    Ok I'm confused, when it comes to the past and things like Romans, tudors and stuff like that what is the actual difference! The romans they were like a group of people I think. But lets look at the tudors, where they just simply a family that ruled England for 118 years?

    The Tudors were the family. The people are called Elizabethans etc depending on which monarch they lived under.

    Actually pretty fair to be confused. Th Tudors was the family name, but English people living under their influence can also be referred to as Tudors.

    In the same way Victorians lived under Victoria. Make sense?


    For simplicities sake it's far easier to refer to them by the Monarchs first name though to prevent confusion like this

    That makes sense, especially when you put in the examples of the Victorians tanx! Can I ask- at that time was the period known as the Elizabethan period or was it known as the tudor period?

    Tudors were a family who controlled the throne 1485-1603. Henry VII - Elizabeth I were Tudors, and so it's fine to note them as Tudors.
    However, its also common to talk about the "Henrican", "Elizabethan", "Marian" period, which directly relates to which particular monarch is ruling (although I think when you hear "Henrican" it usually just refers to Henry VIII, someone may need to back me up on this though). Another way you could possibily hear it is the "Mid Tudors" for Edward and Mary.

    In comparison, the Romans were originally from Rome, hence why they were called that - like how the British are from Britain.

    To be accurate, "Henrician". Normally used of the reign of Henry VIII, not that of Henry VII.

    I guess that the majority of cases where the term 'the Tudors' is used would be in reference to the royal family whose head was Henry Tudor/Henry VII

    Although she was called Elizabeth Tudor, the times under her were different enough to the rest of the Tudors to warrant the different label, Elizabethan =]

    Well, the executioner's name was Simon Bull, actually. The privy council hurried the execution along without Elizabeth's knowledge (though she had already signed the death warrant).
