The Six Wives Of Henry VIII, Paperback / softback Book

The Six Wives Of Henry VIII Paperback / softback

Part of the WOMEN IN HISTORY series

Paperback / softback


The six wives of Henry VIII- Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anna of Cleves, Katherine Howard and catherine Parr- have become defined in popular sense not so much by their lives but by the the way their lives ended.

But, as Antonia Fraser conclusively proves, they were rich and feisty characters.

They may have been victims of Henry's obsession with a male heir, but they were not willing victims.

On the contrary, they displayed considerable strength and intelligence at a time when their sex supposedly possessed little of either.

Inevitably there was great rivalry between them, and there was jealousy too- the desperate jealousy of the King who discovered himself betrayed.

The story Antonia Fraser tells is romantic and cruel, funny and sad, dramatic and enthralling.
