On This Day in Tudor History

Claire Ridgway


If you are a fan of history, especially Tudor history, as I am, you will enjoy this day book filled with events and personages connected with the Tudors. Each day has its collection of people and events with connections to that day. My mind reels with the amount of research Ridgway has done to assemble this information.

If there is anyone, from the most obscure to the most prominent, with any connection to the tudors, they are included. Here you will find the stories of what happened on a particular day to the Tudor court.

For example, on my birthday, Prince Arthur was born to Queen Elizabeth of York and Henry VII. The day also marks the death of Sir William Paston, who served Henry VIII as a sheriff and commissioner.

This book is the most complete collection of Tudor history as it happened, day by day, that I know of.
