Was Queen Elizabeth Actually a Man? Feat. Our Fake History – Showcase, British History

 

What if Queen Elizabeth had been a man? We dive into this bizarre idea in today’s showcase episode, courtesy of Sebastian Major of Our Fake History.

Our Fake History is a podcast that explores myths people think are history and history that might be hidden in myths. At the heart of today’s episode is  gender: the idea that maybe Queen Elizabeth was really a man.

Now, is that preposterous? Yeah, probably. Deliciously preposterous. But what’s great about it is what it teaches us along the way: we’ll learn about the struggles Elizabeth faced as a woman, the sexism of her age and the centuries after when this theory was being bandied about.
