The Execution of Katheryn Howard

"The Tudors" execution scene isn't very accurate (though it is sad and moving). I personally think the old "Six Wives of Henry VIII" does one of the best jobs in showing the mental (and physical) state of Henry and poor, young Katheryn. Though it doesn't show her execution, it does give her speech and preparation. What do you think?

What If...Richard III Had Won the Battle of Bosworth?

With the recent discovery of Richard III's remains, I thought it would be fun to play "What if..." What if Richard III hadn't been killed at Bosworth. He hadn't been pulled off his horse and killed by angry soldiers, then paraded, naked, through the camp, only to be hurriedly buried in an ancient priory. What if he had won, and Henry Tudor had been either killed in battle or later executed for treason?

What events do you think would have followed Richard's victory?
