We recorded this 5th Tudor History Challenge to celebrate reaching 30,000 subscribers to my YouTube Channel – it’s lovely that that many people enjoy me talking Tudor! It was […]
I just wanted to share this bit of good news with you! Firstly, apologies for the sound of the sea breeze, which just wouldn’t let up! I wanted to do something a bit more informal and have a change of scenery for this video so I hope you can forgive me. It wasn’t quite as […]
In this latest instalment of my “Questions about Anne Boleyn” series, I look at Philippa Gregory’s best-selling novel, “The Other Boleyn Girl”, which was also turned into a movie and adapted for television. “The Other Boleyn Girl” has brought Anne Boleyn and Mary Boleyn’s stories to life for many people, and provoked an interest in […]
