The Lives of Tudor Women
With Elizabeth Norton
21 April 2017
A lively and insightful study of the many roles played by women in the Tudor era, from queens to wetnurses and countesses to serving maids.
The turbulent Tudor age never fails to capture the imagination. But what was it actually like to be a woman during this period? This was a time when death in infancy or during childbirth was rife; when marriage was usually a legal contract, not a matter for love, and the education of women was minimal at best. Yet the Tudor century was also dominated by powerful and characterful women in a way that no era had been before.
Elizabeth Norton is a historian of the queens of England and the Tudor period. She has also recently published The Temptation of Elizabeth Tudor.
