Claire Ridgway, BA QTS, 1993
Claire studied for her Qualified Teacher Status at Warwick, focusing on Religion and English Literature. She's now a well known historian and published author with 12 books under her belt, plus a popular Tudor history YouTube channel.
Claire puts her interest in the development of Tudor religion down to her studies at Warwick, and she loved her time there.
Claire's first book came out from her website on Anne Boleyn after one of her subscribers suggested she published her most popular articles in book format. It became hugely popular with over 200,000 copies being sold worldwide.
From that point on, Claire has been researching and writing to her ever growing audience. She has also contributed to the recent BBC TV series, The Boleyns: A Scandalous Family. Her most recent book, The Boleyns of Hever Castle, has been a worldwide bestseller.
She is now working on a biography of Anne of Cleves as well as a book focusing on the last months of Catherine Howard's life.
