Magic Shake-Ball

Question: Do I worry too much?

Shake-Ball's Answer:

"I am solicited, not by a few,
And those of true condition, that your subjects
Are in great grievance."

--Queen Katherine (Henry VIII 1.2.20-22)


The queen's telling her husband, King Henry VIII, that his subjects are pissed about their taxes. The king says it's not his fault.

Taxes. Did we do something wrong on the forms? Or maybe this is about being really unpopular, like Henry is at this moment. Am I really unpopular?

Here's another thought. Henry VIII leaves the Catholic church so that he can divorce Katherine. So, maybe someone in our family is planning on converting? Or divorcing me???

Nah, must be the taxes.
