Publisher's Summary

If you want to discover the captivating history of the Tudors, then pay attention....

Four captivating manuscripts in one audiobook: 

  • The Tudors: A Captivating Guide to the History of England from Henry VII to Elizabeth I
  • The Wars of the Roses: A Captivating Guide to the English Civil Wars That Brought down the Plantagenet Dynasty and Put the Tudors on the Throne
  • The Six Wives of Henry VIII: A Captivating Guide to Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleves, Catherine Howard, and Katherine Parr
  • Elizabeth I: A Captivating Guide to the Queen of England Who Was the Last of the Five Monarchs of the House of Tudor

Five Tudor monarchs sat on the throne of England and Ireland from 1485 to 1603. The family earned their royal rights through strategic planning and battlefield prowess, and kept them because of intellect, strength, and sheer determination. The Tudors, one of England’s most powerful and famous royal dynasties, knitted together a fragmented and small island nation that became one of the world’s financial, colonial, and technological superpowers. 

There is so much more to the story of these kings and queens than beheadings, political marriages, and the reformation of the church - but those events remain some of the family’s most enthralling moments.

Excellently written by Captivating History

I am not agree with Carmen Suggs (A reviewer, he said this is an average book). In my opinion this is an easy to listen audible, especially for the task of understanding English realm for the Americans. I methodically enjoyed it. I would recommend it.

The authority on Tudor history!

After listening to this, I revealed that events surrounding Guy Fawkes on the 1605 had their origins in Elizabeth's reign. If you want to know more behind this story, and others.

Tudor life from royalty to commoner.

The contents of the book are comprehensive, nothing happened in isolation. I especially like the long descriptions presented by the author.

Tudor story and the culture.

A brilliantly structured history of the Tudors. I received this book some days back and started listening to that immediately. The descriptions are great and attractive for history lovers.

Mechanical narration

I won't be able to listen to this mechanical chipmunk for 510 minutes, let alone 10 hours.

Good Book.

Easy to read and pleasurable, very well documented and tempting to know further about the history of England and Scotland. The style of writing was fluid and made for enjoyable reading.

Good One

Quit a good med for the Tudor dynasty lovers however, the author offered too many opinions rather than keep himself on a single track. I was hoping a thoroughly historic account.
