Hi, I’m Rebecca Larson, host of the Tudors Dynasty Podcast and owner of both TudorsDynasty.com and HistoryLair.com. I am a Tudor historian who prefers to focus on Thomas Seymour and the Seymour family.
In February 2017 I launched my first episode. To my surprise I’m still going after all these years. I never imagined a podcast would be the thing that brought me together with so many amazing history lovers. Many of my best friends are people I met throughout this community. It’s amazing.
I’m always looking for new research materials, or lectures I can watch/listen to, and love a good thesis find online. Continually learning about different aspects of the Tudor dynasty has aided in my overall knowledge of the era. I love the Tudors, but I honestly love all aspects of history, in general.
Here are a few lectures:

I’ve been lucky enough to be part of three Tudor Summit events. Here are the videos from those. I laugh when I watch them now because my knowledge on the time period improves daily.
