So far The Tudors has done a good job of characterizing Henry VIII and the people around him. The many anachronisms are to be expected, unfortunately. I am very excited to see how far this 显示 goes and what this new season holds.

That being said, there are some characters I am hoping to see very much.

1) Jane Seymour- she's been around for a while, as long as Anne I believe, and it'd be interesting to watch her throughout the tumultous marriage of Henry and Anne.

2) her brothers- they become important figures later...

3) (more of) Jane Parker and George Boleyn- need I say more?

4) William Stafford-...

Anne Seymour, Duchess of Somerset

Born Anne Stanhope (c. 1497) to Sir Edward Stanhope of Sudbury and Elizabeth Bourchier, Anne was through her mother a direct descendant of Thomas of Woodstock, the youngest son of King Edward III of England and his wife, 皇后乐队 Philippa of Hainault. Anne’s father had been married once before, so Anne had two older half-brothers – Richard Stanhope and Sir Michael Stanhope. The latter was selected for the governorship of Hull, was knighted, and made Shelford Priory his residence.

In 1511 Anne came as a maid of honour to 皇后乐队 Catherine, and in 1529 Edward Seymour...

When 你 think of Princess Mary 你 think of Bloody Mary that was the despised 皇后乐队 before Elizabeth. They hated her for her persecuations of protestants, her marriage to Phillip of Spain.

But I think if her background was filled with love, support, and guidance from her parents on how to be a fair and just ruler, i feel that she would have outshined elizabeth as her heir.

Before the "concubine" she was loved, adored heir,her life was easy and her stress level was probably pretty low. But after anne came on the scene that all changed she was torn from her mother and qoverness, her allowance...

When the future Edward VI was born in 1537 there was much rejoicing – for his father King Henry VIII, the birth of a son was especially important. The joy at the birth was of course overshadowed 由 tragedy because it was to lead to the death of the mother of the child, Jane Seymour.

Jane’s pregnancy was announced in February 1537 and she experienced a trouble free pregnancy up to the time thatshe went into labour. The birth of the child however was long and difficult, taking two days and three nights to be delivered. The baby was eventually delivered at around two o’clock on the morning of the 12th October. As this is the eve of the Feast 日 of Edward the Confessor the baby was named after this Saint.

Jane was able to sit and greet guests priorto the christening on the 15th October at Hampton Court but two days later her health had seriously deteriorated and she was 给 the last rites. 由 the 24th of October, Jane was dead.

In 1545, the Duke passed away at Guildford. He died at the ripe old age (for that time period) of 61 years old, after an extremely successful and fulfilling life. In fact, throughout his life and up until his death, Suffolk was known as "a 秒 king," because of his close friendship with Henry VIII and his great influence over the politics of the English monarchy.

After a life of sporting, flirting, and practicing politics at court, the Duke settled nicely into his third and final marriage to Catherine Willoughby - (he had previously been married to Anne Browne and Princess Mary Tudor, the...
