Magic lantern slide circa 1900.Victorian/Edwardian.Social History.Lambert Simnel (c. 1477 - c. 1525) was a pretender to the throne of England. His claim to be the Earl of Warwick in 1487 threatened the newly established reign of King Henry VII (reigned 1485-1509). Simnel became the figurehead of a Yorkist rebellion organised by John de la Pole, Earl of Lincoln. The rebellion was crushed in 1487. Simnel was pardoned and was thereafter employed by the Royal household as a scullion, and, later, as a falconer.(Photo by: Universal History Archive/Universal Images Group via Getty Images)
