This week’s episode of Becoming Elizabeth, Lighten our Darkness, had us thinking that Elizabeth might just be pregnant, saw the end of Queen Catherine Parr, and should, Claire feels, have been called Becoming Mary.

Let historian and author Claire Ridgway share with you the history behind this week’s episode and her views on how things played out, as we say goodbye to Catherine Parr, see Elizabeth becoming independent and a new Elizabeth, and watch Mary reacting to the violence aimed at her beloved church, a violence caused by her own half-brother Edward IV's religious policies. Oh, and Claire points out a Tudor character who is sadly missing from the series.

If you love talking Tudor, particularly about Elizabeth I, then you'll want to be a part of Claire's Elizabeth I online event which features 8 experts and lots of Tudor talk.
