Kateryn Parr with Dr. Linda Porter
As a queen consort of England, Kateryn Parr's history is often overshadowed by the events that allegedly occurred between her husband and Lady Elizabeth. The Victorian historians didn't help her reputation either. Agnes Strickland's Lives of the Queens of England depicts Parr as having an 'unrivaled skill as a nurse'.  Today I am joined by Dr. Linda Porter to get a feel for the real Kateryn Parr. Dr. Porter responds to many of the myths about Parr, as well as interesting stories about her life.   -- Love the Tudors?

Tudor tombs are some of the longest lasting pieces of art in England. Whether these tombs were made of bronze, stone or even wood, the history remains centuries later. Effigies on top of the tomb are, in some cases, the only image we have of an historical figure. But sadly, during the dissolution of the monasteries, many of these magnificent tombs were damaged or destroyed.   Who designed them, who created them, and who paid them!

Frances Howard with Elizabeth Fremantle
Welcome to Episode 122! This is the last of the off-season episodes and I’d like to thank Steph Stohrer for stepping up and helping to provide you with content for the last couple of months. The new season is going to be a bit different than what you’re used to, but you’ll still be getting all the same amazing content. On this episode, Steph chats with critically acclaimed author, Elizabeth Fremantle. Elizabeth has published four Tudor and Elizabethan set novels which many you are likely familiar with...and, as we’ll learn today she has an announcement to make (which many of you may already know) regarding one of her books! Today, Elizabeth is here to discuss the ever scandalous Frances Howard. You’ll want to stick around to hear about this wonderfully noteworthy worthy figure in history that we seldom hear about.
