Fun Fact: Queen Elizabeth Rotten Teeth

Queen Elizabeth tudor redhead

Sugar wasn’t a common thing in the early Tudor days, but by the time of Queen Elizabeth’s reign, it was gaining popularity after being imported from across the world. She apparently liked it so much, that pretty much most, if not all of her teeth grew black and rotten by the end of her lifetime.
