Hi guys. I'm so glad I found this forum. Obviously, I love HF, particularly medieval, Renaissance, and Asian HF. But I read all kinds. Also, I am majorly prejudiced in favor of the House of York. The Tudors can suck it. :D

I'm also endeavoring to write HF. I've got one project on the pre-Raphaelites going, but my main interest is the Crusades. The primary sources for this period, however, make me want to tear out my hair sometimes. I've got a huge Crusades project on standby.

I want to see HF on: Empress Irene, Empress Wu, and John Hancock. I could stand to see less HF on: Elizabeth I and the wives of Henry VIII.

Hi, yes it's true The Tudors have been a bit overdone! Good luck with the Crusades.
