1536 – The Pilgrimage of Grace rebellion began
The Pilgrimage of Grace was a popular rising in Yorkshire in the autumn of 1536 in protest against Henry VIII's break with the Roman Catholic Church, the Dissolution of the Monasteries and the policies of the King's chief minister, Thomas Cromwell, as well as other specific political, social and economic grievances. It has been termed "the most serious of all Tudor rebellions".Although sometimes used with reference to other risings in northern England at the time, including the Lincolnshire rising which occurred twelve days before the actual Pilgrimage of Grace, the term Pilgrimage of Grace technically refers only to the uprising in Yorkshire.
1586 – Mary, Queen of Scots, goes on trial for conspiracy against Elizabeth I of England.
Mary Stuart was put on trial for treason under the Act for the Queen's Safety before a court of 36 noblemen, including Cecil, Shrewsbury, and Walsingham.Spirited in her defence, Mary denied the charges. She told her triers, "Look to your consciences and remember that the theatre of the whole world is wider than the kingdom of England". She drew attention to the facts that she was denied the opportunity to review the evidence, that her papers had been removed from her, that she was denied access to legal counsel and that as a foreign anointed queen she had never been an English subject and thus could not be convicted of treason
