(Fairfax, VA) Historical fiction, as it is meant, for contemporary audiences has a storied tradition.  The latter, is true for a large amount of cultures around the world.  The tradition began, as it is documented, like most things; oral and folk traditions.  These traditions, in turn; gave the world epics, novels, plays and other types of fiction that describe history.  Recently, Bonny G.

            The Tudor Era in history, as it is explored through Ms./Mrs. Smith’s The Tudor Chronicles, is an effort that merits recognition.  However and returning to, the concept of historical fiction.  The aforementioned, as a literature genre, is slightly set apart by one important facet.  Additionally, this facet becomes the defining characteristic; the plot takes place in a setting that is located in the past.  Furthermore, some type of outstanding narrative quality, is important.  Through the narrative quality; historical fiction can subsequently be applied to theater, opera, cinema, television, video games or graphic novels.  Continuing with this line of thought, the facet and defining characteristic, then becomes, an essential element.  The essential element is that attention; is paid to the manners, social conditions or other types of details that depict that particular period of time.  In an effort, to bring this element to life, authors often choose to write about historical figures.  A byproduct of this occurrence is that; historical fiction is then often referred to as alternate history, or, historical fantasy. 
            Returning to, the effort that is The Tudor Chronicles, the aforementioned is three full length historical fiction novels.  The first fiction book or novel, The Nymph from Heaven, is about King Henry VIII.  In particular, it is the intriguing story of Mary, his younger sister.  Mary, became the Queen of France.  However, this intriguing story becomes a romance story.  In the romance story, Mary marries a common man.  Additionally, the storyline also juxtaposes the story of Anne Boleyn.  The second fiction book or novel, The Baker’s Daughter (Two Volumes), re-tells the story of King Henry’s daughter; Mary Tudor.  Mary Tudor became known in history as, Bloody Mary.  However, this version of the narrative is told through, Katharine of Aragon.  The third fiction book or novel, In High Places, continues telling the story of Mary.  This Mary is the younger sister of King Henry VIII.  Additionally, she becomes the Queen of Scots.  The story unfolds her life, in relation to, the life of Elizabeth I of England.
