In this podcast, I explore the story of Margaret Tudor, Queen of Scotland, and include excerpts from my audiobook 'Mary - Tudor Princess'. She was the daughter of King Henry VII and the older sister of King Henry VIII.
What changed Henry VIII from a renaissance prince into the 'tyrant' we know in his later rule? In this podcast I take a look at the evidence for the possible causes, as well as talk about some of the less well known facts about King Henry.
Arthur was heir to the throne of England and the embodiment of the union between Lancaster and York. His wedding to the young and beautiful Catherine of Aragon was one of the great events of Henry's reign. Then, at the age of fifteen, Arthur's sudden death changed history.
Handsome, charismatic and a champion jouster, Charles Brandon is a Tudor Knight. A favourite of King Henry VIII, Brandon has a secret. He has fallen in love with Henry’s sister, Mary Tudor, the beautiful widowed Queen of France, and risks everything to marry her without the King’s consent.
When Henry VIII married Catherine, she was an auburn-haired beauty in her twenties with a passion she had inherited from her parents, Isabella of Castile and Ferdinand of Aragon, the joint-rulers of Spain. This daughter of conquistadors showed the same steel and King Henry was to learn, to his cost, that he had not met a tougher opponent when he tried to divorce her.
