The Tower of London with Tara Ball

The Tower of London with Tara Ball

November 24, 2019

I must begin with two apologies. The first being that I may sound a bit different this week as I've been battling a cold. Secondly, there was a technical difficulty in my attempt to record this interview with Tara Ball, Warden at the Tower of London. Since I was unable to record an actual interview as I usually do, Tara was kind enough to take the questions I had prepared and record her answers for me. Regardless of the setback, I believe you will truly enjoy this episode as you do all the others. Tara does a marvelous job conveying the history of the Tower.

A Brief History: Margaret Douglas with Rosie Parent

November 17, 2019

A Brief History is a supplement episode of the Tudors Dynasty Podcast. On this episode I welcome a fellow podcaster, Rosie Parent, host of the History, Eh? podcast. I love that name so much!

Today, Rosie’s subject  is Margaret Douglas. You might know Margaret best as the daughter of Henry VIII’s eldest sister, or maybe as the mother of Lord Darnley...but as usual,  I’m going to let someone who has done more research on her life do the talking...and with that I’d like to welcome Rosie to the show….

Adrienne has written two books, the first was Cor Rotto - a novel of Catherine Carey and the second was The Raven's Widow - a novel of Jane Boleyn. Adrienne's research has placed her at the top of people who know the most about Catherine Carey and that is why I asked her to be a guest host today.

Interview with Author Margaret George

Interview with Author Margaret George

October 26, 2019

Awhile ago, on Facebook, I asked for suggestions on guests to have on the show. One of my followers (I wish I could recall who it was to thank them) requested Margaret George. At the time I believed she was unattainable. One day I worked up the nerve to contact her and ask - what was the worst that would happen, right? I was pleasantly surprised when I heard that she was interested. This was many, many, many months ago. Today, I finally talked to her and thoroughly enjoyed our conversation.

On today’s episode I welcome another one of my favorite authors, Margaret George. Margaret and I talk about her novels: The Autobiography of Henry VIII, Mary Queen of Scotland and the Isles and Elizabeth I. We discussed where her love of history originated as well as the history behind her books. We talk about the ridiculous 72,000 people Henry VIII executed, Katheryn Howard, the TV series The Spanish Princess and even Thomas Seymour (I didn't expect it). Be sure to stick around until the end to discover something you may not have known about this prolific author.

Order her books directly from her website with links to print and ebook version to by on any platform:  https://margaretgeorge.com/books/

Interview with Historian Dan Jones

Interview with Historian Dan Jones

June 23, 2019

 *Note: This episode may include curse words or statements that may offend you, but let's be honest, that's what makes this one the most fun!

This episode is my final episode before I take a brief break from recording - don’t worry, I’ll be back in September. When I made the announcement that I would be switching to seasons in order to be able to spend more time with my family I  figured I needed my final episode to be a big one - one to hold you over for two months. I am pleased to announce that (in my opinion) I was able to do that by booking Dan Jones as a guest.

Dan Jones is a historian and author who many of you may recognize without needing an introduction. For those who are not as familiar with Dan you may recognize him as the host of Secrets of Great British Castles on Netflix, or Britain’s Bloodiest Dynasty as well as a plethora of Tudor themed programs. Dan has eight books under his belt with his most recent one, Crusaders due out in the US his Fall.

In this episode we really cover a WIDE variety of topics and I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed recording it.

William Shakespeare with Cassidy Cash

William Shakespeare with Cassidy Cash

June 1, 2019

On today’s show I’m discussing a topic I feel I know very little about...William Shakespeare, but thankfully I’ll have a little help from an expert on the subject and we’ll have her answer some of your questions at the end as well.

William Shakespeare is arguably the most well-known playwright of all time - to learn more about him today I have special guest, Cassidy Cash from That Shakespeare Life podcast on to educate me, and maybe you too, on the life of William Shakespeare.

