Combining History and Literature


I’m delighted to share with you my talk with Talking Tudors! In this latest podcast, I chat with the wonderful Natalie Grueninger about my upcoming book, 'Disability and the Tudors: All The Kings’ Fools', Henry VIII's owning three wheelchairs, inventing a stairlift, Anne Boleyn having a ‘natural fool’ living within her household, and much more. It really was fantastic to share my research on the Tudors and how they viewed and dealt with disability, from the vagrant poor right up to the ‘fools’ of the Court. Apologies in advance for talking too fast, but I couldn’t curb my enthusiasm, and sorry for the occasional microphone feedback.

Get in touch with Phillipa Vincent-Connolly today to discover the upcoming events for the author and historian.
