When I was growing up I was raised by distant relatives who were the royal horse breeders of those cute English ponies that everyone loves. And how that got me the best education in the world.Tiny pony
meI was born Ursula Stanley the daughter of Henry Stanley the 4th Earl of Derby and was the hereditary heir to the throne of England through matrilineal descent. However, I used at least 8 other names due to assassination and kidnapping attempts. I even exchanged names and borrowed the names of other women for up to years at a time to give myself a complete history. I was Anne Vavasor for at least 15 years during which time I wrote the plays, had an affair/marriage to Edward DeVere and served as Queen Elizabeth's personal secretary .

How I became the worlds first political cartoonist when I was Queen Elizabeth's personal secretary, actually the first Secretary of State. And quite a good proof that I am who I say I am (er..or that I was who I say I was).

Fire ships! and the Spanish Armada. The French women of Calais and what they did for the Englishmen who saved England and them from marauding Spanish soldiers. Also, the first IED (Improvised Explosive Device) boat bomb which killed over 1000 Spanish.

You can download and take this map with you of London at the time of Shakespeare. Full size at 1.7 meg or  half size at 600k. I located a map of Hertfordshire for this site which is where Hatfield House is located but it cost 1,000 pounds. It was strangely familiar and when I saw that William Kip made it I realized that I already paid William for it, in addition to doing some surveying work. I think it was about 20 pounds total. Then I shook my head and remembered what century I was in and that I no longer had the receipt. 

This map shows the countries of Europe in 1560 and this is one of Europe in 1600.

NOTE:-As an American I did not study English History in high school or college nor have I ever been to England. Until about 2005 I did not even know which queen Queen Elizabeth I was or anything about her. This whole site was written without editing, in a 'stream of consciousness' from my memories of a past life that I fondly recall. But they are memories and our memories are often wrong. Also the memories are very weak, probably like your memories of when you were 3 years old. So these memories are filled with lot's of errors and wishful thinking. Then there are quite a few errors and mistakes.

The bottom line it that it is very hard to recall information from 400 years ago.

Scroll up for all about me. Scroll down for all about the plays:

I quickly answer a question that is very important. Why I didn't take credit for the plays that are attributed to William Shakespeare.

What role did the man named William Shakespeare have to do with the plays and who is this really a picture of?Cardinal Richleiu

Solid proof for the first time that the Bard was a woman.

How the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet was an actual allegory of the real tragedy of Mary Queen of Scots and the Earl of Bothwell. Thirty major parallels listed side by side. Don't miss it for the world.

The perv Falstaff exposed for the animal he really was,

 A Midsummer Night's Dream, how and why Queen Elizabeth came up with Puck's name and unmasking European child molesting monarchs. And continuing to today's leaders (which is still very much needed).

'The Tempest'. (Best for fans of history AND the Bard.) It was the stage version of the defeat of the Spanish Armada. It's real purpose was to prevent another invasion by humiliating the Spanish and it worked. 

How being questioned by Queen Elizabeth ended with her leveraging herself into the position of co-writing the play.

The Merry Wives of Windsor were a bunch of dogs that stood up on their hind legs and talked!

Horse sense but the play itself was based on  England saving the world with a super horse.

Brief notes on Richard III.

The secret about the 'boys' who played the women's parts in the plays.

Secrets about the plays and specifically why they are so popular.

Proof. So I can 'talk the talk' but can I 'walk the walk' (write like the bard). It's one thing to say I was the bard but it is entirely another thing to be able to write like him (or her). You be the judge.
   Here.. Even better, read this scene from a screenplay which I am writing.

How to eliminate type casting (For professional actors.)
