the TUDOR TUTOR

Your cheeky guide to the dynasty

Ah, But Who’s the Joker?

In the Valentine’s Day poll below, Henry VIII’s first three wives seem to be in the strongest race for queen of Henry’s heart. Apparently, it was all downhill after Jane Seymour.

But when we think “Queen of Hearts” in a traditional deck of cards, who’s that girl? Popular belief is that the queen of hearts is none other than Elizabeth of York, the true love of Tudor dynasty founder Henry VII. What with her Tudor-era headdress and the Tudor rose in her hand, it’s a convincing argument if you ask me.
