Transcript

  1. 1. Beheaded on 29 October 1618 Who Was Sir Walter Raleigh?
  2. 2. In 1580, Raleigh was one of the leaders of a party that beheaded over 600 Spanish and Italian soldiers who were taken prisoner at the Siege of Smerwick. Below is a monument to the dead.
  3. 3. Early in his life he had a vision from what he believed was an angel from God who told him that he would not die in battle. A man with that kind of belief can accomplish many things.
  4. 4. As far as the infamous laying down of the cloak for Queen Elizabeth I? The first mention of this came 80 years after his death, so . . . However, he was one of her favorites at court.
  5. 5. In 1584, he received a charter from Queen Elizabeth I to explore and rule any "remote, heathen and barbarous lands, countries, and territories, not actually possessed of any Christian Prince, or inhabited by Christian People.” He would get 1/5th of all the gold and silver that might be mined there.
  6. 6. He ruled an estate in Ireland for many years, before exploring the New World at the behest of Queen Elizabeth. He himself never landed in North America, although he sent an expedition to Roanoke, which would become known as the Lost Colony.
  7. 7. In 1591 he secretly married one of the Queen’s ladies-in- waiting, Elizabeth Throckmorton. They were briefly imprisoned in the tower by an outraged Queen.
  8. 8. Queen Elizabeth I died on 23 March 1603. Raleigh was arrested for treason for his part in the plot against the successor, James I, on 19 July 1603. He was convicted and thrown in the Tower. He remained there until 1616.
  9. 9. He wrote “The History of the World” about ancient Greece and Rome while a prisoner.
  10. 10. He was briefly let out in 1617 to search for El Dorado, the famed city of gold in South America. He didn’t find it. Returning to England, Raleigh was once more arrested, this time for attacking the Spanish against orders.
  11. 11. On 29 October 1618, he was taken to the Old Palace Yard in London to be executed. Seeing the axe, he remarked: “This is a sharp medicine, but is a physician for all diseases and miseries.”
  12. 12. But. What if he didn’t die under the axe? How would history change?
  13. 13. Our timeline is being attacked. If the Shadow can change six events in the past, on the same day in different years, it will cause a Time Tsunami and out timeline will be wiped out. The only thing standing between us and obliteration is: the Time Patrol
  14. 14. London. 29 October 1618. Time Patrol Agent Mac is there, amongst a group of conspirators who want to free Raleigh and escape to Spain, so Raleigh can reveal English defenses to the Spanish Crown. And the plan looks like it will work. How does Mac get Raleigh to accept his fate?