But, before we get started, here’s a little bit about Cassidy:

Cassidy Cash is an award winning filmmaker, artist, and host of the podcast That Shakespeare Life. Cassidy believes that in order to take Shakespeare’s work from page to performance, understanding the history of the man who wrote them is essential. Her work focuses on exploring the real life and history of William Shakespeare and using art to help her fellow Shakespearean's learn something new about the bard.

The Sisters Boleyn with Christine Morgan

The Sisters Boleyn with Christine Morgan

May 18, 2019

With this podcast I share a variety of stories from the most well-known dynasty of them all; The Tudors. From simple stories about the people of the time to the drama that was the reign of Henry VIII and of course, religion and politics.

This episode of the podcast is brought to you in part by The Falcon Nest - Handmade, history-themed jewelry. The Falcon Nest specializes in gorgeous replicas of the famous Anne Boleyn “B” necklace.  See more at - the-falcon-nest.com  - and be sure to use promo code TUDORSDYNASTY to receive 15% off!

So, May 19th is the 483rd anniversary of the execution of Anne Boleyn - I hate to call it an anniversary because that would indicate a celebration, and it was no real celebration for Anne. Except, without her execution I don't believe she would be as popular as she is today. Anne’s sister Mary has been mostly lost to history but part of her still carries on today - we’ll cover that more in a little bit.

On today’s show we have special guest, Christine Morgan - Christine is a historian and web series creator from Charlotte, NC and hold an MA in European History and has been invited to present her research internationally at history conference in the US and in the UK.

Her research covers the history of royal families, royal mistresses, religion, theatre, and propaganda. Christine’s web series called “Untitled History Project” which she writes, researches and hosts, has garnered support in her community and has been used as teaching material in high schools and universities in the US.

Special Episode - Movie Review: Young Bess (1953)

Special Episode - Movie Review: Young Bess (1953)

April 11, 2019

In this special episode I welcome Sari Graham back to the show. You might recognize Sari's name from my website TudorsDynasty.com or you might recognize her voice from a previous episode about the Wars of the Roses. 

Sari and I discuss the 1953 film, Young Bess. If you've never watched the movie it should be fun to hear what we thought of it - IF you have seen it I'd love to hear your feedback and see if you felt the same way the two of us did watching it.

i hope you enjoy this more relaxed style of show, because it was a lot of fun to put together.

Thomas, the diplomat and the Siege of Pest

Thomas, the diplomat and the Siege of Pest

April 10, 2019
 
Hey! Welcome to the show! This will be the first show where I debut my new equipment AND new imaging from the amazingly talented, Troy Larson. 

Thomas, the diplomat and the Siege of Pest is a new concept for me. I don't often speak of anything diplomatic or military, because it used to bore me. I was more interested in the relationships and the drama. Little did I know that the research for this podcast would change my mind all together. That by understanding an important piece of Thomas Seymour's history I understand him all the more. The battles, sieges and wars were a large part of Tudor lives and to neglect them is to do an injustice. So, here I go...stepping outside the box and producing a new sounding podcast about a subject I knew little of before choosing it as a topic.

If, as recommended in the podcast, you'd like to follow along on Google Maps (or wherever you prefer), here are a list of cities mentioned:

Enjoy this podcast and hope to see you next time!  -Rebecca

Plantagenets & the Wars of the Roses

Plantagenets & the Wars of the Roses

April 9, 2019

This podcast is a bit unconventional for me. I've decided that talking about the Tudors, or any royal history, for that matter is more fun when you have someone to do it with. Sari Graham and I have become friends through social media and we share an interest in all things Tudor. I am honored to have her as a guest on the show today so she can teach me, and maybe you as well, a bit about the Wars of the Roses.

Why the Tudors?

Why the Tudors?

April 9, 2019

I was having a difficult time coming up with a topic for this week's podcast. I reached out to my followers on Facebook and a couple of them mentioned that they would be interested in finding out what got me interested in The Tudor dynasty in the first place. I thought it was a fantastic idea and so I ran with it.

This episode begins talking about Henry VII and the Battle of Bosworth as well as Elizabeth of York and leads up to the birth of Prince Arthur.

