Hi Andrava,

I agree with you as I've already heard people discussing "The Tudors" and advancing wrong information.  It seems that if it's published in a book or magazine or worse, on TV, then it's gospel -ie- historically correct...

I have had to correct people who have gotten all the "Marys" mixed up.  Years ago, my boss advanced the information at a boardroom meeting that Elizabeth II was descended from 'Bloody Mary'...

Here in Canada, we are coming to the last episode of Season II next week, and so Anne Boleyn is on her way out!!
As far as the series goes, it is pretty good but historically flawed, and the only one I cheered for and now miss is Catherine of Aragon...

Well i was wondering something else....
Why SHOWTIME change this part ...Margaret Tudor married the king of Portogal and then she married Charles Brandon.... this is not true... so why they had changed it?

Hi Irina,

Yes, I also wondered why they changed Margaret's story around and upside down like that.
Margaret Tudor's true story is already pretty interesting and as Eric has said, "They should make a mini-series out of that!!"....
All that turbulent Scotish history and all those husbands and her temper could prove interesting.

I'm positive that there are school teachers watching it and accepting some of it, if not all of it, as gospel.  It brings back memories of my own junior high history class, when I had to argue with my teacher ... he insisted that Henry's sister Mary was Mary, Queen of Scots. *shudder*


Hi Andrava.  Welcome to the forum!

That's terrible about your teacher.  I guess that maybe he was confusing Mary Queen of Scots with her grandmother, Margaret who was also Queen of Scotland.  It's still a howler though!

Hi Larry,

Thank you.... you are maybe right... because actually there is no reason to change such a big detail from history...but  nevertheless they are making it little hard for the new Tudors fans... if you can understand me... Some sort of that Anastasia movie for kids...now if i ask 10 years old boy or girl she/he will say to me "Anastasia survived... she is alive" Understand?

 I am curious if anyone has the Canadian edition of Season 2. I am in the States and Season 1 had very few extras in reference to the program. I found the Canadian edition had more that pertained to the series. I would like to know what Season 2 has in Canada since it has been released already.

Thanks

Azrael

Actually you can find that information on wikkipedia  ;) I think the courtship was longer than the marriage.

I think Anne lost her fasination once King Henry VIII had her bedded. Anne was never tactful enough to keep him long...

Yes i think you are very right... But she wasn't easy... she wanted to show him that she doesn't want to be mistress... and she did it very well

Yes...Anne was a good mistress/girlfriend, but once married she fell into the trap of being a nagging wife.
