Who Says Royalty Has It Easy?

Bohemian Queen Elizabeth had thirteen children. Even though she had attendants she still had to give birth thirteen times which can’t be easy even with all that help. Imagine keeping track of that brood? And can you only imagine the drama? No, we don’t have to imagine it these days; the tabloids spell it out for us, much to the cringing of the Royals who lose any semblance of privacy.

Bohemian Queen Elizabeth’s children’s’ uncle was Charles I, whom the Queen’s two sons fought a war for. Her second to the last child was Sophia. Sophia had a child whom she named George, who became King. I’ll call Bohemian Queen Elizabeth’s children, her lucky thirteen, because during the 1600’s many babies did not make it safely into this world. It must have been difficult, perhaps impossible during the Middle Ages for her to keep them safe.
