The former was one of the most educated women in Europe, raised to be queen and in many ways Henry's equal. In contrast the latter held none of the qualities Henry sought. Yet both married Henry VIII and both had those marriages annulled. During this talk historian Kindra Jones explores the series of events that led these two women to tie their destinies to the English throne and how, in their own ways, they each held power.
The talk will end with a short demonstration of 'The Dressing of a Tudor Queen'.Views: 304 | Enquiries: 1
