True Facts from Tudor England

In The Tudors, everyone is beautiful, charming, fit and well dressed but I am sure you are aware that they probably smelled pretty badly.

Thankfully, Showtime does not offer Smell-O-Vision…yet.

This video is a delightful look at some of the less attractive aspects of Tudor living. It’s animated so hopefully won’t be too upsetting.

    Too funny! Thanks for sharing this video. Love the Tudors, though I wish they would make Henry fat already.

    Yes, it would be more realistic to portray Henry more Holbainesque but this Henry is such eye candy that I don’t know if I want it to be that true to history.

    When he was younger he was supposedly very good looking and in shape. It wasn’t until he got older and his previous injuries started to make it impossible to get any kind of exercise that he became fat. He kept eating the way he always had, but with out the exercise.

    Besides he’s too HOT to make fat!

    Oh definitely – actually, Henry VIII was 6′ 2″ tall and had a 35 inch waist, 42 inch chest. He was really handsome until his forties when a leg wound made exercise difficult, but he was handsome for the majority of his life (supposedly the most handsome man in Europe). (Sorry, I’m a historian, so I get into this stuff!)

    In the series, as henry ages will he wear a fat suit?

    Why wasn’t the actor required to dye his hair red? I though Henry the VIII had red hair.

    Anyway Jonathan R. Myers is just great, not matter what the color of his hair!
