Product description

Review

"Alison Weir is one of our best popular historians and one, moreover, with an impressive scholarly pedigree in Tudor history - her latest offering is a very fine book." (Frank McLynn Independent)

"Weir has used colourful, fresh material (much of it from unpublished archives and letters), to recreate early sixteenth-century European life and thought, within which she sets the larger-than-life figure of the king-a compelling, readable account of the life and times of the king who put England firmly on the map of power politics." (Lisa Jardine Literary Review)

"A glittering evocation of the Tudor Court, its splendour as well as its vulgarity - a responsive, rounded portrait." (Daily Telegraph) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From the Inside Flap

"WEIR'S BOOK OUTSHINES ALL PREVIOUS STUDIES OF HENRY. Beautifully written, exhaustive in its research, it is a gem. . . . She succeeds masterfully in making Henry and his six wives . . . come alive for the reader."
"-Philadelphia Inquirer
Henry VIII, renowned for his command of power and celebrated for his intellect, presided over one of the most magnificent-and dangerous-courts in Renaissance Europe. Never before has a detailed, personal biography of this charismatic monarch been set against the cultural, social, and political background of his glittering court. Now Alison Weir, author of the finest royal chronicles of our time, brings to vibrant life the turbulent, complex figure of the King. Packed with colorful description, meticulous in historical detail, rich in pageantry, intrigue, passion, and luxury, Weir brilliantly renders King Henry VIII, his court, and the fascinating men and women who vied for its pleasures and rewards. The result is an absolutely spellbinding read. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
