On today’s show, Dr Linda Porter and I discuss Queen Mary I, Kateryn Parr, Mary, Queen of Scots, Charles I and his children as well as the many mistresses and illegitimate children of Charles II. If you think the Tudors are fascinating then you’ll love to learn about the Stuarts as well!
I’m Rebecca Larson, host of the Tudors Dynasty Podcast and owner of TudorsDynasty.com. Telling the stories of those who lived centuries before us is what I enjoy doing most. Whether it be a show on one subject or an interview with an author/historian, I’ll bring you the tales of 16th century England.
