Your cheeky guide to the dynasty


There’s nothing like reading about history through the accounts of people who were actually there. I am truly fascinated by eyewitness accounts of the past, and have just found this lovely collection of first-hand reports on It includes reports on Tudor love stories, executions, speeches, etc.

Not to say that eyewitnesses aren’t biased in some way, or have injected willfull thinking into their observations, but it sure is awesome to see snippets of history in this sense. Enjoy!
