"Brilliantly written and meticulously researched...Alison Weir is adept at bringing to life these historical figures." SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE Henry VIII is perhaps England's most infamous monarch, especially when it comes to matters of the heart. He was married to six distinctly different women, and in this richly detailed and meticulously researched history, these remarkable, often misunderstood queens come to life once again. Their full histories and personalities emerge at last, giving voices to the six extraodinary women who left their distinctive marks on the English throne and thereby changed the course of British history. Undoubtedly England's best-known monarch, Henry VIII continues to fascinate readers--owing almost entirely to his celebrated six marriages. Yet the six unique women who wed the tempestuous Tudor king have all but been reduced to a collective historical footnote. In this evocative biography, Henry's intriguing queens take center stage at last. 16 illustrations.
