🎧 The Howard Women
Latest Podcast Episodes 🎧 • 43m
We tend to associate the word ‘dynasty’ with men. But in sixteenth century England, women played a no less important role in these influential families. Among the most powerful were the Howards, which produced two Queens - Anne Boleyn and Catherine Howard - as well as numerous women who made their own significant contribution to Tudor life.
In this episode of Not Just the Tudors, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb talks to Dr. Nicola Clark. Her research - putting women centre-stage - is leading to a new understanding of the complexity of the early modern dynasty.
The Senior Producer was Elena Guthrie. It was edited and produced by Rob Weinberg.
