The Six Wives of Henry VIII

Portada
Vintage, 2007 - 656 páginas
One of the most powerful monarchs in British history, Henry VIII ruled England in unprecedented splendour.

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.
