About this Blog

The purpose of this blog is to discuss the Tudor's, from Henry VII in 1485 to Elizabeth I in 1603.  We can also discuss prior to 1485 & after 1603, as it will more then likely relate to The Tudors.  The blogs will be about past & present movies/series, historic events, books, articles, my opinion, your opinion, updates to the site, and anything else relating to the Tudors.  At times, I will go beyond the Tudors & discuss other various English Monarchs.   Besides About This Blog Page, here are the other pages on this site:
