Died on this day in 1599 aged 53 Elizabeth Stafford (my toy,wikipedia). Daughter of William, husband of Mary, sister of Anne, wife of Henry VIII; she was herself descended from Edward III. Elizabeth's parents were staunch protestants and left England for Geneva for the duration of the reign of Mary I, they returned to England after Elizabeth II became queen and Elizabeth and her mother were both ladies of the privy chamber. Elizabeth's husband was made a receiver for the Exchequer in Essex, Hertfordshire and Middlesex, but ended up fleeing to the continent owing the exchequer thousands of pounds, this did not cause Elizabeth to fall out of the Queen's favour however.

Born on this day in 1944 to Prince Christoph of Hesse and Princess Sophie of Greece and Denmark, Princess Clarissa of Hesse (my toy,wikipedia). Daughter of Sophie, sister of Philip, husband of the current queen. Does not merit own wikipedia page.
