and translations. He's just, I just find him incredibly compelling to watch, and I love his choices. I think it's humor is amazing. So yeah, he would be dream to work with one of my favorite movies of Ville Marie. It's it's is. It is movie, didn't really do that will in the movie theaters and it didn't get a lot of love. Quick change. Chris as one of my favorites. It's one of my favorite thing all the time.

Yeah, it's fabulous. I've just watched I I was telling you, I got a a teenage son, so I'm trying to expose him to all these great eighty to ninety movies.
