What did a Tudor man wear under his doublet and hose? What was the show-stopping centrepiece at a royal Tudor wedding? Why did everyone, from the king downwards, fear the 'sweating sickness'? The Tudors may have been a comparatively short-lived dynasty, lasting 118 years between 1485 and 1603, but during that time they made a lasting impression. The Little Book of the Tudors explores all aspects of life in the Tudor age from life at court to the day-to-day activities at the teeming taverns and plague-ridden cities of the Tudor kingdom. With a glimpse at the people, palaces and pastimes of the age, some amusing secrets of the Tudor medicine cabinet and closet, and stories from some of the most fabulous, eccentric and opulent entertainments of the age, this 'little book' will delight anyone with an interest in Tudor history.
