    and he is still causing trouble today on who and where is body should be re-entered. we have been watching a very good serious called ‘THE WHITE QUEEN”. Not always acurate but good none the less. With him we would not have had Henry VIII on the Throne…

      Well, “he” isn’t causing the trouble. I think others are. “The White Queen” is on TV over here as well and I agree it is good. It’s lack of accuracy comes from the fact that it is based on a series of novels, not history books.

    Interesting time he reigned in. I think he was definitely a victim of speculation. I doubt he killed his nephews. Philippa Gregory’s The White Queen is awesome. Her entire Tudor line and War of the Roses are phenomenally’s written. If 15th and 16th century British history fascinates you, read her stuff.
