This illustrated volume shows how the Tudor monarchs of Britain engaged with the internationalism of court culture; the tumultuous years of the Reformation; and the emergence of the transatlantic slave trade and English colonialism. Taking a thematic and biographical approach, the book features some of the most famous royal and court figures from the 16th century, from Henry VIII and Catherine de’ Medici to Elizabeth I and Walter Ralegh. Artworks are arranged into the themes of court culture, religion, queenship, conflict, empire, piracy and trade, and translation. The book features texts from a range of voices exploring the historical contexts of the works, new research on the topics and biographical sketches of key individuals whose role in Tudor history has often been overlooked, such as the trumpeter John Blanke.
