Posted By Claire on August 29, 2016
The September 2016 edition of Tudor Life Magazine, the monthly magazine of our sister site The Tudor Society, is now available.
September’s theme is Wales, Scotland and Ireland and in describing this month’s jam-packed, Tudor-focused 78-page edition, editor Gareth Russell writes:
“This edition of “Tudor Life” magazine seeks to explore something of the other British aspects of the 16th-century story – the Irish, Scottish, and Welsh experience. I am pleased to include an excerpt from my book “A History of the English Monarchy”, discussing Henry VII’s career and what he did for Wales; while Nathen Amin gives his expert opinion on whether the Tudors really did turn their backs on their Welsh ancestry; Timothy Venning wonders what might have happened if Henry VIII’s Scottish or European relatives came to power earlier, while Dominic Pearce, biographer of one of the Stuart monarchy’s most gutsy and tenacious queens consort, Henrietta-Maria of France, discusses Scotland and Ireland. Along with our regular contributors, this issue shines a light on the ever -fascinating history of sixteenth-century Britain.”
With article from our regular contributors on Tudor music, art, food, people and places, it really is a wonderful magazine.
