A poet by trade, he invented the 1st flushable bathroom. His wit occasionally got him into problems using the royal courtroom, such as whenever a translated racy Italian poem strike a touch too close to house for the Queen. His invention triggered his name to become sort of euphemism for bathroom. He wedded Mary Rogers, the granddaughter of Sir Edward Rogers. His mom Isabella Markham was a servant to Queen Elizabeth I and worked well in her royal privy chamber. The Queen received his 1st flushable toilet.
