Tudors Dynasty Podcast
William Caxton, the Printing Press, and Edward IV

William Caxton, the Printing Press, and Edward IV

December 6, 2021

We know that Edward IV had a rather large library of books. On this episode the wonderful Danie Burton joins us to discuss Edward IV's introduction to printed books, when the printing press was brought to England, and the man who brought it.

Imagine a world where books had to be written by hand. While it guaranteed beautiful craftmanship it was not accessible to all. The printing press introduced a world to medieval England that many could not have imagined.

Tudor Tombs with Dr. Kirsten Claiden-Yardley

Tudor Tombs with Dr. Kirsten Claiden-Yardley

October 25, 2021
Tudor tombs are some of the longest lasting pieces of art in England. Whether these tombs were made of bronze, stone or even wood, the history remains centuries later. Effigies on top of the tomb are, in some cases, the only image we have of an historical figure. But sadly, during the dissolution of the monasteries, many of these magnificent tombs were damaged or destroyed.
 
Who designed them, who created them, and who paid them! What are some of the symbols we find on tombs? Why did neither Arthur Tudor or Henry Fitzroy have an effigy on top of their tombs?

Frances Howard with Elizabeth Fremantle

Frances Howard with Elizabeth Fremantle

August 30, 2021

Welcome to Episode 122! This is the last of the off-season episodes and I’d like to thank Steph Stohrer for stepping up and helping to provide you with content for the last couple of months. The new season is going to be a bit different than what you’re used to, but you’ll still be getting all the same amazing content.

On this episode, Steph chats with critically acclaimed author, Elizabeth Fremantle. Elizabeth has published four Tudor and Elizabethan set novels which many you are likely familiar with...and, as we’ll learn today she has an announcement to make (which many of you may already know) regarding one of her books! Today, Elizabeth is here to discuss the ever scandalous Frances Howard. You’ll want to stick around to hear about this wonderfully noteworthy worthy figure in history that we seldom hear about.

Queen Consorts, the Grey Sisters and Lady Cromwell

Queen Consorts, the Grey Sisters and Lady Cromwell

November 30, 2020
When we began planning episode 103, I don't think we imagined that it would be a themed episode. This episode we were fortunate enough to have both Elizabeth Norton and Leanda de Lisle on to talk about women, or women near the throne. Elizabeth chats with me about queen consorts (oh the fun!), and Leanda is asked YOUR submitted questions on the Grey sisters. Then I teach you a bit about Elizabeth Seymour (sister to Queen Jane) in A Brief History.
 
And, as a treat to all listeners, everyone gets access to Elizabeth Norton's full answers in "IF I Made You Choose" this episode! As patrons you will now (after this episode) receive early access to the answers prior to the public.

Wars of the Roses, Katherine of Aragon and Bess of Hardwick

Wars of the Roses, Katherine of Aragon and Bess of Hardwick

November 16, 2020
The Wars of the Roses, or the Cousins Wars, were one of the most deadly and tumultuous times in English history, resulting in the death of many nobles. Today, Rachael Dickzen and I talk about some of the key players of the time: Henry VI, Edward IV, the Kingmaker, and Richard, Duke of York. We also discuss the women of the Wars of the Roses, including Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort and Margaret of Anjou. We take a look at the family tree of Edward III and how that affected history, and we also touch base on sanctuary and quick executions.
 
Then historian and author Heather Darsie joins us again for Ask the Expert. Today’s topic is Katherine of Aragon (and her family), and we ask Heather the questions you submitted on social media. You’re really going to enjoy this one as Heather once again shatters our idea of what actually happened between the sheets with Katherine and Arthur Tudor.
Lastly, Steph joins us again to share with you the story of the amazing Bess of Hardwick - you won’t want to miss this episode….listen in segments if you need to, but be sure to listen to it all.

Welcome to episode 101! This episode we have Dr Kirsten Claiden-Yardley here to chat about the Howard family, but in particular the 2nd Duke of Norfolk. Then, team member Steph asks me about the Seymour family in this installment of Ask the Expert. That's where I answer your social media supplied questions about my favorite family. Lastly, Steph steps in and also handles A Brief History this episode - you won't even notice it's not me.
A special thanks to Steph, by the way...this episode would not have been possible without her help getting it here. Started a new job two weeks ago and have little time to do podcast stuff while I'm still training. Steph has been a life saver, so please give her some love!

NEW SEASON: Alison Weir, Matthew Lewis and a Madwoman

September 7, 2020
Welcome to the new season!!
 
I wanted to start of the new season with a bang, and so I was able to line up best-selling author and historian Alison Weir. Alison stops by to chat about Katheryn Howard, the Tudors....and of course we talk about Thomas Seymour.
 
The second segment of the show is called 'Ask the Expert'. This segment is for my listeners to be able to submit their questions to a historian on a specific subject. This episode my expert is historian/author Matthew Lewis and he answers your Richard III (and princes in the Tower) questions.
 
Lastly, we wrap up the episode with a 'Brief History' - just like the old days, I tell you a story about a specific person who lived between 1485 and 1603...this time it's a fascinating story about a madwoman who claimed to be the daughter of.....(you'll have to listen).
