I am looking for a book and I was hoping someone here could help me. I'm looking for a book that would give detailed information about court life. The various Lords, their duties, the break down of households and how positions were made available. I'm looking for something very detailed and very accurate. I want to understand not only how the goverment broke down but how a royal household broke down for Kings, Queens, Dowager Queens, ect.
I was also looking for a book the gave an overview of all of England during Tudor times. Political and Religious climate, agriculture.
I know these are probably very different books :)
Any help is greatly appreciated
