Format: Paperback
This is a great addition to any Tudor history lover's book collection. This book was extremely well researched and well-written. Each day of the year includes a list of events during all six memorable Tudor monarchs' reigns (Henry VII, Henry VIII, Edward VI, the ill-fated nine-day queen, Jane Grey, Mary I, and Elizabeth I) while also including some of their fellow European kings and queens, namely Catherine de Medici, Charles V, Mary Queen of Scots, and James V of Scotland. Claire includes key dates, events, (and deaths) for all Henry's wives, whatever your favorite wife may be. It's an excellent resource, and as Claire mentions, appropriate for teachers, students, and pretty much anyone looking to learn more about one of the most fascinating and influential times in history. It also serves as a bridge for those interested in the Plantagenets and Stuarts. This book would make a great gift and is highly recommended for almost any age group. Another great addition to the Claire Ridgway Tudor book series!

Claire Ridgway is a natural storyteller. It is clear that her passion for history and its retelling in a contemporary and engaging way is unique. "This Day in Tudor History" is a massive tome full of narrative on events of the Reformation, including the rise of the Church of England, Elizabeth I's Golden Age, and the works of Shakespeare. Ridgway organized her research around the calendar year which makes it easy to find a specific event or person. In addition, the book can be read cover-to-cover and used for everything from competitions to the classroom.

Ridgway's voice sets this apart from any other authoritative work on Tudor history. She retells the stories as if she were sitting across from you at a café. The tone is light, informative, and knowledgeable. Fans of the author know her best from The Anne Boleyn Files and they will find this book indispensable. In addition, readers finding Ridgway through "This Day in Tudor History" will undoubtedly go back and read her other titles.

Just today, I discovered that events surrounding Guy Fawkes on the 5th of November (1605) had their origins in Elizabeth's reign. If you want to know more behind this story, and others, get "This Day in Tudor History" and impress your friends!

This is a great way to stay in touch with the Tudor times and to remember important dates. This can be done daily or just go to the current day if you were too busy and missed a day or two. Very informative.

Lots of interesting information but odd format. Author presents everything that happens on each particular day. So, for example there are several different entries for Jan 1st but it covers the late 1400's to the mid 1500's. It's difficult to remember who was the King on each particular year at times. You would need to know a great deal of English history to be able to enjoy this book as it is presented. Would have much preferred a yearly progression on information. That being said it was a good read once I got used to it and would recommend it to any good student of the times.

I guess I expected a review of the Tudors giving a day aby day account of events. Instead, this is a 365 (366?) day calendar. On each day there may be several events for differing years. I guess it is fun to look up what happened on your birthday, but that fun only lasts for a few days.

I appreciate that a lot of time went into creating this biook but I am not sure of the use for it.

It was an interesting read and I refer to it now and then. Not something to read all at once .

Very tedious reading, but very educational. It has no discernible story line, but reads like a textbook. While I love history of this period, books with some sort of entertainment value are easier reading.

Although the scholarship is evident, the frustrating format prevents that scholarship from being appreciated as it should. The author travels through Tudor history calendar day by calendar day, with every event which happened on a particular month and day -- e.g. June 1st -- being described, year by year, before the author describes every event which occurred on June 2nd, year by year, and follows with the events which happened on the next day, year by year. What should be substance becomes little more than a list. It's a unique approach for a history, but a baffling one since the reader's attempt to gain a sense of historical events in their proper times is constantly frustrated. I love history, and history books, but I gave up on this one.
