    • I think there very interesting times personally, but also the Tudors and Elizabeth I are quite popular. I think because Elizabeth I was one of the first woman to rule England by herself. She was quite a powerful feminist figure.Then her father Henry the Eighth is popular because he is one of the few Kings to get divorced several times and kills his queens. Basically with Henry its because the story is scandalous.
