State Papers Online, Henry VIII's Love Letters, and Anne of Cleves

Good news! The State Papers are now fully online! The only problem, you cannot access them unless you are affiliated with an organization that has access to them. I am currently trying to get the library I work for to get a subscription, but we shall see...Eventually you will be able to get individual access, but until then check with you local library (especially if you live in the UK).

Here's the link for more info!

I can't remember if I posted this or not (and would be surprised if I didn't!) but Virginia and I have finished our latest joint episode of Tudor Talk. In this episode, we are reading all the known letters between Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn.

Listen here!

We are going to record our next episode together some time this week. We will be discussing the chapters on Anne of Cleves from Six Wives by David Starkey. I will post when it is up!

I have a lot of backed up mail in my inbox, including a few Q&A's. I apologize for not getting them up/answering them in a timely manner. I am moving into a new apartment this week, so I am super busy! I promise next week, after the move, I will have a lot more free time to get things up and running smoothly again! Thanks for your patience!

  1. Great having these papers on line for public access. You can get access via a download and password as well and a PDF version or disk version are also available. I have a download and what these people got up to is detailed for the world to see. Excellent.
