#1 I go with the theory that Liz number One was a hemorphidite, and was "confused" at an early age.

#2 So maybe she was Edward De Vere's Mother... and Father?

#3 Imagine a couple hundred years from now about the 'birther' documents. Shocking new theories indeed.

#4 Won't happen. The files will still be sealed and entombed deep within the D.C. Obama City crypt. Printed copies and fotos will be available in the book store adjacent the spiral minarets.

#5 Foolishness. Monarchs of that era had no personal privacy. There were a swarm of noblewomen who would have seen the Queen over the years in her altogether. Furthermore, the alleged cross-dresser was imprisoned for years at the hands of her sister the Queen, who definitely would have twigged immediately to the "fact" that her Protestant sister and heir presumptive was neither her sister nor any sort of relation.

#6 Mitch,

I agree. In addition to noblewomen there would have been dozens of servants who helped bath and perfume QE the I. There is also the matter of the Sir Robert Dudley who knew Liz both when she was little and when she was queen and who was, by his own words, in love with her (while married to another).

This 'theory' is really just a premise for a book based on a false history (like the ones written by Dan Brown)

#7 I wouldn't be surprised if she was barren (and not actually a virgin) but the she's a man baby theory is just stupid.

#8 like the ones written by Dan Brown

Hey, I love Dan Brown books. Especially the one about the intellectual professor who just happens to have a fitness skill that allows him, along with the spunky but gorgeous heroine, to thwart a deeply-hidden world-threatening conspiracy.

#9 Yeah, yeah. And Shakespeare's plays were really written by a not-so-nice Jewish girl from Aldgate. Link.

#10 I always thought Elizabeth wrote Shakespeare. But if Elizabeth wasn't actually Elizabeth ...

#12 At this point, what difference does it make?

#14 It says something that Rantburgers' most commented on item is this one.

#15 Because there's only so many times one can cluck over the other articles.

#16 Personally I'm both depressed and desolate over the amount of anti-Stratfordian sentiment displayed here.

#17 TW: I got as far as the statement alleging that his daughters weren't taught to read before my brain rebelled.

(It's not that Amelia Bassano isn't an interesting subject, I've just become hostile to the whole "but there's no way that idiot from Stratford could have done it" argument.)
