Why did Sir Thomas Wyatt rebel?
June 12, 2008 9:15PM
Sir Thomas Wyatt the poet did not rebel. His son, Thomas the younger, did. He was opposed to Mary's marriage to Philip of Spain. Originally, several influential lords were with him, but they left him out to dry. He was beheaded, leaving several children. One of his descendents was the Governor of Virginia: Sir Francis Wyatt.
