‘A model of popular history’
‘A lively overview... Rex is a wry commentator on the game of monarchy’
PAUL LAY, HISTORY TODAY
The Tudor period is regarded by many as England’s golden age, and still casts a spell over the public imagination. Whether it’s the glittering rule of Elizabeth, the ruthless power of her father Henry VIII, or the bloody and radical reign of Mary, the Tudors remain the most fascinating English dynasty. Richard Rex looks at how the public and private lives of the Tudors were inextricably linked, and how each Tudor monarch exuded charisma and danger in equal measure.
