The Tudor period of British history is one of the most fascinating as well as the bloodiest. There was religious turmoil for over 50 years. Thousands of Catholics and Protestants were executed for their religious beliefs. An innocent Queen was set aside while another one was executed. Did Richard III have the Princes in the Tower murdered or was it Tudor political propaganda? Did Elizabeth I have a child or was she the "Virgin Queen"? We will explore these questions and many more.
