I am so glad I am not the only one who does this. I was very familiar with a lot of the tudor paintings before Elizabeth came out, so when they showed her coronation and various dresses I was just floored at their accuracy. So I really appreciate her red dress in your new deck! I am expecting the Tudor DVD anyday now, from Amazon. Again, I have been warned about the inaccuracies, but look forward to the costumes, the tapestries, the whole crazy Tudor world. Funny how such a time period draws one into utter fascination! This deck will be on my favourite list, without a doubt!
