Today in 1541 Henry VIII was on his famous Progress to the North, and entered the city of York where the most important people in the city begged forgiveness for the Pilgrimage of Grace, which had happened half a decade earlier. His wife, Katherine Howard, was there as well, receiving a gold cup full of coins from those same city officials.
