1. In the 70's and Early 80's I read books about the Tudors....
I felt that those books had incredible insight into the time I was living under (Carter was Pres at the time) and what I had Lived Under before.

I don't know if this new author on Tudor's has any creds....given it's from Bloomberg...but, what I got out of my Tudor Period reading was that it was an incredible time of turmoil with Church of State (Catholic at that time)clashing with emerging Protestant (more Fundamentalist enterpretations of the Bible) and TRADE...the emerging NEW WORLD... but...most of all the Renaissance which was about forward thinking, arts, science, music and cultural awareness.

Anyway...this is just something I thought was interesting from a Financial Website ...which might mean it's using Tudor Time to Propagandize...but, I loved it because I loved reading "REAL HISTORY about the Tudor Dynasty...and NOT that HBO THING that folks might "Think" is the Tudors..
