Leanda de Lisle {Pdf kindle} Tudor The Family Story – eBook, Kindle and Epub Read

Fact that he had a genetic deformity likely scoliosis aka a hunchback it adds to the image of him being a monster De Lisle tried to xplain the treachery of being a ruler and how Richard was merely maintaining his dominance as a ruler I wasn t sure if she was giving him a pass if he ordered a hit so to speak but it seem perhaps she was If the princes had been allowed to live they could raise an army as adults against their uncle Call me crazy but I still think Richard was an asshole It s a matter of opinion of course Henry Vlll and his daughter Elizabeth also Dinosaur Dinners executed would be rivals Elizabeth started off beloved by her people and acknowledged them lovingly as her very own children In her later years her popularity waned with the ongoing war and her subjectsnduring financial troubles She cleverly refused to name an heir as was In His Blood expected of a monarch for years knowing that as soon as she did the power plays and plotting against her would be set in motion For someone with little politcal training she showedxemplary cunning While some speculated her refusal to marry was because she was lovelorn for her Master of The Horse Robert Dudley and secret lover her reasons were pragmatic If Elizabeth were to marry she would have less control and plotting to contend with she thought it best to avoid the situation Desert Kings (Deathlands, entirelyEach Tudor player was covered in great detail with much attention given to the human aspects of lives This not only made the book a pleasure to read meaning not too dry it also gave a three dimensional view of this most fascinating time in history A good writer and I ll be checking out her other books A must read for anyone interested in this period or anyone looking for a good introduction There have been an awful lot of books movies and TV shows about the Tudors Their cultural impression is larger than life Events of historic importance certainly occurred during their reigns probably most significantly the Protestant Reformation but it is their colorful antics that make them memorable Even the Plantagenets who preceded them ruling for 331 years in contrast to a mere 118 for the Tudors are much less prominent in public consciousness Somehow the many wild tales of treachery and betrayal that the Plantagenets gave us pale in comparison to the doings of serial groom Henry VIII And really it is Henry VIII who most represents the Tudor dynasty There were four and a half other Tudor monarchs but Henry and to a lesserxtent Elizabeth gets most of the press The recent Showtime television series The Tudors lasted four seasons but despite the plural implied in its name covered just one Tudor HenryThere isn t much that is new here about Henry and Elizabeth but where Leanda de Lisle s contribution to popular Tudor histories stands out is in her treatment of the other lesser known Tudors The story begins An Officer and a Spy earlier withvents that often get just a cursory mention in Tudor books Here we have a discussion of Henry VII s origins the Wars of the Roses and the fall of Richard III De Lisle also addresses the influence of Henry VIII s grandmother Margaret Beaufort and his sisters whose marriages had important repercussions seen much later in English history By including these Exposed (Annika Bengtzon, events in detail there is a historical context for the actions of the Henrys making some of their decisions understandableven if not admirableDe Lisle also includes an analysis of the usurpation of Lady Jane Grey The Nine Day ueen is often little than a footnote in Tudor histories but Jane and her sisters are an area of interest for the author who wrote another book about them *Here she justifies their inclusion by showing how the shakiness of the succession after Edward *she justifies their inclusion by showing how the shakiness of the succession after Edward death may have contributed to some of Mary s and later Elizabeth s paranoia It seems that none of the Tudors could Ooko ever completely avoid anxiety about being oustedLeanda de Lisle s Tudor history is a readable one She avoids getting bogged down in some of the details of dress food and other customs For that type of information Alison Weir is much complete Instead the focus here is on the overarching picture and historical context An interesting book which takes the approach of going back to thearlier characters in the story of the Tudor family starting with Owen Tudor who married the widowed ueen of France after a wild dance leap landed him in her lap The book goes through Naked each of the personnel giving a good insightspecially into the women who usually are background characters such as Margaret Beaufort mother of Henry VII and Margaret Douglas daughter of Henry VIII s Shadow Scale (Seraphina, eldest sister and her second husband the Earl of Angus The part played by such women in the greatvents of the period is Claim The Crown examined as well as the usualmphasis on Henry VIII and Why read another a Tudor book De Lisle takes on the family history from Owen Tudor to James I This isn t another Henry and his wives book De Lisle s NF books are not text bookish They are Nerds easy to read and before you know it hours have gone by she brought many new things to my attention proof Margaret Beaufort wasn t thevil step mother Henry VIII wanted 16 xecutors in charge of Edward was Mary Ueen Of Scots Raped ueen of Scots raped consider myself very informed on the Tudors and I thoroughly njoyed this book Great read Leanda de Lisle has a gift for writing historical books When the history is as compelling as that of the Tudors no Bark embellishment is needed and de Lisle tells the story masterfully This book is impeccably researched and de Lisle backs upverything she says with primary sources which she then uses to debunk a lot of popular myths and misconceptions that have sprung up around the TudorsThe great thing about this book is its broad scope and de Lisle manages to weave a coherent story of five generations here spanning two centuries of English history Context is verything and the whole family saga makes a

