The Queen watched Mordred with a gaze of triumph, interest and a glint of cunning appeared in her eye. Her plan was working - she knew the Power that Areha held and what it would mean for the Royal Family if Mordred were to marry Areha and produce a child. Soles had to keep her countenance composed at the idea but she was smiling internally.

She shone in beauty, but not one from the outside, for in fact she was rather ordinary, but inside shone a beauty of compassion and kindness and strength.

In Anne Boleyn's time, the fashion was to tuck the longer necklace inside the square neckline of the gown.

Jane Seymour (c. 1508 – 24 October 1537) was the third wife of Henry VIII.  She was not educated as highly as Henry's previous wives, Catherine of Aragon and Anne Boleyn. She could read and write a little. She died 30 y.o.,less than two weeks after the birth of her son who reigned as Edward VI. She was the only one of Henry's wives to receive a queen's funeral, and was buried beside Henry in St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, as she was the only consort to have a male heir to survive…

Sweet docile Jane Seymour, Henry's favourite wife and the only one who was kind to the motherless and lonely Princess Mary. She died giving birth to Henry's longed for male heir, later King Edward VI.
