This talk will take the audience behind closed doors to explore the private lives, loves and scandals of the most celebrated royal dynasty in history. Here, the Tudors led a very different life to the one that most of their subjects witnessed.
Find out more about –
Dr Tracy Borman is an expert on the Tudors and uniquely placed to explore their private lives. Her highly acclaimed book, Elizabeth’s Women, was Book of the Week on Radio 4, and her latest biography, Thomas Cromwell: the untold story of Henry VIII’s most faithful servant, was a Sunday Times bestseller. As well as being a writer and historian, Tracy is joint Chief Curator of Historic Royal Palaces. She therefore has unparalleled access to the archives, collections and palaces in which so much of the narrative takes place, notably Hampton Court and the Tower of London.
Dr Tracy Borman will be available for book signing after the talk, and for those who wish to purchase a book, they will be on sale at the event.
