About this book
Highly accessible, punchy narrative history charting the many (mis)fortunes of Henry VIII's six wives. Interest in the subject has recently been rekindled by ITV's major dramatisation starring Ray Winstone as Henry. "An extremely balanced book... absorbing" "The Guardian"
Gives a textured picture of daily life at the Tudor Court from the woman's point of view. This book establishes the interaction of the private and public, and demonstrates how the Queens of Henry VIII were central in determining political policy.
