I am new here, and I hope it is ok to join in this discussion?

I guess my favourite Tudor queen is Elizabeth I.

I am also fascinated about the different wives of Henry VIII, as well as the early Tudors such as Owen etc.

Would need to read more on Henry VII thou.

Elizabeth I is definitely my favorite--I am a huge fan of hers!  :)

I also like several of the wives of Henry VIII: Katherine of Aragon (she was a saint to tolerate his behavior!!), I am fascinated by Anne Boleyn, I like Catherine Parr (somehow she reminds me a little of Katherine of Aragon?!), I think Anne of Cleves has been grossly underestimated by history, and I just feel sorry for poor little Catharine Howard. I am not much of a fan of Jane Seymour--I think she was both mousy and devious--not an appealing combination!!  ;D

In spite of a fairly large Scottish ancestry, I have to admit I find Mary Queen of Scots a bore--reading about her generally makes me want to slap her and tell her to behave like a queen, not a lovesick schoolgirl!  :P (Altho I admit she did die with a great deal of courage--I could never have managed that!)

And I feel so sorry for poor little Lady Jane Grey. A totally innocent victim.  :'(

I will have to say (rather predictably, sorry) that Elizabeth I is one of my favorite women of all time, though she definitely had her flaws.

However, Margaret Tudor has always been interesting to me and I love reading about the lesser known Tudors. I'd love to read more on Margaret and Henry VIII's sisters if anyone has any suggestions for books!

And I do love a good book about the wives of Henry VIII.
I always feel bad for Lady Jane Grey and wish she would have had more time to truly develop. And I have to agree with whomever said (sorry I forgot who said it) that Mary Queen of Scots gets annoying.  The more I read about her the more I want to slap her, despite wanting to like her.  Though I guess she didn't have the best childhood, but honestly what royal did?

Mostly I love the Tudors and those associated with them    :D
(also super glad to be back after a 4 year absence...crazy I know)

My favorite would have to be Anne Boleyn. Then after her probably KOA.

Henry Tewdr, the last Prince of Wales to actually come from Wales--and the last King of England to have taken the throne by Right of Conquest.

Had he not taken his grandfather's last name, It would have been the Meredyth Dynasty.
