The Tudor Society

The Six Wives of Henry VIII:Monarchy and Matrimony in Tudor England has just launched a new course by Gareth Russell, editor of the Tudor Society's Tudor Life magazine and author of The Emperors: How Europe's Rulers Were Destroyed by the First World War, A History of the English Monarchy: From Boadicea to Elizabeth I and the forthcoming Young and Damned and Fair: The Life and Tragedy of Catherine Howard at the Court of Henry VIII.

Although I'm biased, being involved in, I can hand-on-heart say that this is an excellent course. Gareth has done a brilliant job in creating and narrating each of the seven units and what I really love about this course is that he doesn't look at the same old topics regarding these wives, he "uses each wife to explore a different aspect of monarchy in Tudor England" and then finishes with a unit considering why these women remain so popular and how they have "been re-invented and revitalised by the age of Hollywood, television and best-selling novels". Bravo, Gareth, you've done a wonderful job!

There is a special introductory launch price for the course, you can get it for $20 instead of $30 if you use coupon code SIXWIVES. The coupon is valid until Monday 26th September 2016.
