"Every renaissance comes to the world with a cry, the cry of the human spirit to be free"- Anne Sullivan

The Renaissance Era was a time of rebirth for the love of the arts. Great minds came out of this time including Leonardo, Michaelandgelo and Thomas Moore. While those three men are not the main men of that era or even the most remembered sometimes they are important non the less. With many artists today it is forgotten that without these minds, things would not be looked at the same way, thought the same way, or even expierenced the same way.

Thomas Moore was around during the reign of Henry the VIII of England. He wrote the famous book, " Utopia" and was often at the side of the king because the King liked his unique ways of looking at life and the stars. Thomas Moore was a treasure when Henry was married to his first wife, Catherine of Aragon, but when he divorced her to marry Anne Boleyn his star faded into obliviance. He was executed for not recognizing Henry the VIII as the Surpreme Head of the Church of England and renouncing his Catholic faith.

Once Henry the VIII died his throne went to his son Edward who died at a younge age and then it went to his eldest daughter Mary. Mary was of the Catholic faith and burned many heretics to try to rid Enlgand of the bad. She is known as Bloody Mary and died after an eight year rein. Once she was dead the throne was then passed onto her younger half sister Elizabeth. Good Queen Bess had a marvelous 45-year rein and brought along Englands Golden Age. Elizabeth was known as Englands greats ruler of all time bring along peace, prospereity and religious tolerence, and yes she was a female.
