    Just finished reading your wonderful magazine. I really enjoyed reading about Anne Boleyn and Henry Percy and Edmund Bonner, what a rotter he was but it would make a good film . I’m trying to think which actor I would choose to play Bonner

      Hmmm… I think I’d cast someone like the Scottish actor Brian Cox or James Cosmo, I don’t know why and they’re both Scottish, which doesn’t fit, but I think they’d work.

    Tom Hardy would have to be the actor for me , I only wish that the BBC and otherT.V channels would make more historical series as the are very popular . It’s the first time ever my husband read your magazine and he was very impressed by the contents. He likes to read the History magazine every month but he said he would start to read it this magazine too

    This is the first issue I have read. I plan on checking out the back issues. The article about the Tower of London was great. I have seen pictures of the outside but this was the first time I have seen the Chapel of St. John the Evangelist. I would love to see more about the Tower. It has played an important role since at least 1078. I had never heard of Edmund Bonner before this issue. I know the heavy weights like Henry VIII, Elizabeth, Mary, Edward VI, the Seymour’s and the Boleyn’s. I love to find out new things such as this. I had a 12th great grandfather Thomas Bathurst and his son my 11th great grandfather who were both clothiers. Both must have been around Henry’s court. Thomas and his brother John were encouraged by Henry in the late 1530s in Canterbury and I think made a financial loan to the King and his son Robert also made loan to the Henry (5 pds) around 1542. Keep up the great work and bring us more articles about some of the lesser known people!
