This podcast is a bit unconventional for me. I've decided that talking about the Tudors, or any royal history, for that matter is more fun when you have someone to do it with. Sari Graham and I have become friends through social media and we share an interest in all things Tudor. I am honored to have her as a guest on the show today so she can teach me, and maybe you as well, a bit about the Wars of the Roses.

Rank #4: The Sisters Boleyn with Christine Morgan

Podcast cover
Read more

With this podcast I share a variety of stories from the most well-known dynasty of them all; The Tudors. From simple stories about the people of the time to the drama that was the reign of Henry VIII and of course, religion and politics.

This episode of the podcast is brought to you in part by The Falcon Nest - Handmade, history-themed jewelry. The Falcon Nest specializes in gorgeous replicas of the famous Anne Boleyn “B” necklace.  See more at - the-falcon-nest.com  - and be sure to use promo code TUDORSDYNASTY to receive 15% off!

So, May 19th is the 483rd anniversary of the execution of Anne Boleyn - I hate to call it an anniversary because that would indicate a celebration, and it was no real celebration for Anne. Except, without her execution I don't believe she would be as popular as she is today. Anne’s sister Mary has been mostly lost to history but part of her still carries on today - we’ll cover that more in a little bit.

On today’s show we have special guest, Christine Morgan - Christine is a historian and web series creator from Charlotte, NC and hold an MA in European History and has been invited to present her research internationally at history conference in the US and in the UK.

Her research covers the history of royal families, royal mistresses, religion, theatre, and propaganda. Christine’s web series called “Untitled History Project” which she writes, researches and hosts, has garnered support in her community and has been used as teaching material in high schools and universities in the US.

Rank #6: Understanding the Man - Henry VIII

May 17, 2018 at 8:31am

As many of you may already know, King Henry VIII is my favorite monarch of the Tudor dynasty. If it wasn’t for his reign I do not believe the Tudors would be as popular as they are today. 

In this series on Henry VIII I want to take a different look at the king who executed two of his six wives. My mission is to make those of you who look at him as a tyrant to see what made him into the man he became later into his reign.

The format of this episode is much different but is actually a combination of the two types of episodes you'll find on this channel.

Welcome to the Tudors Dynasty podcast, I am your host, Rebecca Larson, owner of TudorsDynasty.com and welcome to Queen Elizabeth Month on the show!

Elizabeth Tudor has always been on the back-burner for me. While I love the fact that she is the daughter of King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn I’ve never been as interested in her reign as I have been for her father’s.

On this episode I have with me my good friend, Sari Graham to talk about her love for the person with the most recognizable name in world history, Anne Boleyn; Daughter. Sister. Lady-in-Waiting. Marquess. Queen. Mother. Heretic. Whore. Witch. Traitor. Victim. Probably one of the most recognizable names in English history, her life’s story has been immortalized in numerous books, film and television series in the 483 years since her untimely death. The world still feels the ripples of the waves Anne Boleyn made during her lifetime, including the highly successful reign of her only child, Queen Elizabeth I.

Rank #14: Most Fearless Women in Tudor England

Episode: Most Fearless Women in Tudor England
I recently finished reading a couple of books about Mary Tudor, sister of King Henry VIII and Queen of France; it got me thinking about how fearless some of these women in the Tudor period really were. By today’s standards they would not be considered as brave (depending on what part of the world you live in of course), but in 16th century England the things these women did may have been considered reckless and disobedient by their male counterparts.

Rank #15: Interview with Historian Dan Jones

Podcast cover
Read more

 *Note: This episode may include curse words or statements that may offend you, but let's be honest, that's what makes this one the most fun!

This episode is my final episode before I take a brief break from recording - don’t worry, I’ll be back in September. When I made the announcement that I would be switching to seasons in order to be able to spend more time with my family I  figured I needed my final episode to be a big one - one to hold you over for two months. I am pleased to announce that (in my opinion) I was able to do that by booking Dan Jones as a guest.

Dan Jones is a historian and author who many of you may recognize without needing an introduction. For those who are not as familiar with Dan you may recognize him as the host of Secrets of Great British Castles on Netflix, or Britain’s Bloodiest Dynasty as well as a plethora of Tudor themed programs. Dan has eight books under his belt with his most recent one, Crusaders due out in the US his Fall.

In this episode we really cover a WIDE variety of topics and I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed recording it.

In this final part of the series I look into the interrogations of those around Katheryn Howard, her confessions, final words and execution.

This series has truly been a labor of love. I never would have thought that I would enjoy learning so much about Katheryn Howard - she is not as boring as I had once believed.
