Tudor Women

Our Tudor Women tour embraces the lives of wives, sisters and courtiers in the turbulent Tudor century. Some of the women we meet on our tour were powerful in their own right. Others held power more discretely. A few were victims of the politics of the age. All have their own stories to tell.

Field of Cloth of Gold

In June of 1520, two Kings, Henry VIII of England and Francis I of France, each with a retinue of 6,000 nobles, courtiers and churchmen, met in such splendour in northern France. Each king trying to match and outdo the other. No expense was spared, tents and pavilions made of so much gold cloth erected to house all the nobles and courtiers, that the event became known as the Field of Cloth of Gold.
