Henry’s Successors – 3 week course – Tuesdays 13.30 – 15.00 03/03/20 until 17/03/20 @ Kesgrave Millennium Jubilee Hall.
Henry VIII struggled throughout his reign to secure his family dynasty, working his way through six wives in his desperate quest for an heir – and a spare. This course will introduce you to the four key historical players who were, ‘Henry’s Successors’. Find out about the decisive but sickly protestant son, a young girl who reigned for just nine days, a bloody and ruthless catholic daughter and wannabe matriarch, and a golden daughter who became far more than any son Henry could have ever wished for! We will tie together primary source material with narrative, questions, speculations and hopefully our own conclusions! This is an ideal follow on from the course ‘Henry VIII’s Wives’ but no previous historical study is necessary.
