Although the Tudors reigned from 1485 - 1603 our story begins much earlier, in the year of 1461 with a character called Owen Tudor. Owen was the source from which the Tudor dynasty would eventually spring. 1461 - 1485 saw the Yorkists Edward IV, Edward V and Richard III on the throne, until in 1485 the Tudor reign began with Henry VII. Henry VII was followed in the year 1509 by probably the most famous of all the Tudor monarchs Henry VIII, who with his six wives takes a very colourful place in history. Then came Edward VI, Mary I and Elizabeth I, along with Lady Jane Grey (the nine day queen) who historically gets very little mention. All in all, the Tudor period was one of intrigue and passionate affairs, one that even today can still capture the imagination. Re-enactments and in-depth expert analysis of the Tudor period by Alan Ereira add to the enjoyment of this historical insight.
