Tudor Medicine with Historian Seamus O’Caellaigh

Tudor Medicine with Historian Seamus O’Caellaigh

April 5, 2020

Henry VIII lived for 55 years and had many health issues, especially toward the end of his reign; But that doesn’t mean he was a healthy man prior to that. 

Henry’s own interest in remedies and prescriptions were quite magnificent as well.

The health of the King was quite often public knowledge, and as you’ll discover in this episode, even his bowel movements were written about. 

Royals, like today, were celebrities - to be associated with the King could bring one wealth and power, and we know that Henry VIII raised men who other monarchs may not have….because he was paranoid and had issues trusting people.

It is easy for us, living in the 21st century, to take for granted modern medicine.

My guest today is historian, Seamus O'Caellaigh. Seamus is the author of Pustules, Pestilence and Pain: Tudor Treatments and Ailments of Henry VIII.

The Queen’s Sisters: The Lives of the Sisters of Elizabeth Woodville with Sarah J Hodder

The Queen’s Sisters: The Lives of the Sisters of Elizabeth Woodville with Sarah J Hodder

March 21, 2020
Excerpt from Amazon.com:
"Whether Queen or commoner, the lives of women throughout history is a fascinating study.
Elizabeth Woodville, 'The White Queen', managed to make the transition from commoner to Queen and became the epitome of medieval heroines – the commoner who married a King.
When she became the wife of Edward IV her actions changed the life of her entire family. Vilified both by their contemporaries and by many historians since, the Woodville family were center stage during the reigns of Edward IV and Richard III.
Elizabeth Woodville became the ancestress of future Kings and Queens.
This book takes a fresh look at the lives of Elizabeth's sisters. Although information on them is scarce, by looking at the men they married, their families, the places they lived and the events that they lived through we can catch a glimpse of their lives. Each sister has their own story to tell and they may not have achieved the dizzying heights that their sister did, but they are all fascinating women."
My guest today is the author of The Queen’s Sisters - The Lives of the Sisters of Elizabeth Woodville, Sarah J Hodder.

Dr. Wendy J. Dunn on Katherine of Aragon

Dr. Wendy J. Dunn on Katherine of Aragon

February 2, 2020

On this episode I speak with Australian author and historian, Dr. Wendy J. Dunn. Wendy is the author of three absolutely amazing Tudor novels. We talk about the central characters in each: Anne Boleyn, Thomas Wyatt, Catherine Carey and Katherine of Aragon.

Wendy also discusses what the writing process was like for her, as well as how she handled rejection. 

We discuss Katherine of Aragon's early years before arriving in England as her time with Arthur. Somehow I got her to answer the 'did they or didn't they question'.

January 2, 2020
For years you have been asking me to do a podcast about Thomas Cromwell. Even though I had read quite a bit about his life, I had never felt like I could do his story the justice it deserved. Today is the day.
 
My guest today is author Caroline Angus. Caroline is one of the leading authorities on Thomas Cromwell. Her research on him has been so extensive that she has published a trilogy called The Queenmaker Series. Today, Caroline will help us better understand Thomas Cromwell.

It’s support like yours that encourages me to keep you entertained and informed. At the beginning of the next season (September 2020), I will be changing the layout of my show. I want to continue with interviews but I also want to go back to my roots and talk about one subject. I also want to add other segments. Keeping in mind that the overall show length with be longer... what other things would you like me to inform you of or entertain you with? This day in history? Book recommendations? Other ideas?
 
My patrons will be allowed to vote on what they’d like to see added, and then I’ll do just that. Actually sounds like a wonderful challenge and I can’t wait to see what happens.

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.

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.

A Brief History: Catherine Carey with Adrienne Dillard

A Brief History: Catherine Carey with Adrienne Dillard

September 13, 2019

This is a supplemental episode of the Tudors Dynasty Podcast and is guest hosted by author Adrienne Dillard.

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.

About Adrienne:

Adrienne Dillard, is a graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies with emphasis in History from Montana State University-Northern. She has been an eager student of history for most of her life and has completed in-depth research on the American Revolutionary War time period in American History and the history and sinking of the Titanic. Her senior university capstone paper was on the discrepancies in passenger lists on the ill-fated liner and Adrienne was able to work with Encyclopedia Titanica for much of her research on that subject. Her previous works include best-selling novel,"Cor Rotto: A Novel of Catherine Carey" and "Catherine Carey in a Nutshell" for MadeGlobal's History in a Nutshell series. Her most recent novel, The Raven's Widow: A Novel of Jane Boleyn was released in February 2017. When she isn't writing, Adrienne works as an administrative assistant in the financial services industry and enjoys spending time with her husband, Kyle, and son, Logan, at their home in the Pacific Northwest.

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.

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.
