  1. The Tudor family ruled 1485-1603
    King Henry VII and Queen Elizebirth King Henry was cruel to everyone once Queen Elizabirth died the Tudor family was over there was no more nice everyone was told to stay inside and King Henry was tourturing people everyday lives were lost.

  2. The Tudor family ruled England in between 1485-1603. King Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth were in the Tudors as King Henry VIII became king of England. Soon people understood everything about the Tudors. who they are then more people were allowed to go back to school and other places.

    Poor people did not have successful hospital treatment because they had no money. Some of the treatment can be on science and some can’t be. I think that there’s a link with witchcraft and medicine because they both include herbs. Those days they made they made their medicine out of herbs because there was no antibiotics.

    Poor people ate vegetable because they didn’t have a lot of money to buy stuff other than bread on the other hand rich people had lots of food but Tudors did not eat raw fruit or vegetable because they thought it would cause harm to them. They ate any meat and lots of meat they both had bread nut the rich peoples tasted better.

  3. The Tudor family was ruling England 1485-1603
    Kings and queens were ruthless at that time. They were horrible and cruel at that time. Such as King Henery VIII. When Queen Elizabeth I died the Tudor family came to an end!
    Poor people couldn’t get a proper treatment because they did not have much money. There were no antibiotics or scientists at that time.
    Whichcraft is connected to Tudor medicines because it is believed to use herbs and plants. If you go and have a treatment in Tudor times you would have less chance to survive. The three areas of Tudor life is a hut near a river a house covered with straws or a palace. 75% of a Tudor meal was meat. If you live next to a river you will mostly eat fish. Rich people have white bread with there meal. Poor people would have a kind of whole weat bread with soup served in a clay pot. (That is very healthy)
    In Tudor times there were no pubs so alehouses became popular because water was unsafe to drink because you can get very ill.

  4. ward VI, Somerset and Northumberland
    Henry VIII’s will had made provision for a council of 16 to implement decisions
    on behalf of the young king, by a majority decision. Almost all of the executors were drawn from Henry’s existing Privy Council. However, before Henry’s
    final will was revealed to the rest of the Privy Council, Sir William Paget, chief secretary, drafted a clause giving the regency council ‘full power and authority’ to undertake any action necessary for the government of the realm during Edward’s minority. Controversially, and hotly debated among historians is the ‘unfulfilled gifts clause’, which may have been rewritten or added after Henry’s death to award posthumously any grants made but not legally fulfilled by the King. The distribution of lands (taken from the disgraced Howard family) that followed seems highly suspicious in these circumstances, as Edward Seymour, the Earl of Hertford, and those loyal to him seemed to benefit the most. The news of Henry’s death was kept a secret for three days to enable Hertford to build his position and ensure the Council’s support. On 31 January the Regency Council elected Hertford Protector and governor of Edward’s person. He promptly made himself the Duke of Somerset. Six days later, after promoting his closest men, he overthrew the will: obtaining letters granting him near-sovereign powers as Protector and enabling him to appoint anyone of his choosing to the Council.