"lot sense in "
sense in way de Lisle has presented it Sure we ve heard this all before Henry VIII s wives and his kids messing with ach other but as part of the larger story it becomes fascinating all over again She also makes it accessible with gentle reminders of who is who when needed but trusting that the reader will keep upIf I had to nitpick I would say de Lisle skips over much of Margaret Tudor s fascinating later history navigating Scottish politics and that she should have addressed Margaret Pole s claim to the throne at some point because scarcely a chapter goes by without mention of a Rs a family dominated by remarkable women doing verything possible to secure its future; shows why the princes in the Tower had to vanish; and reexamines the bloodiness of Mary’s reign Elizabeth’s fraught relationships with her cousins and the true significance of previously overlooked figures Throughout the Tudor story Leanda de Lisle mphasizes the supreme importance of achieving peace and stability in a violent and uncertain world and of protecting and securing the bloodline Tudor is bristling with religious and political intrigue but at heart is a thrilling story of one family’s determined and flamboyant ambiti. ,

Leanda de Lisle ¸ 2 Summary

,
In her look at the Tudor Dynasty Ms De Lisle has delivered a very reader friendly book Starting with the Owen Tudor Henry VII s grandfather and who gave the dynasty its name the author looks at the family that ruled England from 1485 thru the death of Elizabeth I in 1603 In telling their story Ms De Lisle states to understand the Tudors one must understand how they saw themselvesThis is not your standard history The author just doesn t look at the politics surrounding the family but attempts to Cannibal explain how the politics affected the various members of the family Starting with Owen Tudora commoner and his very fortuitous marriage to a ueen Henry V s widow Katherine de Valois the author gives the reader a peak at the interworking s of the family In telling the story of Owen and Katherine Ms De Lisle recounts the various stories of how they met and how their marriage was received by the ruling council To say the Regents were not impressed is an understatement but other than banning them from court the Council decided not do anything about it until Henry VI came of age and let him deal with it view spoiler Which he did bynobling Owen and his sons with Katherine hide spoiler For us Tudorphiles there really isn t anything we don t already know about one of history s most dramatic families So what s the point of reading another book on the Tudor dynasty Perhaps this can be answered by Leanda de Lisle in Tudor The Family Story Lisle s version of vents in Tudor stands out instantly as the tone presented to the reader is not simply that of a recollection of Tudor monarchy life but the basics and underlying psychosis of the family Lisle begins the history backtracking to Owen Tudor and his fall into royalty Although nothing new is learned by the xpert reader the family history will be understood in a new light Lisle reveals the Tudors in a smooth way in which their motions and actions throughout the decades make clear sense Thus although the story isn t new the fresh perception is Lisle s text is heavily researched and accurate skipping the biases and speculation which are abundant ven in the works of renowned historians The pace is Alter Ego exciting and has a steady ratio of almost fictional narrative to that of an academic piece However at times Lisle goes off on the flowery descriptions andither grazes or rushes too uickly on the historical vents I suspect that she could produce a solid HF novelA notable characteristic of Tudor is the breath of life Lisle gives to some figures who are often ignored such as Mary and Margaret Tudor the sisters of Henry VIII and Margaret Douglas Plus the chronology is solid and all major points are highlighted without jumping back and forth which could confuse new readers Lisle seamlessly interweaves the text with descriptions of veryday lifeculture which instead of feeling like tangents clearly sets the stage for Tudor lie and again makes Uncommon Wisdom everything clear and understandable Tudor is also filled with anticipation withven the seasoned Tudorphile wanting to know what happens Unseen City even though he or she already knows On the negativend Lisle has the habit of mentioning a thought or idea which is contrary to popular belief but doesn t laborate or offer clear sources I would welcome new angles but need details Also slightly annoying is Lisle maintaining the trend of uoting Shakespeare within her historic text Shakespeare was NOT a historian and his plays were just that plays Not sure why so many authors insist on this The second half of Tudor has of a detective focus with Lisle debunking some much talked about Tudor myths The only issue with this is a lack of descriptionargument and notes with holes in the connection I had many You got lack of descriptionargument and notes with holes in the connection I had many You got from that moments Despite this Lisle also displayed the strength of not following stereotypes in Tudor Mary isn t vilified Elizabeth isn t glorified tc Instead Lisle simply sees the strengths and weaknesses of God Is in the Crowd each figureheadThe conclusion of Tudor isxceptionally strong wrapping up Elizabeth s reign but again not overly romanticizing her flowing into a memorable well rounded Epilogue in which Lisle truly brings home the Tudor message in a way not many history books have Lisle doesn t just stop
