The Six Wives of Henry VIII

Author(s): Alison Weir


Drawing upon documentary material from the Tudor period, this text reveals each of Henry's wives as a distinct and compelling personality in her own right. It shows a court where personal needs influenced public events, and where ritualised pleasure was shot through with ambition and violence.

1997. A fine, unmarked copy.
