Henry VIII : King and Court, Paperback / softback Book

Henry VIII : King and Court Paperback / softback


'This magnificent biography of Henry VIII is set against the cultural, social and political background of his court - the most spectacular court ever seen in England - and the splendour of his many sumptuous palaces. An entertaining narrative packed with colourful description and a wealth of anecdotal evidence, but a comprehensive analytical study of the development of both monarch and court during a crucial period in English history.

As well as challenging some recent theories, it offers controversial new conclusions based on contemporary evidence that has until now been overlooked.

This is a triumph of historical writing which will appeal equally to the general reader and the serious historian.
