あらすじ・解説

The Tudor dynasty died out because there was no heir of Elizabeth I's body to succeed her. Henry VIII, despite his six marriages, had produced no legitimate son who would live into old age. Three of the reigning Tudors (Edward VI, Mary I, and Elizabeth I) died without heirs apparent, the most tragic case being that of Mary Tudor, who went through two recorded cases of phantom pregnancy. If it were not for physical frailty and the lack of reproductive health among the Tudors, the course of history might have been different.

This book concentrates on the medical downfall of the Tudors, examining their gynecological history and medical records.

● Did you know that an archival source suggests that Henry VIII may have suffered from venereal disease or a urinary tract infection?

● It is generally assumed that Katharine of Aragon went through menopause by 1524, but primary sources tell a different tale.

● Did you know that Jane Seymour's coronation in 1537 was postponed and later cancelled because of the plague? She was originally to be crowned on 29 September 1536.

Disappointing

If I didn’t know the title I probably would have liked it fine…. But for over 10 hours I was expecting a deep DEEP dive into, well, the medical downfall of the Tudors.

Catherine Howard is still alive at this point so I’m hoping to come back and revise my review…. But at this point it’s an overview of the dynasty that I can find on the multitude of documentaries and YouTube channels available.

The medical aspects of the story are sorely lacking…. And of the medical information that IS in the book, much of it is about medical issues of the time (e.g. epidemics and beliefs) that could cause the downfall of many families — not just the Tudors.

Plus I would think that if one is interested in a book called “The Medical Downfall of the Tudors,” ONE ALREADY KNOWS about the Wars of the Roses, the six wives, the legal actions against four of said wives, Lady Rochford’s recklessness etc. We don’t need hours of this information in a book about the particular medical issues that affected this particular dynasty.

Robotic voice and very little new info

I usually love this narrator but she reads this in a way that is almost computer-generated, stilted and dry. Made it hard to engage. The book is a pretty basic history of the Tudors with some token medical information. It’s not in-depth or illuminating, unfortunately. Didn’t learn anything about the Tudors that a schoolbook wouldn’t tell you.

Very Informative

Great Narration and highly interesting topic from Henry VIII to Stuart’s good for inquiring minds.
