9780099523628: The Six Wives Of Henry VIII

. 5.1"x7.8"x1.9"; 1.0 lb; 656 pages. The tempestuous, bloody, and splendid reign of Henry VIII of England (1509-1547) is one of the most fascinating in all history, not least for his marriage to six extraordinary women. In this accessible work of brilliant scholarship, Alison Weir draws on early biographies, letters, memoirs, account books, and diplomatic reports to bring these women to life. Catherine of Aragon emerges as a staunch though misguided woman of principle; Anne Boleyn, an ambitious adventuress with a penchant for vengeance; Jane Seymour, a strong-minded matriarch in the making; Anne of Cleves, a good-natured and innocent woman naively unaware of the court intrigues that determined her fate; Catherine Howard, an empty-headed wanton; and Catherine Parr, a warm-blooded bluestocking who survived King Henry to marry a fourth time.. . .

Product Description:

One of the most powerful monarchs in British history, Henry VIII ruled England in unprecedented splendour. In this remarkable composite biography, Alison Weir brings Henry's six wives vividly to life, revealing each as a distinct and compelling personality in her own right.

Drawing upon the rich fund of documentary material from the Tudor period, The Six Wives of Henry VIII shows us a court where personal needs frequently influenced public events and where a life of gorgeously ritualised pleasure was shot through with ambition, treason and violence.

Review:

"A thrilling and chilling story" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"At last we have the truth about Henry VIII's wives. This book is as reliable and scholarly as it is readable" (A. L. Rowse Evening Standard)

"An entertaining account of Henry VIII's complicated domestic history. It is full of interesting detail... Alison Weir's treatment of this perennially fascinating subject is a beguiling one" (Anne Somerset London Review of Books)
