HISTORY MEME | Charming Ladies [3/5} → Catherine Willoughby, Duchess of Suffolk (1519-1580)

Catherine was known for her wit, sharp tongue, and devotion to learning, by the last years of Henry VIII’s reign the Duchess of Suffolk was also an outspoken advocate of the English Reformation. She was certainly unafraid to speak her mind, informing her friend Lord Cecil that he was not bold enough. Diplomacy was well within her reach, but other things mattered more to Catherine. She was a deeply religious lady who took Hugh Latimer as Chaplain following the early death of her two sons. Catherine saw Henry VIII marry Anne, Jane, Anne, Katheryn and Catherine as well as Edward VI rise and fade. She saw her friend France’s daughter Jane become Queen and nine days later face rejection ending in execution. She and Bertie stayed on the Continent during Mary’s reign. She saw France’s second daughter Katherine and third daughter Mary both lose their lives for love under the fretful behavior of Queen Elizabeth I. ”We could almost wish that a lady of the courage and vivacity of Catherine of Suffolk had sat upon the English throne for a time. But the crown can strangle as much as empower. And perhaps she was able to accomplish more behind the scenes than she could ever had done on the fickle and turbulent stage of history.” (x)

Fringe 203: Fracture

…meanwhile, we go through our lives unaware. The enemy is among us and nobody’s doing anything about it. We don’t have any idea the end is coming. So we had to take matters into our own hands. We had to send them a message.
They told you I was crazy, didn’t they? The Pentagon. They said I’d had a psychiatric break. I told them what I’m telling you. That they are here. Collecting data. Making observations. That’s what’s in the briefcase. They’ve been planning for war. They’ve been passing the information via courier right under our noses. We don’t know who they are, but I can tell you what they want. They want to exterminate us. So they’re studying us…our culture, our technology, our science…and they plan to use it against us. One way or another. We’ll find out who they are. But by then, I suppose it won’t really matter, because whatever’s in those cases is gonna destroy us all.
