Bacon is Shakespeare

“I, Prince Tudor, Wrote Shakespeare”–Francis Bacon’s Life Story
Her Majesty surely put great weight upon the vain and empty theories of the seers she most wished to have cast her horoscope. These made so great hate in our heart against the men who fed a most unwomanly notion—renown as Maiden Queen—as to make us fear own own thoughts. / The would-be virgin Queen, (not liking our people’s hearts to be set upon a king), before my A B C’s even were taught to me, or the elements of all learning, instruct ted my tutors to instill into my young mind desire to do as my foster father had done, aspiring to high political advancement, look for enduring renown there; not dreaming, even of lack wherein I should look for many honors, since I was led to think I was born to nothing higher. / A fear seemed to haunt [Elizabeth] that a king might suit the mounting ambition s of a people that began to seek New Atlantis beyond the western seas. Some doubtless longed for a royal leader of the troops, when war’s black eagles threatened the realm, which Elizabeth met in two ways—by showing a kingly spirit when subjects were admitted into the presence chamber, and by most constant opposition to war, as was well known to her council. Many supposing miserly love of gold uppermost in mind and spirit, noted her bent of disposition, for behind every other passion and vanity moving her, the fear of being deposed rankled and urged her to a policy not yet understood. She found it the part of prudence to put the Princes—my brother and myself—out of the sight of the people. / The lack of truth in items our parent had recorded, would hold back from the world all true knowledge of this leaf of her history which doth concern other lives’ destiny.queen-elizabeth-1
