Recently, there has been much interest in both the Tudor era, spanning the late 15th through the 16th centuries, and early Britain, those centuries between the fall of Rome and the invasion of the Normans in 1066. Both of these time periods are exciting and well worth studying for they provide great historical drama.
Our goal in creating this website is to generate interest in an equally fascinating and dramatic period of time. We will explore English and French history beginning with the Norman invasion of 1066, and concluding with the fall of the Angevin Empire in the early 13th century. Although our focus will be on English and French history, we will also welcome articles on other people and events which are significant to this general time period.
Come join us on our journey exploring tangled family relationships, dysfunctional royal families, and the drama and intrigue that naturally blossoms from such fertile story telling ground.
You will find it both entertaining and educational.
