The Myths Surrounding Kateryn Parr

As a queen consort of England, Kateryn Parr's history is often overshadowed by the events that allegedly occurred between her husband and Lady Elizabeth. The Victorian historians didn't help her reputation either. Agnes Strickland's Lives of the Queens of England depicts Parr as having an 'unrivaled skill as a nurse'.  Today I am joined by Dr. Linda Porter to get a feel for the real Kateryn Parr. Dr. Porter responds to many of the myths about Parr, as well as interesting stories about her life.   -- Love the Tudors?

Courting Scandal: The Royal Household & Jane Boleyn

Jane Boleyn, sister-in-law of Queen Anne Boleyn and wife of George Boleyn, found herself embroiled in the dangerous politics of the Tudor court. Following the execution of George and Anne for treason in 1536, Jane managed to navigate the treacherous world of Tudor politics and maintain a position in each successive queen's household. However, her association with Katheryn Howard ultimately led to her downfall, and she was executed alongside the queen in 1542. Jane's story is a cautionary tale about the perils of power and ambition in the Tudor court. I had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. James Taffe about his new book, Courting Scandal: The Rise and Fall of Jane Boleyn, Lady Rochford. During our conversation, we delved into the intricacies of the Tudor royal household and the role that Jane played in it. I learned so much from our discussion, and it gave me a greater appreciation for the fascinating and complex world of Tudor history. Commercial FREE for patrons! Love the Tudors?

Tudor Folk Tales and Storytelling

In this #AtE, Steph is joined by author, historian, and storyteller extraordinaire - Dave Tonge. Dave shares some fun bits of history and even tells us a good tale. Trust me; it will blow your mind. Dave is the author of Tudor Folk Tales: In Tudor times, the ‘common sort’ were no different from us, laughing together, mocking each other, and sharing bawdy tales in tavern yards, marketplaces, and anywhere else that people came together. These stories were later collected in the cheap print of the period, and professional storyteller Dave Tonge has sought them out to assemble here. Within these pages hide smooth-talking tricksters, lusty knaves, wayward youths and stories of the eternal struggle to wear the breeches in the family, for a sometimes coarse but often comic telling of the everyday ups and downs in Tudor life.

If you are a fan of Elizabeth I then you'll appreciate this early 19th century (1818) sentiment. In this episode, we will jump forward a little in time to the year 1573.

At this point, Mary had already been Elizabeth's prisoner for years. They would number 19 in all, but at this point, it was still early on. So let's look at what the 19th-century observer had to say about Elizabeth's reaction to the Scottish queen and her favorite's trouble with Lady Sheffield.

William Caxton, the Printing Press, and Edward IV

We know that Edward IV had a rather large library of books. On this episode the wonderful Danie Burton joins us to discuss Edward IV's introduction to printed books, when the printing press was brought to England, and the man who brought it.

Tudor Tombs with Dr. Kirsten Claiden-Yardley

Tudor tombs are some of the longest lasting pieces of art in England. Whether these tombs were made of bronze, stone or even wood, the history remains centuries later. Effigies on top of the tomb are, in some cases, the only image we have of an historical figure. But sadly, during the dissolution of the monasteries, many of these magnificent tombs were damaged or destroyed.   Who designed them, who created them, and who paid them! What are some of the symbols we find on tombs? Why did neither Arthur Tudor or Henry Fitzroy have an effigy on top of their tombs?   Find Tudors Dynasty merchandise here: https://tudors-dynasty-podcast-merch.creator-spring.com/   Show Notes   Credits: Hosted by: Rebecca Larson Guest: Dr. Kirsten Claiden-Yardley Editing: Troy Larson (TroyLarsonCreative.com) Voice Over: David Black Music by: Ketsa, Alexander Nakarada, and Winnie the Moog via FilmMusic.io, used by EXTENDED license.   Resources: TudorsDynasty.com TudorsDynastyPodcast.com YouTube.com/TudorsDynasty Patreon.com/TudorsDynasty --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/rebecca-larson/message Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/rebecca-larson/support

Wars of the Roses, Katherine of Aragon and Bess of Hardwick

The Wars of the Roses, or the Cousins Wars, were one of the most deadly and tumultuous times in English history, resulting in the death of many nobles.

