An intriguing miscellany of such need-to-know information as the name Henry VIII jousted under (Sir Loyal Heart), the type of pet owned by both Katherine of Aragon and Elizabeth I (monkeys), and the item ladies of the court commonly used as leg-warmers when traveling (spaniels) The five Tudor monarchs -- Henry VII, Henry VIII, Edward VI, Mary I, and Elizabeth I -- were some of the most influential rulers in British history. This volume explores all aspects of life in the Tudor age, from life at court and at the grand country estates where Queen Elizabeth paused during her famous "progresses" to the day-to-day activities at the teeming taverns and plague-ridden cities of the Tudor kingdom. With chapters on the people, palaces, and pastimes of the age; some amusing secrets of the Tudor medicine cabinet and closet; and stories from some of the most fabulous, eccentric, and opulent entertainments of the age, this book will delight anyone with an interest in Tudor history -- or indeed, in British history as a whole.