"there as she "
as she discusses some Tudor myths in the Appendices For those readers who Attracting Songbirds to Your Backyard enjoy notes Lisle offers pages worth while also serving up color plates and genealogical trees Even though one may notxperience new information on the pages of Tudor the presentation is The Matriarchs (The Family entirely new Versus a straightforward look at Tudor history Lisle opens up the personal view of the Tudors and how THEY viewed themselves whichxplains their actions better then a simple look at their political actions Lisle successfully treads a middle ground where readers both new and old to the topic will find Notes for the Everlost enjoyment Tudor is well written andxtremely readable with Lisle showing a marked improvement in her writing it is obvious that she has great things in store Although not perfect Tudor is very much recommended for anyone and When I Moan (Vassi and Seri 1: Russian Stepbrother Romance) everyone interested in the topic Note My rating is of a 45 but rounded to 4 versus 5 Nothing new in this one but an interesting andntertaining read none the less My only gripe with this one just like most books about the Tudors is the lesser known family members get shoved to the sidelines and barely get a mention Tudor The Family Story begins at the funeral procession of Catherine of Valois in 1437 in order to relate the origins of the Tudor name Catherine and Owen Tudor s relationship is depicted as truly romantic I had uite a chuckle or two as Ms de Lisle showed she has a slightly ribald sense of humor There was music playing and her servants were dancing While Catherine watched Owen performed a leap which span out of control and he fell straight into her lap As an Elizabethan poet asked Who would not judge it fortune s greatest grace Since he must fall to fall in such a place 9 Ms de Lisle No Biggy! explains that The story of how Henry Tudor ieHenry VII survived against the odds and won his throne and his bride againstven greater odds is one of the world s great adventure stories It sounded irresistible and indeed how could one understand the king if you only began his life in Disclaimer Arc read via Netgalley Thank you Netgalley Perseus Books and Public Affairs BooksI can hear you asking the uestion do we really need another book about the Tudors Really Well I don t know about need but I can say this is a very x. # For 'Best Books about the Tudors facts behind the Wolf Hall trilogy' the Times of London recommends Tudor The Family Story Sunday Times top ten Bestseller; BBC History Book of the Year; a Daily Telegraph Book of the Year; a History Today Book of the YearThe Tudors are England’s most notorious royal family But as Leanda de Lisle’s gripping new history reveals they are a family still xtraordinary than the one we thought we knewThe Tudor canon typically starts with the Battle of Bosworth in 1485 before speeding on to Henry VIII and the Reformation But this leaves out the family’s obscure Welsh origins the ordinary Cellent look at the Tudor family If you were going to buy one book about the Tudor dynasty this should be it It s not that I didn t like Meyer s book about the family but de Lisle is just better In part this is because she actually focuses on the family instead of the big two Henry VIII and Elizabeth I who seem to have been the focus since the BBC programs While much of the book does deal with them de Lisle makes sure that the rest of the family gets their time in the spot light She does from the start of the book She actually truly looks at the marriage of Katherine de Valois and Owen Tudor The relationship between not only gets the treatment as in looking at the start of the War of the Roses but actually looks why Katherine would ve married him as well relating some interesting gossip about intimate matters De Lisle conveys to the reader a sense of who these two often passed over dynasty founders In particular she looks at the development of Margaret Beaufort and the impact that she might have had on her son Henry VII who gets far attention paid to him here than in most other general histories And that really is the selling point of this book the look at the players who are Attracting Birds to Your Backyard eclipsed by the wives and rivals ueens When I read this I came away with a far greater understanding of Henry VII instead just simply seeing him as a stringy bastard as he is so often simply drawn The lives of Edward VI and Mary I are seen in greater detail here as well as their impact in terms of the monarchy In fact de Lisle considers the impact of Mary s rule on how Elizabeth determined to govern andven to act the part of ruler in than terms of just religion She also raises the uestion of how Elizabeth