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.

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.
