King Henry VIII's 50 Year Coronation Celebration took place in London, England in 1561 June.


Queen Elizabeth decided to celebrate her father's coronations and to remind the people of England she is King Henry VIII's daughter and blood. Even if some consider her a bastard for not recognizing her mother and father's marriage.

Befor the celebration Elizabeth enlisted Lady Lola to help her get revenge on Beatrice Somerset, who was a former close friend of the Queen's mother, Anne Boleyn who accused her of adultly when on the stand, and it lead to her beheading.

Half way into the party, Queen Elizabeth announced she was going to give a golden apple to the first 100 people in line during the party. While Beatrice Somerset was in line, Lady Lola tried to put pearls into her purse. She broke the necklace and, in the commotion the Queen had them both arrested.

While in jail, Lola expressed a man had told her to do it. She thought it was a game between the two. Beatrice told her how she believed the Queen was behind it. She had betrayed her mother, Anne Boleyn who was her best friend and in-turn, helped in her beheading.

Three days later, she was released from jail after she returned the lands she had been given from King Henry VIII for her help as penance.
