9780752458526: The Mistresses of Henry VIII

The full story of the "other women" in Henry VIII's life is presented here everyone knows about the six wives, but this thrilling account of love, lust, and betrayal examines the mistresses From an exciting new voice in Tudor history comes the story of Henry's mistresses the six mistresses that historians agree upon, and several more possible women who were involved with Henry. Seventeen-year-old Henry VIII was "a youngling, he cares for nothing but girls and hunting," and over the years, this didn't change much. Henry was considered a demi-god by his subjects, so each woman he chose was someone who had managed to stand out in a crowd of stunning ladies. Looking good was not enough, she had to be extra special to keep the king's interest, and Henry's women were every bit as intriguing as the man himself. The 16th century was a time of profound changes in religion and society across Europe, and some of Henry’s lovers were at the forefront of influencing these events. Here, they are finally rescued from obscurity. A must-read for Tudor and Anne Boleyn fans, this volume also includes a useful chronology of Henry’s marriages, liaisons, and children.
