I, RED ROSE OF THE HOUSE OF TUDOR
York : Scholastic, 1999
am the forgotten Princess. I write this diary so that I can be perfectly
honest with someone. It is not a good idea to be too honest around
the royal court. My father is King Henry VIII and the year is 1544.
My father is now married to his 6th wife. I have an older sister,
Mary. She is not quite right in the head and torments me at times.
My brother is younger but it is he who is destined to rule England one
day. Father used to want me to rule but now he doesn't even acknowledge
me at times. As it stand, I will never rule England. Edward
is first in line, Mary is next and then me. I feel that I would be
a good queen but will never get the chance. This diary will record
my thoughts and my adventures as the forgotten Princess.
