Online event

In November 1501, an extravagant ceremony took place that enthralled the nation and altered the course of English history.

In an age when public perceptions of those in power were limited to how government touched everyday life, large and lavish state events were a way in which the common people could judge their leaders’ qualities in a very different light.

The wedding of Katherine of Aragon to Arthur Tudor in November 1501 was the most spectacular royal wedding and public festival of the 15th/16th century. Over two weeks, pageants, banquets, tournaments, new buildings & free wine were presented to the public and layered onto strong political messaging about England's alliance with Spain.

The Tudor regime staked its future on the success of this marriage, but fate very quickly took England’s rulers in a very different direction to the one plotted by Henry VII at this high point of his power.

Join us in looking at the incredible detail of the wedding but also its wider consequences for the Tudor family and for England.

This talk will be presented by Sean Cunningham, Head of Medieval Records.
