Queen Consorts, the Grey Sisters and Lady Cromwell

11/30/2020
When we began planning episode 103, I don't think we imagined that it would be a themed episode.

Elizabeth chats with me about queen consorts (oh the fun!), and Leanda is asked YOUR submitted questions on the Grey sisters. Then I teach you a bit about Elizabeth Seymour (sister to Queen Jane) in A Brief History. And, as a treat to all listeners, everyone...
