    Beyond Prophecy: The Tudor Dragon & the Atreides Hawk

    Denis Villeneuve's Dune Movie delivered. It was glorious, a momentous epic! Already, part 1 gave us a glimpse of this brutal, wondrous and mysterious universe. For one, there is an emphasis on the Atreides flag. Although the background in which is shown is dark, we can clearly make out a hawk on a green and black bacground. This closely resembles the Cadwalldr banner Henry Tudor (Henry VII) that he used when he landed on Milford Haven on August 1485, with the intention to challenge Richard for his crown.

    *SLIGHT SPOILERS AHEAD!*

    The first part of #Dune, deals with the decline of House Atreides. Much like House Lancaster in the wars of the roses, it is game over. Paul is considered the last scion and as a result, the Harkonnens, the Imperial House of Corrino and the Bene Gesserit themselves, are in a race against time to finish him off. It is his mother with all her Bene Gesserit training (played in the Villleneuve's film by Rebecca Ferguson who played Elizabeth Woodville in "The White Queen", a historical fantasy set during the wars of the roses) and her undying devotion for this perfect being she created, that saves him. Without the tenets of her faith, and everything else she taught him, Paul would not have made it that far into the desert nor convinced the Fremen to take (both) him and his mother.

    Historical buffs can see the similarities between this story and that of Margaret Beaufort and her only child, Henry Tudor.

    Unlike Paul though, Henry Tudor was not considered the last scion of Lancaster until all of the members from its royal branch had been wiped out. Henry inherited his right to the throne though his mother who happened to descend from the eldest son of John of Gaunt's third marriage to Kathryn Swynford. Due to his Beaufort offspring born BEFORE his marriage to their mother, they were excluded by their half-brother, the first Lancastrian King, Henry IV (even though they had previously been legitimized by his predecessor, Richard II in 1399). Nevertheless, they remained a menace to the two royal branches of the Plantagenet Dynasty, especially the House of York. It should come to no surprise then, why, after the obliteration of Henry VI and his line, an effort was made to lure the teenager back into England.

    In several interviews, Frank Herbert made a point of how fascinated he was with history and the endless cycle in which it repeats itself. The similar motiffs, and devices that many prophetic leaders and rulers used to climb up the royal ladder. Henry wasn't the first -nor he'd be the last English King- to use the element of prophecy and divine ancestry to gain unlikely allies. The first King from the House of York, Edward IV, also used the element of prophecy and divine providence early on. He used Welsh motiffs, claiming that his Welsh ancestry can be traced back all the way to King Arthur Pendragon himself! Then, at the battle of Mortimer Cross, with the illusion of three sons shown in the sky, his armies were reinvigorated against the enemy, believing that this was God's way of telling them that the Father, Son and Holy Ghost was with them, and that they also represented the three remaining sons of the slain Duke of York.

    Henry did not need any image in the sky to get people to come over to his side. The resentment against Richard III was enough to convince his English allies that he would bring about everything they hoped for. When it came to his Welsh allies, his half Welsh background through his father (Edmund Tudor, Earl of Richmond) and his uncle, Jasper Tudor, Earl of Pembroke, helped. Before Henry was born, his grandfather, father and uncle had gained significant allies in Wales. Edmund and Jasper's titles added more to that. When thirteen-year old Margaret Beaufort was pregnant with Henry, songs were sung about an ancient prophecy that from an ancient Welsh line a royal savior would come who'd rule all the Isles. Despite the English having appropriated the Arthurian myth centuries before, he was still a revered figure there. Unsurprisingly, many English Kings, claimed to be his descendants or their spiritual successors.

    When Henry did the same thing, it was nothing out of the ordinary. But due to his half-Welsh ancestry, more people there believed it. And he also went a step further, using old prophecies associated with him and his family, to claim that he was the savior and king of legend who would bring about a golden age. Henry's chosen banner is today the Welsh flag: the red dragon of Cadwalldr on a field of black and green.

    Atreides and Tudor's use of winged animals can also be seen as a reflection of their respective Houses. While the Atreides flag is a earl animal and the Tudor flag is a fantastical beast, both symbolize how these two houses will take the world (or in the case of Dune, the known universe) by storm.

    It is only me, but Elle Fanning is like the best candidate to play Princess Irulan on Dune Part 2? Like I saw her pictures on The Great season 2 L.A. premiere and it blowed my mind how regal she looked, and since then I was kinda like "hum, she would be a perfect Princess Irulan." Plus, I read an article that showed her as a great actress to play the character.

    Isn't she perfect? 😍🤩

    TV Recommendation: Frank Herbert’s Children of Dune (2003 3-Part Miniseries)

    Fun Note: Stars a very young James McAvoy!

    ** Covers the events of “Dune Messiah” (Episode 1) and most of the novel “Children of Dune” (Episode 2 & 3)

    Summary:

    A dozen years have passed since Paul Muad’Dib Atreides became Emperor of the Universe.
    His Fremen armies have launched jihads across the known Universe, slaughtering over 40 billion people in his name as their Messiah. Paul Muad’Dib’s wife, the Princess Irulan, is little more than a decoration in his house, while his true heart lies with his Fremen concubine Chani Kynes.
    But the mantle of Muad’Dib gets heavier by the day, and Paul is suffering under the weight of a future he cannot fully see, but one he knows will lead to the death of his beloved Chani.
    Paul is becoming a god to his people, and he is losing more of himself each day.
    In order to put an end to the Dune Messiah, the Bene Gesserit conspire with the Tleilaxu peoples, and the Spacing Guild. At their back, Princess Irulan’s elder sister Wensicia plots to overthrow Paul and restore her family line to the throne he stole from Emperor Shaddam IV.
    Princess Irulan has been secretly poisoning Chani Kynes, destroying her ability to produce the daughter Paul Muad’Dib has seen in his future visions. Irulan is sick of being a decoration in Paul’s house, she wants to be the one to give birth to the Atreides heir.
    Paul is also plagued by the image of a young man telling him the time is right, and he must act.
    A force beyond all understanding exists at the edge of Paul’s consciousness, a force even his sister Alia- slipping ever closer to Abomination- cannot begin to figure out. Chani Kynes sets herself on a dangerous Spice diet that will kill her- but will also allow her to conceive the heir Paul Muad’Dib’s empire desperately needs.
    A child capable of stopping the deification of Muad’Dib in its tracks, and bring an end to the fanatic crusades waged in his name. Except there is something Paul’s vision could not foresee: The birth not only of a daughter, but of a son cloaked in Might and hidden even from Paul’s prophetic visions.
    As Paul and Chani’s story comes to its end, new chapters in Dune’s history will begin:
    The Fall of Muad’Dib
    The Abomination of St. Alia
    and the rise of the dreaded God-Emperor Leto Atreides 2(.5)

    Honestly the more about Irulan I learn the more I become an Irulan apologist

    #I fully understand her decisions #if I was in love with a man who loved another woman and couldn’t escape him for twelve fucking years #I think I would legitimately lose my mind #i’m not exaggerating #I mean I would lose. my. fucking. mind. #like seriously #fuck Paul for the way he treats her #Irulan deserved better #at least tell the poor girl what kind of quote-unquote wife she’ll be #BEFORE you quote-unquote marry her #didn’t even crown my girl empress #just cause he made a promise to another girl and loved her instead #fuck you that’s not Irulan’s fault #she didn’t plot against you #she just loved you you fucking dick #shut up maggie #dune#princess irulan#irulan corrino#irulan apologist #I guess that’s me now
