With Elizabeth and Henry VIII dominant, the Tudor world still captures the popular imagination today.  Yet how did the court change from Henry's ruggedly masculine environment to Elizabeth's feminine world? This book meticulously analyses events from the school room of Edward, through Mary and Philip's reign and right through to the era of  Elizabeth's loving virgin circle.  It charts how the court changed through a series of plots, affairs and religious rollercoasters that sent seismic waves reaching to the heart of the royal family.For readers interested in the early monarchy.

From the Back Cover:

`This is a penetrating and colourful history of the mid-Tudor Court. Loades

has responded to both the revived interest in Edwardian and Marian politics

and the current fascination with the Court to explore and demonstrate the

role of the royal home as a political arena and the heart of government. He

also provides fresh, stimulating and important assessments of Philip,

Elizabeth and other focal figures.'

 - Professor Michael Graves, University of Auckland

With Elizabeth I and Henry VIII dominant, the Tudor world still casts a spell. Yet how did the court change from Henry's male sphere to Elizabeth's feminine court? From the school room of Edward, through Mary and Philip's reign to Elizabeth's loving virgin circle, the court changed through a series of plots, affairs and religious rollercoasters.

Intrigue and Treason pursues the Kings and Queens of sixteenth century through an unprecedented period of upheaval when there was no adult male to take the throne. Through an original study of both the politics and culture of the age, it shows how the monarchy and state adapted to a completely new form of rule: that of women and children.
