Sex, sweeping societal changes, and heads rolling--what's not to love about the Tudors?

Their whole dynasty is shocking and fascinating. While we still have royals today, they are nothing like The Tudors. It's fun escaping to this time whether it's the show or the books.

I follow your blog.

Love it, Love it, Love it! For a historically based drama, its pretty good. The inaccuracies help keep the mystery alive because you don't know if they will follow with what has happened in history or if they will stray. Elizabeth I is one of my favorites royal ladies.I learned some interesting things about Henry VIII while doing a paper in history 2 class. He was an avid musician and composer. He played every kind of insturment available and wrote hundreds of songs including several requia for the organ.

I love opulent stories and Henry Cavill is awesome.

The Tudors is a great series. It's prompted me to look further into English history, which I'm now almost obsessed with. I remember hearing about Henry VIII & his wives when I was younger & was excited to get a chance to be entertained with great acting & sets to learn about him. I just LOVE the Tudors & watch an episode whenever I have the chance.

Diski said...

I SOOOO loved the Tudor....I watched every episode with total excitement….I was disappointed when it ended. I loved how it twist and turn with every scene. You never knew exactly what was going to happen. And of course Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Henry Cavill weren’t hard to look at either. I can’t wait to watch it again and again.

I've never been interested in US history but England's history has always been one that intrigues me. In particular, King Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, and their daughter, Elizabeth I.

Hi! I love the Tudors I start the biginning of it every year in September and finish up before thanksgiving I do this every year! I love the history all my college reports are over Henry VIII or Anne B. I would love to own these!

Causey2 said...

I love the life of Henry VIII. I love how he broke away from the church and had all the wives I love how he rules even tho it was little irrational he still ruled with a firm hand! I would love this I watch them every year around winter every season!

cheflittle15 said...

I loved The Tudors for the drama and intrigue and the huge impact Henry VIII had on European history. After reading _The Autobiography of Henry VIII_ by Mary George, the show was FAR more entertaining! (JRM and Henry Cavill are definitely the icing on the cake!)

I love the Tudors because the wrought a dynasty out of almost nothing and it became one of the most famous (infamous) ones to boot. All while being slightly mad.
Thank you

I love the Tudors because I am fascinated by the Tudor dynasty and the show just taught me so much more about the time period and gave me more insight into the historical figures. I also love the drama, politics, scandal, and power struggle.

the 'Tudors' era was fascinating (if you can get past all the beheadings and burnings)....if you had rank and wealth, you could get away with anything, as long as you didn't go against the king, that is..

Erinn Demskis said...

Why do I love The Tudors? Well, thanks to the magic of cinema, the entire Tudor Dynasty was transformed into something sexy, scintillating, fascinating, and highly addictive. My first exposure to the series was while on a flight from NY to Thailand. I watched the entire first season, and well into the second season. After 23 hours in a plane, most people were eager to disembark, but since I had not yet finished one of the episodes, I was actually disappointed to have to get off the plane.

Immediately upon my return home, I rented every season, checked out as many books as possible on the subject, and found myself in the middle of a love affair with the entire Tudor Dynasty.

Long live The Tudors! (Anyone who doesn't understand must clearly be a heretic.)

All the best,
Erinn Demskis

The Story of King Henry's love and betrayal is still to this day one of the most fascinating love stories of all time. This era in its uniqueness shows what we have forgotten to transpire into our time. Its intriguing to see them gives light to where Queen Elizabeth came from, and how through her fathers reputation, she was too tilted one of the most respected yet feared Queens to ever throne. I am completely taken by this show and its story of passion, heartbreak and power.

krysalbe said...

I've always found that era in history extremely fascinating, and, to be honest, once I realized Henry Cavill was involved, I was completely sold! Thanks for the great contest ;)

Jo said...

I have always been fasinated with the history of the British Kings and Queens. One might even classify it as an obsession. Unlike most films in the past that portrayed the characters more like cardbroad cutouts,the actors, especially Henry and Jonathan, made them realistic and more human,with hopes,dreams and disappointments, they were real people with real emotional conflicts within themselves. They all put the story in a new light.

Carol N Wong said...

Just by looking at the number of books about the Tudors, you can get an idea of their exciting lives. I eventually want to take a trip to see the important landmarks in their lives and feel their history even more!

I love the Tudors because it is my favorite Dynasty in History! Henry VIII acomplished many things and his life was so interesting. along with his wives and his children. he dared to do many things that others would not even speak of. The Tudors was one of the most closely told story of that dynasty i have seen other than the history channel. Not only was Henry's life interesting but how he became king and why and how he chose his wives. This is one of the most wanted things i could ever ask for the complete series and i would love to have them. i enjoy them and watch them year round.
i also follow you at twitter. again please select me please!! @Jcause14

Hi! My wife and I love the tudors. I hoped i could win this for her. She is obsessed with that dynasty. We love them because of their story. He did everything his way without very much guidance from his council or wives. Henry always in a way fought his concious on what is right and what he thinks is right. Also with what he wanted and what he needed. Somehow it came down to what he wanted. Their dynasty is very interesting to us because not only did he bring new things to his country (even tho they were against it more than for it) but he also opened many doors to others as well. Everyone feared him because of his spare of the moment decision to dislike someone at a split second. without cause sometimes. Please choose me i would be the King of our home if i got this for my wife.
