Sexy Tudors!

Hark! A Vagrant by Kate Beaton.
Haha! Now some context for those who are probably a bit confused: Showtime used to have a show called The Tudors. Nominally, it was supposed to be about the reign of Henry VIII, but in actuality, it was nothing more than a faux-historical drama filled with so much nudity and sex, it left you wondering if you weren't watching late night Cinemax by mistake. It was also horribly inaccurate. On the show, Henry was played by a guy named Jonathan Rhys Meyers who many women and quite a few dudes would describe as "sexy". In other words, he was not a 300+ pound redheaded dude. They did keep the festering ulcer on his leg, however. Actually, the funniest part about The Tudors is that all of Henry's ministers were played by young hot dudes in their 20s and 30s, even if they historically weren't young hot dudes. None of them really aged either, even though the show covered Henry's entire reign, although near the end, they did act old.

Oh, and Henry's wives were all played by babes. Basically, Showtime tried to convince us that the Tudor era was full of sexy people.
