Hi everyone!

I was just curious as to what everyone thought were the “main Tudor themes” that run through books, both nonfic and historical fiction, etc. Of course there are courtly love and the image of the “knight in shining armor,” the idea that a woman existed in order to marry and have children, scheming and plots, especially aimed at the throne, etc. But what else? What made the Tudor contemporaries tick?
I am writing a novel about the Tudor nobility and desire it to be as authentic as possible, but moreover, I want it to be traditional in the way that it explores stereotypes of the Tudor era and picks them apart.

Thank you all SO much!!!
