The 'Queens in Context: Women in 16th-century Europe' lecture series takes as its inspiration the National Portrait Gallery's exhibition Six Lives: The Stories of Henry VIII’s Queens, which chronicles the representation of the six Queens throughout history and popular culture.

About

This special lecture series places the queens in their wider historical context within the society of 16th-century Europe, and is delivered by historians, academics and authors, giving their insights into a wide variety of related topics. From uncovering the lives of ordinary Tudor women, to shining a light on the powerful individuals connected to the queens, the series offers the chance to engage more deeply with the history of women’s lives and legacies in this fascinating period.
