Compare 1577 edition: 1 2 But such was hir chance by hir lightnesse and inconstancie, that she wan the displeasure of manie men, and for that cause liued after in the abbeie of Bermondseie beside Southwarke a wretched and a miserable life, where not manie yeares after she de|ceassed, and is buried with hir husband at Windsore. Though fortune thus ruleth manie things at hir ple|sure, yet one worke that this quéene accomplished cannot be forgotten: for in the life time of hir hus|band king Edward the fourth, she founded and erec|ted a notable colledge in the vniuersitie of Cam|bridge,Quéenes col|ledge in Cam|bridge foun|ded by the la|die Elizabeth king Edward the fourth his wife. for the finding of scholers and students of the same vniuersitie, and endowed it with sufficient pos|sessions for the long maintenance of the same, which at this daie is called the Quéenes colledge.

Compare 1577 edition: 1 2 When all things in this counsell were sagelie con|cluded and agréed to the kings mind, he returned to London; giuing in commandement, that the next sundaie insuing, Edward the yoong earle of War|wike EEBO page image 766 should be brought from the Tower through the most publike streets in all London,Edward the right earle of Warwike shewed open|lie in proces|sion. to the cathedrall church of saint Paule, where he went openlie in pro|cession, that euerie man might sée him, hauing com|munication with manie noble men, and with them especiallie that were suspected to be partakers of the late begun conspiracie; that they might perceiue how the Irishmen vpon a vaine shadowe mooued warre against the king and his realme. But this me|dicine little auailed euill disposed persons. For the earle of Lincolne sonne to Iohn de la Poole duke of Suffolke, and Elizabeth sister to king Edward the fourth, thought it not méet to neglect and omit so rea|die an occasion of new trouble.

Compare 1577 edition: 1 2 Wherefore they determined to vphold the enter|prise of the Irishmen, and other complices of this conspiracie: so that consulting with sir Thomas Broughton, and certeine other of his most trustie freends,An ill matter followed to the proofe. he purposed to saile into Flanders to his aunt the ladie Margaret duchesse of Burgognie, trusting by hir helpe to make a puissant armie, and to ioine with the companions of the new raised sedi|tion. Therefore after the dissolution of the parlement which then was holden, he fled secretlie into Flan|ders vnto the said ladie Margaret; where Francis lord Louell landed certeine daies before. Héere after long consultation had how to proceed in their busi|nesse, it was agreed, that the earle of Lincolne, and the lord Louell should go into Ireland; and there to attend vpon the duchesse hir counterfeit nephue, and to honor him as a king, and with the power of the I|rishmen to bring him into England.
