In this week's Claire Chats talk, I am continuing my series on the Tudor monarchs, and examining their reigns for "the good, the bad, the ugly", i.e. their achievements and the not-so-good stuff, by looking at the reign of the third Tudor monarch, King Edward VI.
Of course, Edward VI died before he reached his majority, so in examining his reign I have to look at "the good, the bad and the ugly" of the two men who led his government: Edward Seymour, Duke of Somerset, and John Dudley, Duke of Northumberland.
