In January, the Lady Jayne/Streatham portrait went to the Holburne Museum in Bath, as part of ‘The Tudors: Passion, Power and Politics’ exhibition, which ran until 8th May.
The January edition of ‘Tudor Life Magazine’ included Roland Hui’s article, ‘The Tudors and the Tower of London’ which featured Lady Jane.
Two books the featured Jane were published in February. ‘Tudor Roses: From Margaret Beaufort to Elizabeth I’ by Amy Licence and ‘Cecily Bonville-Grey – Marchioness of Dorset; From Riches to Royalty’ by Sarah J Hodder. I interviewed Sarah later in the year.
As part of ‘History for Ukraine’, Nicola Tallis gave a talk about Lady Jane. Another book that featured Jane was also published this month, ‘House of Tudor: A Grisly History’ by Mickey Mayhew and you can read my interview with the author and my review.
In April, an article I co-authored with Lee Porritt (from ‘Lady Jane Grey Revisited’), ‘Lady Jane Grey: Forget What You Know!’ was included in the 7th edition of ‘The Historians Magazine.’
As part of HistFest 2022, Joanne Paul took part in a Q&A about ‘The House of Dudley’ with Dr Wanda Wyporska. In ‘Not Just The Tudors’ podcast, Suzannah Lipscomb visited the Holburne Museum to discuss the exhibition with the curator Monserrat Pis Marcos. The Lady Jayne/Streatham portrait was included in the podcast.
In May, Joanne Paul had articles in both BBC History Magazine (‘The Family Behind the Tudors’) and History Today (‘The Black Legend of the House of Dudley’). Jane got a mention in both articles. Lee Porritt and I posted the first article in our ‘Investigating Jane’ series, ‘Part One: The Wedding’. Jane also briefly featured in Mary I in Writing: Letters, Literature, and Representation edited by Valerie Schutte and Jessica S Hower.
On the 21st of May, ‘The Tudors: Passion, Power and Politics’ exhibition moved to Liverpool and the Lady Jayne/Streatham portrait was on display at the Walker Gallery until 29th August. I updated ‘A look at how the Streatham portrait has been displayed over the years’.
In July, to mark the anniversary of Jane’s reign, Lee and I posted ‘Investigating Jane: Part 2 – Was Jane really that naïve? and ‘Part 3 – Queen Jane’s arrival at the Tower. Jane also briefly featured in ‘Writing Mary I: History, Historiography, and Fiction’ edited by Valerie Schutte and Jessica S Hower.
In August, ‘All About History Magazine’ had an article by Tracy Borman that had the briefest of mentions of Lady Jane.
Two books that featured Jane were published in the autumn, ‘Mortal Monarchs: 1000 Years of Royal Deaths’ by Suzie Edge and ‘Tudor England: A History’ by Lucy Wooding.
