Review:

The paradox of Henry VIII is brilliantly unravelled by Suzannah Lipscomb as she reveals the multiple nightmares of the King's annus horribilis. --Peter Furtado, former Editor of History Today

Fresh and lively, historically accurate and also entertaining... gives a chatty, original, readable and engaging account of the personal and political transformation of the man, the kingdom and the legend --Lucy Wooding, TLS, 04/09/09

A bold and original attempt to unravel one of the great mysteries of English history: how, when and why Henry VIII changes from a handsome Prince Charming into a fat and loathsome Bluebeard. --David Starkey, author of Henry: Virtuous Prince and Six Wives: The Queens of Henry VIII

Synopsis:

One of the best-known figures of British history, collective memory of Henry VIII presents us with the image of a corpulent, covetous, and cunning king whose appetite for worldly goods met few parallels, whose wives met infamously premature ends, and whose religion was ever political in intent.Moving beyond this caricature, "1536" - focusing on a fulcrum year in the life of the King - reveals a fuller portrait of this complex monarch, detailing the finer shades of humanity that have so long been overlooked. We discover that in "1536" Henry met many failures - physical, personal, and political - and emerged from them a different man: a revolutionary new king who proceeded to transform a nation and reform a religion. A compelling story, the effects of which are still with us today, "1536" illustrates with chilling clarity what a profound difference can be made merely by changing the heart of a king.
