Tudors or Plantagenets: Which Royal Dynasty Put the Great into Britain? - The Telegraph
“Which dynasty was the greatest for Britain: the Tudors – as portrayed in Wolf Hall – or the Plantagenets?”
What a question! Great Britain didn’t exist until Elizabeth l named James Vl of Scotland (James l of England) her successor. James was also a descendant of the Tudor line through his Grandmother, Margaret Tudor. Margaret was sister to Henry Vlll and the daughter of Henry Vll – the first Tudor king and his Plantagenet wife, Elizabeth of York.
