    Children of Englandkindle Òread Children of England , UKAlthough I wouldn’t say I’m a “Tudor Expert” okay maybe I would; I do like to think I am well versed on the topic I first read Alison Weir’s “The Children of Henry VIII” almost a decade ago before I was as acuainted with the Tudor dynasty Although both are far different experiences re reading this history piece still brought enjoyment once againImmediately in the first sentence of the Preface Weir states that The Children of Henry VIII “is not a history of England during the troubles reigns of Edward VI Jane Grey let’s stress for the beginner Tudor reader that Jane was NOT Henry’s daughter Mary I and Elizabeth I but a chronicle of the person

    Children of Englandkindle Òread Children of England , UKThe title of this book is a bit misleading While Weir does her usual fine job of elucidating characters and their times calling this The Children of Henry VIII is a bit misleading since Lady Jane Grey's nine day reign is included Her story as a child until her brief reign is also told This makes a great deal of sense historically since she was labeled sovereign by some lords upon the death of Edward VI and before Mary's supporters drove Grey's handlers from powerThe book does a nice job of outlining the personalities experiences and beliefs of Edward Mary and Elizabeth the children of Henry VIII as well as Lady Jane Grey also of royal blood Edward's reign after his father's death was brief with his death from tuberculosis in his middle teens Weir outlines his personality and his positions on issues of the day He never ruled as full sovereign because of his age but many thought him promising material He was strongly supportive of a radical religious stance moving

    Children of Englandkindle Òread Children of England , UKThe Royals of England always seem to get a lot of publicity than most others ueen Victoria's reign the abdication of Edward VIII the family of Elizabeth II Princess Dianna Princess Margaret Prince Charles Wills and Kate It wasn't that much different in Tudor EnglandAs we who have read Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies learned it wasn't easy to be at Court or a Tudor child Hopes plots and fortunes were constantly changing Weir has a firm grasp of that period and gives us a good narrative and great deal of detail about each of the four children and how their lives were directed and influenced It answered some uestions and gave me a much better perspective on all the elements

    Children of Englandkindle Òread Children of England , UKI'm copying this from other posts I made on the Tudor group but thought I'd share here as well July 1509 I'm really enjoying learning about Jane in The Children of England also by AW Thought I'd share a little for anyone who like me doesn't know much about her The first part of the book takes place directly after the death of Henry VIII and goes into a lot of detail regarding Jane's feelings toward her parents and her preference to learning above all else as learning was the only thing she could do safely without fear of punishment It also speaks of her betrothal to Lord Hertford being broken in favor of her parents' desire for higher position as well as to fit the Duke of Northumberland's schemes to

    Children of Englandkindle Òread Children of England , UKNow this was funyes yes one can absolutely enjoy oneself while reading about Henry VII Bloody Mary and that fascinating familyAlison Weir may not be a traditional scholar of the Tudors but whatever she lacks in official credentials she amply makes up for it with seriously good research and most important of all a clear approachable style of writing that serves as a brilliant introduction to the Tudor universe and for those familiar with it perhaps a pause from the seriousness of traditional biographies?This one is another example of such success while to the best of my knowledge respecting known historical facts Weir uses an ample selection of sources from the times to tell the story of the convoluted years between King Henry´s death and the crowning of ueen Elizabeth I Starting with the rise to power of the way too young and very easily played King Edward Weir perfectly depicts the conflicts that immediately arose within
