My main area of research ended up being the later Roman empire, but I started out an English medievalist (this is what happens when your prof leaves your program and you can’t follow her), and still did a minor field in ecclesiastical history, so I’m pretty good with the Tudors. SIX is very accurate in its details. The Holbein portrait, Anne Boleyn and Henry sending notes, Henry threatening to send Catherine of Aragon to a nunnery, and Catherine Parr wanted to marry Thomas Seymour, but was forced to marry Henry. She married him after Henry died, then died in childbirth.
I think it’s a very clever show and I expect it’s even better in person. I have to admit it’s not my kind of music, but is clearly right for the concept.
