Tudor England saw 2 of the strongest monarchs ever to sit on the English throne: King Henry VIII and his daughter Queen Elizabeth I. The Tudor dynasty story encompasses some of the most dramatic and unforgettable events in European history. And they remain the most famous and controversial of royal families.

The Theory of Divine Right, was practiced under the Tudor dynasty. The theory of divine right, absolute monarchy entails creation of a single, established church practicing a single ceremonial and teaching a single religious belief system. If this is true, then the Roman Pope has the strongest claim to that position. All Protestants, in varying degrees, take issue with the above. They all challenged the position of the Pope and the role of papal authority within the Church.

In 1603, Queen Elizabeth I, died, the last of the Tudor monarchs. Elizabeth Tudor is considered by many to be the greatest monarch in English history. She ruled alone for nearly 50 years, lending her name to a glorious epoch in world history. She was committed above all else to preserving English peace and stability; her genuine love for her subjects was legendary. And five centuries later, the worldwide love affair with Elizabeth Tudor continues.

The Royal House of Stuart was the ruling royal dynasty of England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland for 111 years, by way of 6 monarchs from 1603 until 1714. The years between 1642 and 1651 were a period which saw several bloody battles known as the English Civil Wars. This led to a period between 1649 and 1660 as the Dissolution of the Monarchy, an 11-year period during which the monarchy was overthrown and leadership of the country was by a de-facto leader Lord Protector, Oliver Cromwell.

Upon the death of the last Tudor monarch Queen Elizabeth I in 1603, who died without an heir, the monarchy was taken over by James VI of Scotland, the son of Mary Queen of Scots. James, was in the eyes of England's Catholics, the legitimate monarch of England. Of the 7 men and women who became Stuart monarchs only one of them, Charles II, was born heir to the throne.

She continued to reign as Queen of Great Britain and Ireland until her death. Anne was plagued by ill health throughout her life. From her thirties onwards, she grew increasingly lame and obese. Despite 17 pregnancies by her husband, Prince George of Denmark, she died without any surviving children and was the last monarch of the House of Stuart.
