Executed Today blog… now killing in the Tudor period!

Ack! I missed posting this ahead of time, so you’ll probably have to scroll down, but the Dec. 1 entry at Executed Today is about Catholic Martyrs in the reign of Elizabeth I. Of course as we all know, there were a lot of people executed in the Tudor period, so keep an eye out for more entries in the future!

  1. Thanks for the link, Lara! My salute to Catholic martyr Edmund Campion (direct link) won’t exactly be the last of 16th century England…

    I must say, there are many roads into interest in this period, and maybe mine is the grisliest. But all the same, you’re a treasure on a trove of a subject. I even like the bits where everyone’s head remains shouldered.

  2. You’re welcome!

    And I think the beheadings, burnings, hangings, etc. are what the Tudors are most famous for (well, that and the clothes) so I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s what brings a fair number of people into the subject. 🙂
