The Grisly Deaths of Kings & Queens

Ep. 54

Did Henry VIII really have syphilis? Who died from a red hot poker up the bum? And which king was taken down by a school of fish?


To learn about the often gruesome ways that our royals have met their doom, Kate gets Betwixt the Sheets with Suzie Edge, TikTok historian and author of ‘Mortal Monarchs: 1000 Years of Royal Deaths’.


*WARNING there are naughty words and gory discussions of death in this episode*


Produced by Charlotte Long and Sophie Gee. Mixed by Thomas Ntinas.
