Episode: Tudor Power Couple - Edward and Anne Seymour
Today we look at the consummate Tudor power couple - Edward and Anne Seymour, Duke and Duchess of Somerset.

The couple were portrayed in Showtime's "The Tudors" as selfish, greedy and uncompromising. In real life you could say the same...or is there more to the story?
