BBC History Magazine’s April issue goes on sale in the UK on 28 March, and it’s a Tudor special! It includes three features on the Tudor family and their era:
- The trial of Anne Boleyn –Guilty as charged, or an innocent woman? Suzannah Lipscomb examines theories as to why Henry VIII sent Anne Boleyn to the scaffold in 1536.
- The Spanish Armada –Elizabeth I’s England was ill-prepared for the attempted Spanish invasion of 1588, says Robert Hutchinson.
- The Tudor breakfast revolution –Ian Mortimer discovers that breakfast hasn’t always been regarded as the most important meal of the day
Fantastic — Can’t wait to get this one!
