In 16th century England, Henry Tudor was a tyrant King, filled with pride and vision. The country was at the mercy of his appetite, whether that be for war, power, or women. The wives who shared his bed were a paradox, with neither power nor safeguard and yet they had the influence to change Henry, and ultimately, the course of English history.

Aubrey Flood’s first offering of Tudor Roses pulls back the veil of a history predominantly written by men and dissects how these women are remembered, and another side of their legacy. With songs by Cher, Crowded House, Nine Inch Nails, Lady Gaga and more, come take a deeper look at the Queens who were victims of the greatest appetite in England.
