The Private Lives of the Tudors

Tracy Borman

Saturday 14th October 18:45 - 19:45 | Northwood House

Well-known broadcaster and author, Tracy Borman, joint Chief Curator of Historic Royal Palaces and Chief Executive of the Heritage Education Trust, has written the definitive book about the private lives of the Tudor dynasty. At every stage of their lives, their early wet-nursing, their meals, their ablutions, bowel movements, their rich and elaborate costuming, and above all their fertility, there was someone present to bear witness. The Gentlemen of the Privy Chamber, dressed in black, were the elite entourage that came closest to the royal body. It is the accounts of these eyewitnesses, as well as a rich array of other contemporary sources, that Tracy Borman has examined more closely than ever before to reveal fascinating new insights into the characters we think we know so well.
