Tudor historian Suzannah Lipscomb explores the historiography of Henry VIII’s Queens, offering an engaging and sensitive critique of the varying perspectives that have been applied to their biographies over the centuries since their deaths.

Considering the women’s afterlives, the popularity of this subject amongst the British public and historians alike, the conversation will also provide a chance to reflect on the continued need for feminist re-examinations of this period.
