I was suprised not to find a topic on the Tudor Dynasty! Surprised
Well on sunday,April 5th, the new season of The Tudors starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Henry VII!
It's avaliable on YouTube to watch:

I was amazed!
It started amazing just like it ended.
I think this is going to be a great season.
Even though i'm going to miss Natalie Dormer, she made the best Anne Boleyn I have ever seen.
Johnny is a powerful & bold Henry VIII. He takes my breath away because he is tough and can be heartless like the real Henry was. I sometimes actually believe he is the real Henry VIII.
I just love his acting.

Did anyone else watch it?
What did you think?

No. But it is nice to have a thread on the Tudor Dynasty. Who was your favourite character amongst the Kings and Queens? Mine is Queen Elizabeth I. Thought she was quite formidable for her time and all of the religious wars surrounding her. She started with lack of support and empty coffers and when she passed away the country was doing well in comparison. She was quite a dedicated ruler.

Yes indeed.
Here's the family tree for the Tudors:

Agreed. Simple and easy to read. Looks as though Henry VIII is remembered more for his dealings with the wives in his life than as a King. Possibly the fact that he sorted out the Vatican with the divorce of his first wife is a landmark in the history of that time, but interesting that the occurence was motivated more by his desire to divorce his first wife, than really a popular decision by the country as a whole.

I haven't seen any episodes, I'm not even sure if they do show it here, but I was thinking about buying the DVD, because I love the English historical royalty, I have read a bunch of stuff about Henry VIII, really interesting story

Yes, his Father . that would be 6 Wives actually .. The Tudors is completely Innacurate , sometimes merging characters ( such as Henry's sisters ) If you realy want to learn about the life and marriages of Henry VIII I such get you all get yourselves to your nearest library or bookshop and Get a good Biography .. just don't waste your time on this trevesty...

Anne of Cleves was a canny one , she kept her head down and survived them all ...

Seek out The 6 Wives of Henry VIII , With Keith Michell or even Henry VIII with Ray Winstone . they're both much better ..

Thanks. I don't know where I got it from that there are five wives, but there are six as stated above. I found the following info in Wikipedia quite interesting:
Quote:
- Henry sixth wife, Catherine Parr, was probably named after his first wife Catherine of Aragon, as her mother worked in Queen Catherine's service. - All of Henry’s six wives were related to each other in some way, the closest relation being first cousins (Catherine Howard and Anne Boleyn)

- Several of his wives worked in at least one another of his wives' service, Anne Boleyn worked in Catherine of Aragon's service, Jane Seymour worked in Catherine of Aragon's and Anne Boleyn's service, Catherine Howard worked in Anne of Cleves's service.
