Week 5: The Tudors

February 3, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

This week we’ll spend a little more time on Henry VII as King of England and follow up with work on his son, the rather legendary Henry VIII. The Thinking History website has a synopsis of Henry VII and a link to the presentation which we reviewed in class.

We’ll discuss the portrait Hans Holbein painted of Henry VIII and compare it to later portraits. We’ll also watch a video of Henry and his six wives. The video is called, “Henry VIII”. If you wish to review it, or have missed a lesson, it is available on Youtube. Search for it on the title supplied, usually with “Part 1” or “Part 2” after the title.  I have added several extracts in the vodpod below.

Be aware that Youtube does enable viewing of unsavoury comments and provides access to material I would not recommend. I am only suggesting that you watch video material which will support your learning of this section of History.