She is the author of Elizabeth I of England Through Valois Eyes: Power, Representation, and Diplomacy in the Reign of the Queen, 1558-1588 (Palgrave Macmillan, 2018) and has published several essays on Elizabeth I, French monarchs, and other European queens.   I had the privilege to speak with historian Dr Estelle Paranque on the subject, by the way, her favorite subject, and we discussed everything from her relationship with Robert Dudley, her similarities to Anne Boleyn, and yes, I found a way to discuss Thomas Seymour - because, let’s be honest, you can’t talk about Elizabeth’s early years without discussing Thomas.   For Show Notes, please go to https://tudorsdynastypodcast.com/show-notes/ -- Written by: Rebecca Larson Voiced by: Rebecca Larson & Dr Estelle Paranque Produced by: Rebecca Larson Imaging by: Troy Larson Music Credits:Music from https://filmmusic.io"Folk Round" by Kevin MacLeod (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/rebecca-larson/message Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/rebecca-larson/support

Tudor Medicine with Historian Seamus O'Caellaigh

Henry VIII lived for 55 years and had many health issues, especially toward the end of his reign; But that doesn’t mean he was a healthy man prior to that.  Henry’s own interest in remedies and prescriptions were quite magnificent as well. The health of the King was quite often public knowledge, and as you’ll discover in this episode, even his bowel movements were written about.  Royals, like today, were celebrities - to be associated with the King could bring one wealth and power, and we know that Henry VIII raised men who other monarchs may not have….because he was paranoid and had issues trusting people. It is easy for us, living in the 21st century, to take for granted modern medicine. My guest today is historian, Seamus O'Caellaigh. Seamus is the author of Pustules, Pestilence and Pain: Tudor Treatments and Ailments of Henry VIII. -- SHOW NOTES WITH UROSCOPY WHEEL   -- Written by: Rebecca Larson Voiced by: Rebecca Larson & Seamus O'Caellaigh Produced by: Rebecca Larson Imaging by: Troy Larson Music Credits:Music from https://filmmusic.io "Folk Round" by Kevin MacLeod (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/rebecca-larson/message Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/rebecca-larson/support

The Queen's Sisters: The Lives of the Sisters of Elizabeth Woodville with Sarah J Hodder

Excerpt from Amazon.com: "Whether Queen or commoner, the lives of women throughout history is a fascinating study. Elizabeth Woodville, 'The White Queen', managed to make the transition from commoner to Queen and became the epitome of medieval heroines – the commoner who married a King. When she became the wife of Edward IV her actions changed the life of her entire family. Vilified both by their contemporaries and by many historians since, the Woodville family were center stage during the reigns of Edward IV and Richard III. Elizabeth Woodville became the ancestress of future Kings and Queens. This book takes a fresh look at the lives of Elizabeth's sisters. Although information on them is scarce, by looking at the men they married, their families, the places they lived and the events that they lived through we can catch a glimpse of their lives. Each sister has their own story to tell and they may not have achieved the dizzying heights that their sister did, but they are all fascinating women." My guest today is the author of The Queen’s Sisters - The Lives of the Sisters of Elizabeth Woodville, Sarah J Hodder.   SHOW NOTES WITH FAMILY TREE AND IMAGES   -- Written by: Rebecca Larson Voiced by: Rebecca Larson & Sarah J Hodder Produced by: Rebecca Larson Imaging by: Troy Larson Music Credits:Music from https://filmmusic.io "Folk Round" by Kevin MacLeod (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/rebecca-larson/message Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/rebecca-larson/support

The Tower of London with Tara Ball

I must begin with two apologies. The first being that I may sound a bit different this week as I've been battling a cold. Secondly, there was a technical difficulty in my attempt to record this interview with Tara Ball, Warden at the Tower of London. Since I was unable to record an actual interview as I usually do, Tara was kind enough to take the questions I had prepared and record her answers for me. Regardless of the setback, I believe you will truly enjoy this episode as you do all the others. Tara does a marvelous job conveying the history of the Tower.