I discuss my genealogy, my DNA, favorite programs and so much more. If you really want to get a feel for who I am and what drives me then you'll love this episode.

*side note - I discovered later that I am NOT related to the person I mentioned. It was a bad hint. (You'll know what this means after you listen)

As always, I say thank you to all my patrons and to those of you who have supported over the years. Thanks again!

A very special thank you to Nathen Amin for allowing me to share the quote from his social media account.

Most Influential Women: Margaret Beaufort

Most Influential Women: Margaret Beaufort

April 9, 2019

 

On my Facebook page called, Tudors Dynasty, I asked my followers who they believed to be the most influential women of the Tudor era. It is because of this poll that I decided to turn this into a series of episodes about some amazing Tudor women. 

With this episode I focused on Margaret Beaufort, someone that I have not written much about in the past so it was fun to learn more about her.

In the last episode, Part One of Life in Tudor England I covered, Tudor Women, Marriage, Childbirth, Fairs & Markets, Entertainment, Average Life and Food. If you missed out on that one it’s okay because each of these Tudor Life episodes can stand alone - so you can really listen to them in any order.

Understanding the Man: Henry VIII - Part Two

Understanding the Man: Henry VIII - Part Two

April 7, 2019
 
This is the second and last part on my "Understanding the Man" series on King Henry VIII.

As many of you may already know, King Henry VIII is my favorite monarch of the Tudor dynasty. If it wasn’t for his reign I do not believe the Tudors would be as popular as they are today. In this episode I continue on my journey to explain the Henry I have learned to love...and hate.

In this series on Henry VIII I want to take a different look at the king who executed two of his six wives. My mission is to make those of you who look at him as a tyrant to see what made him into the man he became later into his reign.

Most Fearless Women in Tudor England

Most Fearless Women in Tudor England

Episode: Most Fearless Women in Tudor England
 
I recently finished reading a couple of books about Mary Tudor, sister of King Henry VIII and Queen of France; it got me thinking about how fearless some of these women in the Tudor period really were. By today’s standards they would not be considered as brave (depending on what part of the world you live in of course), but in 16th century England the things these women did may have been considered reckless and disobedient by their male counterparts.

Episode: Edward VI’s Regency Council

Episode: Edward VI’s Regency Council

March 24, 2019
Episode: Edward VI's Regency Council
 
After producing my series on Lady Jane Grey I thought I should step back a bit and look at the beginning of Edward VI's reign. As many of you already know I have an obsession with Thomas Seymour - it is at the time of Edward accession to the throne that things began to sour for Thomas Seymour...where he may have foresaw great favor and wealth, realty brought him much less. Thomas Seymour was not even trusted by King Henry VIII to be on the regency council of his own nephew.

This episode will focus on the events that occurred prior to King Henry VIII's death and will end with each of the sixteen men on the council and a bit about them.

I would also like to take a minute to apologize for the slaughtering of English place names, surnames and events -- I didn't realize until after the fact that I may have done a bit more research on how to pronounce a few things - my apologies, in advance.

The life of Lady Jane Grey has been told many times. Most of the stories mention an abusive home where Jane felt trapped. But they do not often make you feel like you are getting a glimpse at the real Jane. 

My series on Jane will hopefully open your eyes to interesting bits you did not know.

There were many reasons why I wanted to do a series on Lady Jane Grey. 

1. February is the month she was executed

2. I have read 'Crown of Blood' by Nicola Tallis

3. I just finished 'Three Sisters Who Would Be Queen' by Leanda De Lisle

4. BBC recently had a series on her as well, so Jane is hot-topic this month.

Here is the last episode in the series on Elizabeth, Queen of England.  As this journey to discover the real Elizabeth Tudor, Queen of England comes to an end I have decided to focus on two important women of the era.

They were both female, both royal by birth and both Queens in their own right, but being cousins is what caused the most havoc in their lives of these two women. I am of course speaking of Elizabeth Tudor and Mary Stuart.
