Can’t get this song out of my head!
Stunning Tudor architecture. Absolute genius for the time! #TudorEngland #1500s (at Lavenham UK)
Religion, personality and difference ultimately ended the Tudor dynasty. It was orchestrated through a series of tragic events that was in part killed by the desire for perfectionism, that all started with Henry VIII. Portrayed here are the last monarchs that ruled during this period.
Though most would argue Elizabeth I was the most influential, some forget that Mary, or ‘Bloody Mary’ as she was otherwise known, came to the throne against all the odds. She overthrew Protestant Jane and defined England back into Catholicism. Her plight was only defeated by her Protestant half sister, who Mary eventually had to accept would be her successor. Elizabeth I never gave birth to an heir and upon her death the Tudor period was over.