s reign would have been seen if she had died Deep Listening early on when she was sick with smallpox This isn t to suggest that de Lisle focus just on the political Her description of battle in particular of Bosworth is uite frankly very gripping It is this style part academic and part almost novelistic in approach that make the book accessible to both long time Tudor fans as well as those who are picking this up due to simply the Showtime series She does not relate gossip for the most part and she does take a closer look at oft held myths or commonly repeated stories Her take on the Princes in the Tower is plausible and her analysis of Richard III s rule fair This is not a blow by blow of the Essex rebellion but a study in how a family gains holds andventually loses power all the while struggling in the political arena It is not the soap opera of naked flesh that the Showtime series presented Warts and all careful study and understanding A close look at figures and issues that get swept aside in the tart s version of the wives It isn t a romantic view and for that it is far ngrossing The appendices are worth reading because De Lisle looks and debunks certain myths While the book does tread on some of the area of her previous work it does not seem as if she is simply repeating the last book The Grey sisters are dealt with as they must be but while doing them the justice they deserve in a study de Lisle does not let them and her knowledge of them overwhelm the work Truly a wonderful study of the Tudors I ve read a good number of books on the Tudors It s my favorite period of historyThis book is xtremely thoroughly reasearched and presents The Works of Saint Augustine events in an unbiased manner This is important because I ve readnough books on the Tudors that have been slightly compromised due to an author s opinion being forced on the reader It s frankly annoying when that happens and De Lisle refrained from making this mistakeShe had a bit of a wry sense of humor which I appreciate Just Unbuttoning the CEO (The Suits Undone enough to make itntertaining not distracting I appreciated her defense of Margaret Beaufort as well the author portrayed her as a wonderfully intelligent resourceful mother who tirelessly worked to secure the safety and legacy of her son Henry often at great peril for her own safety Oddly Beaufort is often recalled as a formidable dour presence not helped by artistic renderings of her in late life but the author made her inspiring and likable Her depiction of Elizabeth Woodville was also particularly poignant The mothers in Tudors history often ndured long separations from their children and dealt with their children s deaths as well Despite the glittering romantic portayals of the Tudors in cinema these grim realities made life literally hang in the balance for these matriarchs The Tudor kings who were judged harshly by modern critics were somewhat defended by
"the author as "
author as Henry VII was basically raised in xile and had be uite careful almost paranoid for his own survival Unfortunately his cautiousness became a bit xaggerated late in his reign his laws became almost Draconian and as a result he was not popular with his kingdom Henry Vlll started out as a jocular athletic and beloved ruler but also suffered the same fate His reign was remembered as being full of bloodshed and terror Constant threats of rebellion religious strife and plotting amongst palace insiders created an insidious petri dish of volatilityAlmost anyone familiar with Tudor history has a Strong Opinion About The opinion about the princes in the Tower the sons of Elizabeth Woodville taken by their uncle Richard lll Some feel Richard ordered their murder feeling they presented a threat to his reign Others argue that such a sober pious ruler would never do such a thing Some have speculated that Margaret Beaufort was behind their demise in order to pave the way of her son Henry Vll to the throne What is known is this Richard lll never made mention of the princes after their incarceration in The Tower He never acknowledged their deaths and certainly never held a funeral mass for them He did not want a religious cultmartyrdom developing around the princes which was a possibility if people knew they were murdered After Henry Vll took the throne defeating Richard lll at Bosworth he maintained the secrecy surrounding the princes for much the same reason Although bones were discovered many years later buried at the foot of stairs in The Tower and forensic analysis confirms the bones are that of two children approximately the same age as the princes there is still no absolute cetaintly about the fate of the two boys This is such an motionally fraught topic the death of two innocents Unfortunately for Richard his reign will always be besmirched with this black cloud of ignominy And the. An known as Owen Tudor who would fall literally into a ueen’s lap and later her bed It passes by the courage of Margaret Beaufort the pregnant thirteen year old girl who would help found the Tudor dynasty and the childhood and painful Moanas New Friend (Disney Moana) exile of her son the future Henry VII It ignores the fact that the Tudors were shaped by their past those parts they wished to remember and those they wished to forgetBy creating a full family portrait set against the background of this past de Lislenables us to see the Tudor dynasty in its own terms and presents new perspectives and revelations on key figures and vents De Lisle discove.
