When I was at school, the Tudors were my favourite topic in History lessons. I found them fascinating, larger than life characters. As I got older, I then discovered Blackadder II, which was set in the Elizabethan era, and fell in love with this exaggerated version of the Queen all over again.

But the Tudors aren't fictional characters, they were a real royal family; one you can now rediscover at the National Portrait Gallery. The Real Tudors runs until the 1st March 2015 and presents the most complete collection of portraiture to date. As well as portraits from the gallery itself, you will get to see loaned artwork and personal possessions from each monarch.

A recent research project called Making Art in Tudor Britain will finally help visitors understand how and why the portraits were made. You will also find out about the conservation work undertaken to ensure the portraits are preserved for centuries to come.

Admission is free, but there are also paid for events that you can attend. The next will be a lecture discussing The Tudors as seen in the Nineteenth Century , followed by an in depth analysis of The Phoenix Portrait of Elizabeth I . You can also attend a concert with music of the period.
