What If...You Found a Secret Tudor Room?

Let's picture it. You are walking through Hampton Court Palace. You feel a slight draft and look to your left. There is a small crack of light peeping through the wall. You go to investigate. You find, behind the old paneling, a secret door...

In the room you find an old wooden floor, covered in dust, obviously not walked on for many years. There are old trunks, tapestries, and pieces of furniture. They all look very old...possibly even Tudor. You open a chest and find...

What? What one item from Tudor England would you like to find in that box?
Pin It


  1. A box of Holbien potraits of each wife properly named.

  2. I would like to find old journals from the women of that period - Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort, Anne of Cleves AFTER her divorce,Lady Bryant as she cared for the royal babies, Katherine of Aragon after her first husband's death and she had to wait FOREVER to marry Henry, and maybe Mary Queen of Scots as she plotted Elizabeth I's downfall. SO many tales to tell!

  3. I would love to find some piece of clothing or jewelry owned by Anne Boleyn...something that escaped Henry's wrath after her execution when everything was removed. I guess he didn't want any reminders of his guilt in her demise.
