Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

No clue. She should go for the Hapsburgs, they intermarried enough.

The closest that PG gets to WWI is in Fallen Skies which opens in 1918.

As for the Grey sisters, they may have been mentioned at one time or another in her earlier published Tudor novels (ex. The Queen's Fool would be the right time setting).
Wonder if she'll be willing to write about the Stuarts, picking up with James since she's already written about his mother.

I'm surprised she hasn't run out of Tudors yet.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"

Fallen Skies gets some hate on goodreads (as does Wideacre)
But PG's novel of post WW1 is one of my favourites of hers.

What about Catherine De Valois who married Owen Tudor?

Has anyone ever read Here Be Dragons by Sharon Penman. One of the main characters portrayed is an ancestor of Henry Tudor?

*Bump*
I came across the US edition for The Last Tudor (click to see the cover) on Amazon. It's coming out Aug. 8th.

Here's a little more on Philippa's website: http://www.philippagregory.com/books/the-last-tudor/ with both the UK and US covers.

I saw a special edition of The Last Tudor at Barnes & Noble earlier. It has a few of Lady Jane Grey's letters and related material at the end of the text.
Also, in her author's note, PG wrote this new novel concludes her work on the Tudors and has a new series forthcoming.
