Gemma Allen

Dr Gemma Allen is lecturer in early modern history at OU, which basically means she loves teaching everything to do with the Tudors and Stuarts!

She has recently published a book on the Cooke sisters, five remarkable but little-known Tudor women, exploring their power behind the scenes at the Elizabethan court. She has also published a collection of the letters of one of the sisters, Lady Anne Bacon, which reveals the thoughts of this strong-minded woman in her own words.

Gemma is a BBC Expert Woman, as she loves conveying her passion for history to broad audiences, something she also hopes to do through her involvement in the Arts Hub Live!
