Victor Amadeus I, Duke of Savoy (1587-1637) from 1630-37. He was titular King of Cyprus and Jerusalem. He was also known as the Lion of Susa. Son of Charles Emmanuel I, Duke of Savoy and Catherine Micaela of Spain,
Mary Tudor married Prince Philip I of Spain & then said that she was pregnant. In the 9th month of her pregnancy she still hadn’t given birth. Mary’s answer? She issued a decree that God had told her that her child wouldn’t be born until all of the Protestants were punished. 2 months later, hundreds of Protestants were extra crispy, but there was still no baby. Her thin frame finally left the castle & ordered the Nation to never speak about the pregnancy again. #historicaltyranny
