Question from Conor - Early Tudor relations with the Danish kings

Hello, just wondering what kind of relations did the Tudor court have with the Danish kings if any? More interested about Henry VII or Henry VIII rather than Elizabeth's involvement with King Eric. Were there resident ambassadors representing the Kalmar Union in Tudor England? Thanks

Question from Emilie - Robert Dudley and Lettice Knollys banishments from court after their marriage

Just a quick question - after Ribert Dudley married Lettice Knollys, I understand she was permanently banished from court however I also though Dudley himself was banished for a time I was just wondering if this was true and if so for how long and between what years if at all possible?

Many thanks in advance,
