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.   Wars of the Roses: Open - 39:37 Katherine of Aragon: 39:38 - 1:08:34 Bess of Hardwick: 1:08:35 - 1:18:30 -- Credits: Written by: Rebecca Larson & Stephanie Stohrer Voiced by: Rebecca Larson, Stephanie Stohrer, Rachael Dickzen & Heather R.

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.

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.

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 (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 (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 (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 (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 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)
