First Annual Tudorcon on October 18-20, 2019 in Manheim, PA.

Tudorcon is the brainchild of Heather Teysko of the Renaissance English History Podcast. For three days we will gather in a newly-restored winery adjacent to the grounds of the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire for feasting, learning, and partying like it’s 1509. The goal of Tudorcon is to build friendships with other Tudor history enthusiasts while learning from some of the leading authors, bloggers, and podcasters.

About The Author

My journey into Tudor history began about 10 years ago with the TV show “The Tudors” from Showtime. As I watched the show, I wondered how much of it was really true because the storylines were more dramatic and shocking than any soap opera I had ever seen. I picked up Margaret George’s autobiography of Henry VIII and I was hooked. I’ve since read over 100 books on the Tudor period and I’m currently writing my own book about the Wars of the Roses.
