    Henrietta Maria, Charles I’s Queen Consort

    Henrietta Maria, Charles I’s Queen Consort

    Charles I's Queen Henrietta Maria was perhaps the most reviled consort to have worn the crown of Britain's three kingdoms. To this day, she remains the wife who turned her husband Catholic - causing a civil war - and a cruel and bigoted mother.
    In this episode of Not Just the Tudors, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb dispels some of the myths about Henrietta Maria with author Leanda de Lisle, whose highly acclaimed book Henrietta Maria: Conspirator, Warrior, Phoenix Queen, reveals an altogether very different person.

    When London Shipped Poor Children to America

    When London Shipped Poor Children to America

    In 1618, almost 100 impoverished children from London - some as young as eight - arrived in Jamestown, Virginia to labour in the growing colony. It was the first example of transporting children to colonies that would continue into the twentieth century. 
    In this episode of Not Just the Tudors, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb finds out more from Dr. Deborah Albon whose groundbreaking research traces the lives of these children from urban poverty, through incarceration in Bridewell to, if they survived the Atlantic crossing, a life no less miserable in the New World.
    **WARNING: This episode contains some graphic descriptions of violence against young people**

    Hatton: Elizabeth I's Favourite?

    Hatton: Elizabeth I's Favourite?

    In the cut-throat world of the Elizabethan court, Sir Christopher Hatton became one of Elizabeth I’s favourites. After catching her eye in 1561, Hatton was quickly promoted to the Privy Council, making a significant impact on Elizabeth’s complex religious policy. Yet Hatton has often been overshadowed by such Tudor heavyweights as Dudley, Cecil and Walsingham.
    In this episode of Not Just the Tudors, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb finds out more from Dr. Neil Younger about Hatton’s rise from minor gentry to the Queen’s closest aide, and addresses the burning question: were Elizabeth and Hatton lovers?

    Batavia: The Worst Shipwreck in History

    Batavia: The Worst Shipwreck in History

    In 1628, a Dutch East India flagship called Batavia set sail from the Netherlands, never to reach her destination. Eight months into the voyage, the ship was wrecked on coral reef off the western coast of Australia. What then befell her surviving crew and passengers was horrifying and tragic. It has been described as “one of the worst horror stories in maritime history.” 
    In this episode of Not Just the Tudors, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb talks to author Jess Kidd. Her recent novel about Batavia, The Night Ship - based on her extensive research of sources and archives - has been named a Sunday Times’ Best Historical Fiction Book of the Year.

    Swords in Elizabethan England

    Swords in Elizabethan England

    In Elizabethan England, swords were everywhere. Hanging on girdles, used in plays and depicted in paintings, they were an important marker of status and martial prowess. Swordplay was a popular martial art and pastime enjoyed by all rungs of Tudor society. But what would these swords have looked like? And how did Elizabethan gentlemen fight with them? 
    In this episode of Not Just the Tudors, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb talks to Jacob H. Deacon, a doctoral student at the University of Leeds. Together they discuss the origins of swordplay and it’s relation to fencing, how it was regulated and performed by the mysterious Masters of Defence and, most importantly, how to distinguish your rapier from your backsword.

Illuminating

Great scope, immaculate in details and preparation, turning the eurocentric white male world view on its big white bearded head.

16th Century Fix

A great host asking the right questions combined with knowledgeable guests and fascinating subject matter make this one of my favourite podcasts!

The nicest niche

I love this podcast!
It is often enough about Tudor related topics (because, if you are honest, that still remains such an amazing period to hear about and you can’t seem to get enough of). But the podcast also surprises you with topics you did not know you wanted to hear more about.
So every episode is something to look forward to and so far has never disappointed.
Please keep going.
