The suggester said: "It's amazing how much character is conveyed in all of ~deridolls's dolls as they are in many ways so simple in design. The love of and attention to costume is outstanding."
Katherine of Aragon and Henry is just one of the many gorgeous creations in this artist's gallery. ( Suggested by vladimirsangel and Featured by MyntKat )

Oh, I love Tudor drama! :D Are you focusing on these two specifically, or the whole dynasty?

You're welcome :)
Me too, since I saw the film "The other Boleyn Girl", do you know that film? I'm focusing on Henry, Katherine and Anne Boleyn. There is a lot behind these, Elisabeth, the reformation of the Anglican Chruch and everything ...

I didn't read the book... But you should watch the movie, I think it's really good! However I can't use it for my school work, because it has some fiction in it. But actually it was the movie which made me interested in this topic, so it was useful too ^^

I must confess I'm a bit... reticent against the movie, mainly due to the casting. None of the main actors fits even a broader, misty image of how I picture their historical characters. :S

Although I understand one mustn't rely in movies and such for serious works, when History is the topic, I can't help but think how can anyone be certain of... well... anything. :) All we can work from is another person's account of the facts and biased information is bound to seep through, I think.
Oh, to be a tiny fly in Tudor court... :D

Well, I imagine them always like in the movie, since I saw it :shrug: can't change it ^^

That's true :nod: Anyway it's really hard to make a difference between what happened really and what is just a guess.

Where did you get the interest of the Tudor era? Just asking :)

A long, loooong time ago, I found a book about Jane Seymour in my father's books. I tried reading it, but I was still too much of a kid (maybe 8 or so) and the story kind of flew over my head. But I took it as a challenge and, every summer after that, I picked the book up again, trying to make some sense of it. Eventually, not only did I make it through till the end, but I became fascinated with the story of the first 3 wives, especially Katherine. :heart:

Do you admire one particular wife above others?
