BIRTHDAY GIVE AWAY!
I am very excited to announce the next give away for the Anne Boleyn: From Queen to HistoryA facebook page! On June 6th my little facebook page will celebrate its first birthday and to celebrate I wanted to thank all of you wonderful people by giving away a Tudor book!
I started this page almost a year ago with the encouragement of several dear friends - Natalie from On The Tudor Trail and Claire from The Anne Boleyn Files – two beautiful and amazing woman who inspire me more and more each day!
When I started this page I never thought that I would come this far. I never thought that I would be able to write posts about Anne and Mary Boleyn and Tudor history. And never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine that I would have the opportunity to meet and befriend so many beautiful and amazing people.
Over the last year my love of Tudor history has grown from strength to strength. I started this page because I had a fascination and admiration for Anne Boleyn, yet as I continued to read about Tudor history I found that I fell in love with her sister Mary Boleyn. I adore both of the Boleyn sisters and find them to be such a source of strength and inspiration in my life.
To celebrate my little facebook page turning the big ONE, on June 6th I am excited to be able to give away a copy of David Load’s new book “The Tudors”
The Tudors History of a Dynasty
By David Loades
This book is abut one of the most powerful and influential dynasties in English history, a dynasty of five monarchs who ruled their domain fo over a century. The Tudors were concerned to build a government that would endure, hence their constant concern with the succession – an anxiety which lasted throughout the century.
Although all Tudor monarchs believed that their authority derived from God, they had different ways of expressing that conviction, and above all they ebleived in ruling with consent and advice. For this reason they built partnerships, not with the old nobility as their predecessors had done, but with the wider community of the genry, and above all with parliament. They were not in any sense democrats, but the partnerships which they built in church and state lasted for centuries, and still influences the way we look at our polotics today.
The Tudor age was an era of momentous religious, social and political chance and David Loades provides an expert overview of this pivotal period of British history.
While I have not read this book myself yet I have read several of David Loades other books and I have to say that I quite adore him as an author! He has a very smooth writing style that flows and is easy to read. His books also contain a wealth of knowledge and I have learnt quite a lot about Tudor history through reading Loades’ books. I have my own copy and am looking forward to reading this book myself!
