    First of the Tudors. Written by Joanna Hickson Review by Tom Graham. It is no surprise that Wars of the Roses novelists are drawn to Jasper Tudor, for while his life story is dominated by a romantic and unwavering loyalty to the Lancastrian cause, at the same time there are enough unknowns for an author to have lots of fun filling them.   First of the Tudors picks up the story begun in The Agincourt Bride and The Tudor novel focuses on Jasper Tudor and his relationship with his brother Henry VI. The narrative is split between two characters – Jasper and Jane, a Welsh relative that Jasper brings into his household to look after his ward, Henry Tudor and whom he eventually falls in love with.

    First of the Tudors (Book): Hickson, Joanna: Jasper Tudor, son of Queen Catherine and her second husband, Owen Tudor, has grown up far from the intrigue of the royal court. But after he and his brother Edmund are summoned to London, their half-brother, King Henry VI, takes a keen interest in their future. Bestowing Earldoms on them both, Henry also gives them the wardship of the young.

Legendary historical novelist Jean Plaidy begins her tales of Henry VIII’s queens with the story of his first wife, the Spanish princess Katharine of Aragon.