Adrienne has written two books, the first was Cor Rotto - a novel of Catherine Carey and the second was The Raven's Widow - a novel of Jane Boleyn.

Interview with Author Margaret George

Awhile ago, on Facebook, I asked for suggestions on guests to have on the show. One of my followers (I wish I could recall who it was to thank them) requested Margaret George. At the time I believed she was unattainable. One day I worked up the nerve to contact her and ask - what was the worst that would happen, right? I was pleasantly surprised when I heard that she was interested. This was many, many, many months ago. Today, I finally talked to her and thoroughly enjoyed our conversation. On today’s episode I welcome another one of my favorite authors, Margaret George. Margaret and I talk about her novels: The Autobiography of Henry VIII, Mary Queen of Scotland and the Isles and Elizabeth I. We discussed where her love of history originated as well as the history behind her books. We talk about the ridiculous 72,000 people Henry VIII executed, Katheryn Howard, the TV series The Spanish Princess and even Thomas Seymour (I didn't expect it). Be sure to stick around until the end to discover something you may not have known about this prolific author.

Adrienne has written two books, the first was Cor Rotto - a novel of Catherine Carey and the second was The Raven's Widow - a novel of Jane Boleyn.

Interview with Historian Dan Jones

 *Note: This episode may include curse words or statements that may offend you, but let's be honest, that's what makes this one the most fun! This episode is my final episode before I take a brief break from recording - don’t worry, I’ll be back in September. When I made the announcement that I would be switching to seasons in order to be able to spend more time with my family I  figured I needed my final episode to be a big one - one to hold you over for two months. I am pleased to announce that (in my opinion) I was able to do that by booking Dan Jones as a guest. Dan Jones is a historian and author who many of you may recognize without needing an introduction. For those who are not as familiar with Dan you may recognize him as the host of Secrets of Great British Castles on Netflix, or Britain’s Bloodiest Dynasty as well as a plethora of Tudor themed programs. Dan has eight books under his belt with his most recent one, Crusaders due out in the US his Fall. In this episode we really cover a WIDE variety of topics and I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed recording it. --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/rebecca-larson/message Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/rebecca-larson/support

William Shakespeare with Cassidy Cash

On today’s show I’m discussing a topic I feel I know very little about...William Shakespeare, but thankfully I’ll have a little help from an expert on the subject and we’ll have her answer some of your questions at the end as well. William Shakespeare is arguably the most well-known playwright of all time - to learn more about him today I have special guest, Cassidy Cash from That Shakespeare Life podcast on to educate me, and maybe you too, on the life of William Shakespeare. But, before we get started, here’s a little bit about Cassidy: Cassidy Cash is an award winning filmmaker, artist, and host of the podcast That Shakespeare Life. Cassidy believes that in order to take Shakespeare’s work from page to performance, understanding the history of the man who wrote them is essential. Her work focuses on exploring the real life and history of William Shakespeare and using art to help her fellow Shakespearean's learn something new about the bard. -- Written by: Rebecca Larson Voiced by: Rebecca Larson & Cassidy Cash Produced by: Rebecca Larson Imaging by: Troy Larson Music Credits:  Suonatore di Liuto Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/  --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/rebecca-larson/message Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/rebecca-larson/support

The Sisters Boleyn with Christine Morgan

With this podcast I share a variety of stories from the most well-known dynasty of them all; The Tudors. From simple stories about the people of the time to the drama that was the reign of Henry VIII and of course, religion and politics. This episode of the podcast is brought to you in part by The Falcon Nest - Handmade, history-themed jewelry.

So, May 19th is the 483rd anniversary of the execution of Anne Boleyn - I hate to call it an anniversary because that would indicate a celebration, and it was no real celebration for Anne. Except, without her execution I don't believe she would be as popular as she is today. Anne’s sister Mary has been mostly lost to history but part of her still carries on today - we’ll cover that more in a little bit. On today’s show we have special guest, Christine Morgan - Christine is a historian and web series creator from Charlotte, NC and hold an MA in European History and has been invited to present her research internationally at history conference in the US and in the UK. Her research covers the history of royal families, royal mistresses, religion, theatre, and propaganda.
