Summary: An examination behind the public faces of the Tudor monarchs draws on material from their most intimate courtiers to illuminate details about their private worlds, from what they ate and the clothes they wore to how they were treated while sick.
"Acclaimed historian Tracy Borman delves deep behind the public face of the monarchs, showing us what their lives were like beyond the stage of the court. Drawing on the original material from those closest to them--courtiers like the "groom of the stool," a much-coveted position, surprisingly--Borman examines Tudor life in fine detail. What did the monarchs eat? What clothes did they wear, and how were they designed, bought, and cared for? How did they wield power? When sick, how were they treated? What games did they play? How did they practice their faith? And in earthlier moments, who did they love, and how did they give birth to the all-important heirs? Exploring their education, upbringing, sexual lives, and into the kitchens, bathrooms, schoolrooms, and bedrooms of court, [this book] charts the course of the entire dynasty, surfacing new and fascinating insights into these celebrated figures."--From dust jacket.
