For those of you who don’t know, there is a fantastic community on Instagram known as the #HistoryGirls (sorry guys!). It’s a community of female history bloggers looking at all aspects of history. These are all very talented women so go give them a follow!
The #HistoryGirls hashtag on Instagram was started by blogger Hisdoryan (https://hisdoryan.co.uk/history-girls) and it has really taken off as a great community for like-minded history geeks.
Some of my favourite #HistoryGirls blogs are below:
If you’re a frequent visitor to my blog, you may have noticed some changes over the last few days. I have added two tabs on the menu for ‘Tudors’ and ‘Wars of the Roses’.
Under these I have collated some of the information already on the blog, and will keep adding to it.
On the ‘People Profiles’ sections under Tudors and Wars of the Roses I have collated the ‘Spotlight’ posts which give you can overview of one key character from the period, including portraits, basic information and portrayals in fiction.
I have also added lists of ‘Further Reading’ for Tudors and Wars of the Roses if you want to know more about any of the people and events of the period.
I am also in the process of adding a list of historical fiction for each period, so look out for this over the next few days!
