I Love Ye, Man

BFFs since the sandbox, King Henry VIII and Sir Charles Brandon had one of history’s first successful bromances. How did they become boys for life and make it last? Let’s take a few tips from their bromantic relationship:


When Henry split from the Broman Catholic Church, SCB tot’s had his back. He supported his bud through the whole Catherine of Aragon fiasco and told him to ditch the b*tch.


When Henry becomes king he takes his buddy Charles along for the ride, making him a Duke and his right hand man.


In season 1 we see SCB break the golden, unspoken rule between any and all bros:

Thou shalt not make a play for thy bro’s wife/sister/mother/ex

Umm helloooo, what happened to bros before thrones?? What seems like it would be a deal breaker ends up working in Charles’ favor when he makes an honest woman out of Princess Margaret, and becomes bro’s-in-law with KH8. But really, who could stay mad at those baby blues?

Check out more mantastic moments from The Tudors!

    You are so right. Violating the cardinal law of bro’s before thrones should be a punishable offense. And I think I’ll make the sacrifice to dish out the sentence 😉

    Charles Brandon married Henry’s sister Princess Mary NOT his other sister Princess Margaret.

    I think they did that because there were too many Marys. Americans are easily confused;)

    I love what Margaret says about Charles. I think it is SO true!!

    “You don’t know the meaning of the word, Charles. You can love, perhaps for a year, a month, a day, even for an hour. And in that hour I do believe you love as well and deeply… as any man. But after that hour, you love not! You love another, and then another. Your love is most generous where it is most hurtful.”

    Donna – That is true he did marry Mary and also Margaret married the King of Scotland not Portugual. The Tudors is not 100% historically correct, but still a fantastic series!!

    It is easy to get confused two Mary Tudors. Only history buffs know better. Now does anyone know who Catherine De Medicci’s daughter in law was?

      Her daughter-in-law was the young Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots. She lived in the French court for years before she married the Dauphin Francis, Cathrine’s oldest son. Conseqyently, she was also the granddaughter of Henry’s sister Margaret who married James IV of Scotland, which mad her cousins with Henry VII children, and it is why her son James VI of Scotland later became James I of England after Elizabeth’s death.

    Exactly Mary, his daughter, married the emperor Phillip of Spain.

    After each episdoe, I’d run to the computer and check Wikipedia for details on the Tudors. Maybe the show isn’t historically accurate but It’s such good entertainment. Love the costumes, the sets, the dialogue, and oh yes, those actors. So good!

    I can hardly wait until sunday, when I once again watch the Tudors. The women was very hot and busty, and the guys were not bad either.

    Yah, um, wikipedia is really the most legite website to go to..try a real website before you believe anything on wiki. It is good, but it is based on people’s opinions/knowledge which we all know can be quite incorrect

    The historical accuracy isn’t much of an issue until history gets in the way. Such as Lady Jane Grey, who becomes queen of England for 9 days after King Edward dies is actually Charles’s granddaughter by his daughter Francis and Jane is born the same year as Edward. If the show goes forward after Henry 8 than they would have to fix this timeline problem. Like I said I don’t know why I care so much.

      It won’t be going forward after Henry VIII, The Tudors is ending after season four.
