Elizabeth, 1558.
Henry VII. was the son of Edmund, Earl of Richmond, and

and thus united the houses of York and Lancaster.

"His children were Arthur, Prince of Wales ; Henry, after-
wards Henry VIII.; Margaret, who married James IV. of
Scotland ; and Mary, who married Louis XII. of France.

Henry's title to the crown was weak, and for many years he was occupied in defending it against rivals, of whom Lambert Simnel and Perkin Warbeck were the chief.

1. Lainbert Simne.—Lambert was a poor baker's boy, but was persuaded by a priest, named Simon, to pretend that he was the Earl of Warwick, whom Henry had imprisoned in the Tower, because his title to the throne was stronger than his own. Simnel was acknowledged king of Ireland, but, on landing in England, Henry defeated him at Stoke, Nottinghamshire, and, taking him prisoner, made him a servant in his kitchen. LEARN AND WRITE

GEOGRAPHY.

It is united to Africa by the Isthmus of Suez, through which, however, a canal has just been completed for the passage of ships into the Red Sea, and thence into the Indian Ocean; and is separated from America by Behring's Straits, which are about 36 miles across.
