Episode 103: Queen Consorts, the Grey Sisters and Lady Cromwell

When we began planning episode 103, I don’t think we imagined that it would be a themed episode. This episode we were fortunate enough to have both Elizabeth Norton and Leanda de Lisle on to talk about women, or women near the throne. Elizabeth chats with me about queen consorts (oh the fun!), and Leanda is asked YOUR submitted questions on the Grey sisters. Then I teach you a bit about Elizabeth Seymour (sister to Queen Jane) in A Brief History.  

And, as a treat to all listeners, everyone gets access to Elizabeth Norton’s full answers in “IF I Made You Choose” this episode! As patrons you will now (after this episode) receive early access to the answers prior to the public. ¬†

Episode 102: Wars of the Roses, Katherine of Aragon and Bess of Hardwick

The Wars of the Roses, or the Cousins Wars, were one of the most deadly and tumultuous times in English history, resulting in the death of many nobles. Today, Rachael Dickzen and I talk about some of the key players of the time: Henry VI, Edward IV, the Kingmaker, and Richard, Duke of York. We also discuss the women of the Wars of the Roses, including Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort and Margaret of Anjou. We take a look at the family tree of Edward III and how that affected history, and we also touch base on sanctuary and quick executions.

NEW SEASON – Episode 97: Alison Weir, Matthew Lewis and a Madwoman

Welcome to the new season!!   I wanted to start of the new season with a bang, and so I was able to line up best-selling author and historian Alison Weir. Alison stops by to chat about Katheryn Howard, the Tudors….and of course we talk about Thomas Seymour.   The second segment of the show is called ‘Ask the Expert’. This segment is for my listeners to be able to submit their questions to a historian on a specific subject. This episode my expert is historian/author Matthew Lewis and he answers your Richard III (and princes in the Tower) questions.   Lastly, we wrap up the episode with a ‘Brief History’ – just like the old days, I tell you a story about a specific person who lived between 1485 and 1603…this time it’s a fascinating story about a madwoman who claimed to be the daughter of…..(you’ll have to listen).   *Patron exclusive content:

I’m late posting this here as it was originally published everywhere else on June 26.
