Award winning Tudor and Stuart historian, Leanda de Lisle will be giving a talk at The Queen’s House as part of their ‘The ‘Lost’ Tudors’ lecture series.
‘The Tudor age was born in the violence of the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485. The bloody death of Richard III secured victory for Henry Tudor, ending the Plantagenet era and the long Wars of the Roses. The triumphant Henry VII set out to secure the crown and establish a new, powerful dynasty. What followed would prove to be one of the most turbulent periods in English history as successive Tudor monarchs strove, through sometimes extraordinary means, to maintain their hold on the throne.
This series of lectures explores the ‘lost’ Tudors, key figures whose destinies might otherwise have turned history in a decidedly different direction.
