Bosworth Field to Bloody Mary: An Encyclopedia of the Early Tudors

Front Cover
Bloomsbury Academic, Dec 30, 2003 - History - 656 pages

This A-to-Z encyclopedia provides students and nonspecialists with concise, accurate, and engaging definitions and descriptions of important people and terms relating to Early Tudor England. Covering the period from 1485 to 1558, the reigns of Henry VII, Henry VIII, Edward VI, and Mary I, the book contains nearly 400 cross-referenced entries. Entries feature key events, movements, groups, treaties, publications, important people, and more. Along with well-known figures of the day, this book includes significant but less familiar individuals, for whom detailed information is elusive. The encyclopedia includes lists of additional readings, maps, genealogical charts, an extensive bibliography, a subject index, a list of Tudor-themed historical novels, a guide to related entries, and an annotated listing of Tudor Web sites.

Illustrated by over 40 drawings and photographs, the encyclopedia also offers numerous useful appendices, including listings of European monarchs, holders of English titles of nobility, holders of major offices of state, sessions and speakers of Parliament, governors of Ireland, major battles and rebellions, 16th-century popes, and bishops of the Early Tudor Church.
