The Tudors and the preservation of Maidenhead


I was particularly baffled by Friday night’s episode of the Tudors.

In the middle of what had the makings of a fairly Risqué scene King Henry and Anne Boleyn suddenly started to discuss geography and travel

Anne Boleyn seemed strangely determined to preserve Maidenhead and definitely not let Henry anywhere near it. But then claimed she would be happy to let Henry go there once he was her husband.

Henry on the other hand seemed determined to lay siege on Maidenhead regardless.

I know I am no history scholar but I am surprised at the number of references to what, in those days, must have been a very small market town somewhat removed from London and therefore difficult to reach.

Perhaps your other Listener could advise
