Dr. Estelle Paranque

I had the privilege to speak with historian Dr Estelle Paranque on the subject, by the way, her favorite subject, and we discussed everything from her relationship with Robert Dudley, her similarities to Anne Boleyn, and yes, I found a way to discuss Thomas Seymour – because, let’s be honest, you can’t talk about Elizabeth’s early years without discussing Thomas.
