Today I want to give a shout out to one of my favourite websites: On the Tudor Trail. As the title suggests this website is dedicated to all things Tudor. Natalie Grueninger has run On the Tudor Trail for a decade and in that time both Natalie and the website have gone from strength to strength. Natalie is a historian, researcher and an author and this is reflected in the quality and range of information shared on the website. If you are looking for anything, and I do mean anything, related to the Tudors, then this is the site for you.
Natalie has a deep interest in Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII’s second wife, and there are a large number of articles dedicated to Anne’s life. In addition to this Natalie has explored, visited and detailed a huge number of castles and locations that Anne Boleyn visited during her life. This part of the website is my personal favourite as I have been able to learn a great deal of information about a large number of castles, buildings and locations in England. Natalie also provides details on how you can visit these locations.
In addition to this, Natalie is also the co-author of ‘In the Footsteps of Anne Boleyn’ and ‘In the Footsteps of the Six Wives of Henry VIII’. These books are a fascinating walk through history – literally. The books provide details about Anne Boleyn and each of Henry VIII’s wives while detailing the places they lived, visited etc. and how to access those locations.
But wait there’s more! Natalie also hosts a podcast called ‘Talking Tudors’ in which she talks about all things Tudor with a wide range of authors and historians. These interviews are just fascinating and I strongly recommend tunning in, you will always learn something new.
I just love On the Tudor Trail, it’s a brilliant website full of fascinating information about Tudor history, and one of the first I will always recommend.
As well as a website and podcast Natalie also runs a brilliant Facebook page and Twitter so please do check them out!
