Guess Who's Alive? (aka Episode 017: Margaret Beaufort)

I know I'm skipping around in timelines here.  I mostly just talk about what I'm interested in at the moment.  In the future I'll try to move more chronological.  Margaret Beaufort was Henry VII's mother - so Henry VIII's paternal grandmother.  A teeny bit before our time, but a fascinating lady and worth an episode as an introduction to her.  Read more about her - she's a mighty fierce lady.

Here are some pictures - most portraits of her were done after she had died, and may have been used as Tudor propaganda to show how pious she was.

And for fun, because who doesn't like babies, here's my Hannah helping me podcast :)

  1. Glad you're back! I really enjoy your podcast! I have recently gotten very interested in Tudor history and have listened to all of your past episodes. Was so excited this morning when I saw a new one download on my ipod. You are very informative and easy to listen to. Thank you for all the great Tudor information!

    Also, Hannah is adorable! Congrats of being a new Mom! I also read Project Heather and I know you waited a long time for her ♥ Enjoy every moment! xo

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! : )
