AN: So this is my new Tudors Story. It's a response to my own Daughters of Kitty Howard Challenge, and I've been plotting it out for quite a while. Updates will be sporadic at first, because of my exams, but I hope for that to improve after a while.
Huge Thanks go to both Reganx and VainxLifePoetess, who have helped enormously, both by prereading and brainstorming! Thanks a million, Girls.
And without further ado, Enjoy and please review!
I am Princess Elizabeth Tudor, daughter of King Henry the Eighth, by the Grace of God King of England, Ireland and France. My mother Katherine Howard was his Queen for twelve long years, but despite this, my father no longer allows her name to cross anyone's lips at Court for the fact of the matter is; three years ago, when Blanche was six, and I eleven, our mother was executed for treason, on our father's orders...
He executed her because he found out about her adultery with Thomas Culpepper, which resulted in her having twin girls, Eleanor and Jessica. Though the girls are not Princesses, they are my mother's daughters and because of this, Blanche and I look upon them as our sisters. Because of the lucky chance that Father banished Blanche and I for carrying Mother's blood in our veins without even doing the slightest thing to our household, not even to remove the visible proof of Mother's adultery, the twins still live with us, in plainly furnished rooms off our own, and I do my best to keep an eye on their attendants, to see that they are treated as the Queen's daughters, born in wedlock or not, ought to be. It is not easy, but by God, I am half Howard as well as being half Tudor. I am not one to shirk a challenge.
