Talk about a bad breakup. Henry VIII went from being named the Defender of the Faith to denouncing the Pope and naming himself Head of the Church. But how different was Henry's religion from Roman Catholicism? How were the regular people of England affected?
Join us as we discuss Tudor fashions, the many layers of clothing required, and why purple was such an expensive fabric dye.
(Note: Sorry for the bad audio in the beginning. We had the wrong microphone set up for Garrett. Whoops, our bad.)
As promised, we talk about the CW show Reign. What did they do right? (Spoilers - almost nothing.) What did they get wrong? Plus, we discuss the real Catherine de Medici and some poison dresses.
Woah, this is heavy. Mary, Queen of Scots had an interesting life, but not as dramatic as Reign may make it seem. Although she became Queen of Scotland at six days old and was much loved by her people, the Scottish lords had other ideas. And as a Tudor relative, Mary had her fair share of marriages.
