This guidebook takes a fresh perspective on the tale of Henry VIII's six wives, by taking you on a journey through a selection of manors, castles, and palaces that played host to Henry's unforgettable queens.
Explore the Alhambra Palace in Spain, childhood home of Katherine of Aragon; stand in the very room at Acton Court where Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII publicly dined; visit Dusseldorf in Germany, birthplace of Anne of Cleves; and wander the picturesque gardens and panelled rooms of Sizergh Castle in Cumbria, where Katherine Parr spent time in mourning, after the death of her first husband.
Each location is covered by an accessible and informative narrative, which unearths the untold tales and documents the artefacts, as well as providing practical visitor information based on our first-hand experiences of visiting each site.
Accompanied by an extensive range of 130 images (many in colour), including family trees, maps, photographs and sketches, this book brings you closer than ever before to the women behind the legends, as it takes you on your own personal and illuminating journey in the footsteps of the six wives of Henry VIII.
