    There have been an awful lot of books, movies, and TV shows about the Tudors Their cultural impression is larger than life Events of historic importance certainly occurred during their reigns, probably most significantly the Protestant Reformation, but it is their colorful antics that make them memorable Even the Plantagenets who preceded them, ruling for 331 years in contrast to a

    In her look at the Tudor Dynasty, Ms De Lisle has delivered a very reader friendly book Starting with the Owen Tudor, Henry VII s grandfather and who gave the dynasty its name, the author looks at the family that ruled England from 1485 thru the death of Elizabeth I in 1603 In telling their story Ms De Lisle states to understand the Tudors, one must understand how they saw themselves.This is

    Disclaimer Arc read via Netgalley Thank you Netgalley, Perseus Books, and Public Affairs Books.I can hear you asking the question do we really need another book about the Tudors Really Well, I don t know about need, but I can say this is a very excellent look at the Tudor family If you were going to buy one book about the Tudor dynasty, this should be it It s not that I didn t like Meyer s book a

    For us Tudorphiles, there really isn t anything we don t already know about one of history s most dramatic families So what s the point of reading another book on the Tudor dynasty Perhaps this can be answered by Leanda de Lisle in Tudor The Family Story.Lisle s version of events in Tudor stands out instantly, as the tone presented to the reader is not simply that of a recollection of Tudor monarchy l

    Leanda de Lisle has a gift for writing historical books When the history is as compelling as that of the Tudors, no embellishment is needed, and de Lisle tells the story masterfully This book is impeccably researched, and de Lisle backs up everything she says with primary sources, which she then uses to debunk a lot of popular myths and misconceptions that have sprung up around the Tudors.The great thing about this

    I both read and write history, so I inhaled this 560 page book ARC that opens with Owen Tudor, a commoner, to the end of Elizabeth I s reign.The author, de Lisle wrote through the lens of the Tudor era, a time of warring, intrigue, and intense scrabbling over succession The early Tudor monarchs were not royal and their paranoia of losing their thrones drove everything they did from marriages and divorces, to politics and reli
