BBC History Magazine have asked me to highlight the fact that the April issue of BBC History Magazine is a Tudor special, celebrating the BBC’s upcoming season of programmes about England’s most fascinating royal dynasty.
On sale in the UK on 28 March, this special edition includes three features on the Tudor family and their era:
- The trial of Anne Boleyn – Guilty as charged, or an innocent woman? Suzannah Lipscomb examines theories as to why Henry VIII sent Anne Boleyn to the scaffold in 1536.
- The Spanish Armada – Elizabeth I’s England was ill-prepared for the attempted Spanish invasion of 1588, says Robert Hutchinson.
- The Tudor breakfast revolution – Ian Mortimer discovers that breakfast hasn’t always been regarded as the most important meal of the day.
As you can see, Anne’s on the cover too!
