The Tudors were an unforgettable dynasty who wielded absolute power during a remarkably. turbulent time in English history. Each ruler's survival required a fierce struggle to maintain control - often against incredible odds.
From Henry VII, England's last king to win the crown in battle, and the tyrannical Henry VIII with his succession of wives, to the fiercely Catholic 'Bloody Mary', and her sister, Elizabeth, the 'Virgin queen', Jane Bingham examines just how fairly history has treated these Tudor rulers.
Both as politicians and as individuals, it is no wonder these larger-than-life monarchs still capture our imaginations today.
