Events of January and February 1554 – 19th February

Simon Renard mentioned Jane is his report to Prince Philip of Spain,

‘At present there is no other occupation than the cutting off of heads and inflicting exemplary punishments Jane of Suffolk, who made herself Queen, and her husband, have been executed; Courtenay is in the Tower; and this very day we expect the Lady Elizabeth to arrive here, who they say has lived loosely like her mother and is now with child. So when all these heads are off no one will be left in the realm able to resist the Queen.’
