Most students of history are very familiar with the Tudor and Stuart royal families but not so much with the lesser mortals and their achievements have often been neglected over the centuries. There are plenty of both men and women in Government, Politics, Science, Religion, Literature and the Arts and the Military. Some became very wealthy and exercised a great deal of power. Others were executed for challenging the authority of the Tudor and Stuart monarchs.
