      Just a quick note.

      I don't have the documentation in front of me. But.............

      Roger Ascham was Princess Elizabeth's tutor from 1548 to 1550.

      Elizabeth is known to have shot the longbow in her youth and the
      crossbow during her reign. At one point she was the "King" of a crossbow
      society based in London. This rank is achieved by winning a crossbow
      tournament.
