In 1509, the young Henry VIII renewed his father’s Treaty of Perpetual Peace with Scotland, and yet by 1511 he was already planning an invasion of France, Scotland’s traditional ally. In this talk, based on his book Fatal Rivalry, George Goodwin describes the vibrant Renaissance splendour of the royal courts of Henry VIII’s England and James IV’s Scotland, with their new wealth, innovation and artistic expression. As England and Scotland move towards their biggest ever battle, we meet manoeuvring ministers, cynical foreign allies, contrasting queens in Katherine of Aragon and Margaret Tudor and – above all – the two competing kings.
