7 thoughts on “Versailles vs. The Tudors: An Infographic

  1. I know I’m one of a minority but I really did love the majority of the costumes for the Tudors – In particular series two. The jewellery for Anne Boleyn was especially beautiful. Historically accurate it wasn’t, but for lushness and colour it’s definitely among my favourite period tv shows. Versailles is Ok but it lacks the energy and flair I feel The Tudors had.

  2. There are so many things about “The Tudors” that hack me off, so much so that a different one comes to the forefront just about every week; right now, it’s the never-ending litany of mistresses in and out of Henry’s chambers, on full display, with everyone knowing about it — when in real life, Henry was so discreet about his affairs that historians don’t know for sure how MANY mistresses he had, and if he hadn’t given his illegitimate son, Henry Fitzroy, lands and titles, we might not have even had proof he had ANY.

  3. Just being nitpicky here, but the word you want is principal actors. Most of the characters portrayed had very little in the way of principles.

  4. The sad, dark haired and sallow, and dark clothed, Spanish queen scenario… At least Kennedy (Catherine in the Tudors) made me enjoy watching her.
