My obsession with English medieval history started quite a while back.
I was back home on holiday when I walked into the lounge where my dad was watching The Tudors with an encyclopedia on his lap. He was fact checking the series (as you do!) and pointed out that since I have moved to England, I should probably spend some time getting to know the history of the country.
I mean, I was sold straight away – watch a drama TV series and learn history at the same time – ideal. That’s when I found out all about Henry VIII, his six poor wives and the English church reformation.
