Wives of Henry VIII: Dowries, Dower Land and Jointures (Queens Series)

Tudors Dynasty

In this episode, Andy McMillin joins me to discuss the fascinating topic of the six queens of Henry VIII and their dowries, dower lands, and jointures. We’ll look at the differences between a dowry and dower lands and what exactly was a jointure. Did King Henry’s wives all receive the same lands, manors, and parks? What did their involvement in running their lands look like? We cover so much in this fun episode – I hope you enjoy it!
