Anne_Askew Does anyone find her kind of arrogant? (page: 1 2) 38 Apr 15 2011, 1:43 PM EDT by surelythemosthappy

She seems so full of herself. The way she strutted into the celebration put her hand on her hip ( which by the way I found to be obnoxious and very un lady like.) and looked around like she owned the place just annoyed me. I find it hard to believe that Jane Seymour would choose someone like Ursula to be her lady in waiting.

The idea that Henry could have had a mistress while married to Jane got me researching and it seems there was a hint of something with a lady in waiting called Anne Basset. First of all it was reported in a primary source (Wriothesley's chronicle) that just a week after the publication of Henry's marriage to Jane the King met two young beautiful ladies who made him sigh and say he was "sorry that he had not seen them before he was married".

It was perhaps the two daughters of Lady Lisle who had sent the quails to Jane later when she was pregnant.This was done as a reminder to Queen Jane of Lady Lisle's suit for her daughters, Anne & Catherine Basset. Jane chose Anne only and the day after she was sworn as one of her servants, Henry was said to remark that Anne was "far fairer" than her rejected sister.

After Jane's death, Henry had Jane's ladies kept together including Anne Basset (by name) and was known to spend time with the ladies in "splendid banquets". It was speculated in the Lisle letters that Anne or one of these ladies kept him company while he slept.

So perhaps the Ursula Misseldon character is not completely out of left field?

is it me or do u think that Lady Ursula was there for one thing and one thing only. Just to get into bed with the king. Did you see the way she looked at the king on his own wedding. When I first saw her I could see that she was going to be trouble.
