Since I am technically in my off-season, I put together this shorter episode to keep you learning about the Tudors over the summer months. A special shout out to Matthew Lewis for doing the male parts for me - it was great fun to put this one together! -- Written by: Rebecca Larson Voiced by: Rebecca Larson & Matthew Lewis Produced by: Rebecca Larson Imaging by: Troy Larson Music Credits:Music from https://filmmusic.io"Folk Round" by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com)License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)
Tower Warden on Anne Boleyn

Tower Warden on Anne Boleyn

On this final episode of the 2019/2020 season, I welcomed back Tara Ball to discuss the execution and burial of Anne Boleyn. Tara is a Warden of the White Tower, and has a fascination with Anne Boleyn. Her occupation and passion are able to collide every day she goes to work.   *Note: My regular season runs September-May. In the months of June, July and August I am preparing for the next season, BUT I may throw in some supplemental ones - so stayed tuned! -- Please see my show notes including book links, maps and the guide to Anne's skeleton at TudorDynastyPodcast.com -- Written by: Rebecca Larson Voiced by: Rebecca Larson & Tara Ball Produced by: Rebecca Larson Imaging by: Troy Larson Music Credits:Music from https://filmmusic.io"Folk Round" by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com)License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)
Welcome to the show - I’m Rebecca Larson, host of the Tudors Dynasty Podcast, and today’s episode is a bit different from previous episodes as this time I am the guest. I was recently asked by Rosie, the host of the History, eh? Podcast to come on and talk about Thomas Seymour - how could I refuse an invitation like that!? So...for those of you who have been following my journey with Thomas Seymour, I hope you enjoy this episode.    Please, please, check out Rosie's podcast.

On this episode Suzannah and I chat about Tudor women, a bit about Tudor queens, a little about Anne Askew, we chat about witchcraft, and then we wrap it up with Henry VIII. You don’t want to miss a minute of it.  -- Written by: Rebecca Larson Voiced by: Rebecca Larson & Professor Suzannah Lipscom Produced by: Rebecca Larson Imaging by: Troy Larson Music Credits:Music from https://filmmusic.io"Folk Round" by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com)License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)
*Warning: This episode contains some explicit language, nothing serious, but don't listen with little ears around.   Dr Estelle Paranque is Lecturer in Early Modern History at New College of the Humanities at Northeastern, and an Honorary Research Fellow within the Centre for the Study of the Renaissance at the University of Warwick. She is the author of Elizabeth I of England Through Valois Eyes: Power, Representation, and Diplomacy in the Reign of the Queen, 1558-1588 (Palgrave Macmillan, 2018) and has published several essays on Elizabeth I, French monarchs, and other European queens.   I had the privilege to speak with historian Dr Estelle Paranque on the subject, by the way, her favorite subject, and we discussed everything from her relationship with Robert Dudley, her similarities to Anne Boleyn, and yes, I found a way to discuss Thomas Seymour - because, let’s be honest, you can’t talk about Elizabeth’s early years without discussing Thomas.   For Show Notes, please go to https://tudorsdynastypodcast.com/show-notes/ -- Written by: Rebecca Larson Voiced by: Rebecca Larson & Dr Estelle Paranque Produced by: Rebecca Larson Imaging by: Troy Larson Music Credits:Music from https://filmmusic.io"Folk Round" by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com)License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)  
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. -- SHOW NOTES WITH UROSCOPY WHEEL   -- Written by: Rebecca Larson Voiced by: Rebecca Larson & Seamus O'Caellaigh Produced by: Rebecca Larson Imaging by: Troy Larson Music Credits:Music from https://filmmusic.io "Folk Round" by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com) License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)
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.   SHOW NOTES WITH FAMILY TREE AND IMAGES   -- Written by: Rebecca Larson Voiced by: Rebecca Larson & Sarah J Hodder Produced by: Rebecca Larson Imaging by: Troy Larson Music Credits:Music from https://filmmusic.io "Folk Round" by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com) License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)

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'.  -- Follow Wendy on Twitter:  @wendyjdunn  Official Website:  https://www.wendyjdunn.com/  Amazon:   https://www.amazon.com/Wendy-J-Dunn/e/B004FRTZFA/ref=dp_byline_cont_book_1   -- Patreon.com/TudorsDynasty click "Become a Patron" Written by: Rebecca Larson Voiced by: Rebecca Larson & Dr. Wendy J Dunn Produced by: Rebecca Larson Imaging by: Troy Larson Music Credits:Music from https://filmmusic.io "Folk Round" by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com) License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)

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.
