Book Tag | Tudor Queens Book Tag

Hey everyone! Welcome or welcome back to my blog!

Today, I will be doing the Tudor Queens book tag! I was tagged to do it by Laura @The Corner of Laura. Thanks Laura, for the tag! You guys, do show her some love, because she has an amazing blog!
It was created by Jess @Jessticulates.

Let’s begin!

Elizabeth of York

Elizabeth of York became the first Tudor queen when she married Henry VII in 1486, a marriage which brought an end to the Wars of the Roses. Even though their match grew into a genuine love match, Henry had to kill Elizabeth’s own uncle, Richard III, at the Battle of Bosworth to become king, so choose a book with a complicated family

I feel like in You Had Me at Hola, both the MCs had sorta complicated families? So, that’s the book I choose.

Uncommon choice, I know.

Katherine of Aragon

Katherine was the first of Henry VIII’s six wives, and when Henry sought to divorce her she fought until the bitter end to remain his queen. It was a battle she ultimately lost. Choose a book you forced yourself to finish even though you weren’t enjoying it

I pick the Hating Game. I did not enjoy it, but I finished it, in the hope that it would get better.

Anne Boleyn

Henry was so enamoured by his second queen that he broke away from Rome and founded his own church just so he could marry her, but when she didn’t give him the son she promised he sent poor Anne to her death. Choose a book you used to love but wouldn’t love as much if you read it again now

Okay, can I just say what Henry did was extremely brutal, and totally not fair? I mean, what the hell, did you even love her?!

For the book I pick- Harry Potter.

Jane Seymour

Queen number three was only queen for a year and a half. She gave Henry the son he longed for, but died days later. Choose a book that was short and sweet

I don’t really see the number of pages in a book, so I am absolutely clueless as to what I should put here.

Anne of Cleves

Henry chose to marry his fourth queen after only seeing a portrait of her. Choose a book you bought/read because of the cover

Not gonna lie, I am not really like Henry much.

Also, I am again answerless here, because I read the synopsis after seeing a cover that attracts me, and only then do I read the book.

Kathryn Howard

Henry’s fifth queen was the youngest of his wives and the least experienced for life at court. When she was accused of adultery, Henry sent her to the block. Choose a book with a forbidden romance

Of course, Henry sent her to the block, despite him himself having six wives. A woman is considered a slut for being with several men, but a man is considered a big man if he is with several women.

I choose American Royals for this one.


Katherine Parr

Katherine has long been remembered as Henry’s sixth wife, but what she should be remembered for is being the first woman to publish an English book in England under her own name. Choose a book about books

Recommended For You is technically a book about books.


Lady Jane Grey

Poor Jane was forced onto the throne to prevent her Catholic cousin, Mary, from taking charge in what had become a Protestant country. Mary brought an end to her reign after only nine days, and poor Jane paid the ultimate price for the position she’d been put in by the men around her when Mary sent her to the block. Choose a book that ended too soon

All books by Karen M. McManus end too soon, I swear!

Mary I

mary i

Commonly know as Bloody Mary, Mary restored England to Catholicism and, during her four year reign, burned over 300 Protestants at the stake. Choose a book you would burn every copy of

I literally wouldn’t burn any book, no matter how much I hate it.

Elizabeth I

elizabeth i

Though Anne Boleyn failed to give Henry a son, the daughter she gave him would rule England for 44 years and bring about what was known as The Golden Age. Choose a book with a royal main character

The Selection has a royal main character, technically Prince Maxon is a main character.

Elizabeth I

elizabeth i

Though Anne Boleyn failed to give Henry a son, the daughter she gave him would rule England for 44 years and bring about what was known as The Golden Age. Choose a book with a royal main character

  2. I have the same opinion about Harry Potter, I used to love them so much, I just don’t like it that much now. And this was such an interesting post, and giving tudor queens a book each is kind of whimsical. But Henry is so unfair, poor Anne Boleyn! Great post!

  3. This is such a fun tag! I love history based book tags even though I usually don’t know most of the people’s names lol. And now I also really want to read Amarican Royals, because forbidden romance?? Yes, yes, yes!!! Loved reading your answers!

  4. Ooooh, this is such a cool tag! 🤩 All that British history I had to memorize for my various literature classes finally seems relevant, so I can’t wait to do this once my thesis is out of the way! 🤗 I do agree with you, though – Henry VIII beheaded a few too many people for my liking… And because of his dumb marriage quarrels, he started a religious conflict that still has repercussions today 🙄 Totally not cool, Henry!


  5. Great answers and I totally agree with you on Henry VIII. He was awful to his wives, his mistresses (yep, he had several mistresses as well) and to many others. If you want to find out more on how awful he was, I’d definitely recommend Oversimplified’s video on his life and reign.

    Recommended for You sounds really interesting. I’ll have to check it out.
