Henry VIII and his Six Wives : A Guide to Historic Tudor Sites Paperback / softback

Description

A greatly romanticised era of history, the Tudor period kick-started one of the most significant shifts in British culture ever to occur.

When the notorious Henry VIII began his hunt for a male heir it led to momentous changes: the British Crown breaking with Rome, the Reformation and the Dissolution of the Monasteries.

Of the six wives Henry wed successively, two were executed - a chilling first in English history.

From these tumultuous events an incredible number of historic sites linked to the Tudors survive, accessible now through this beautifully illustrated book. Here Peter Bramley has arranged the surviving sites by region, covering England and some of Europe.

With directions to each site, along with full details of the Tudor events and personalities linked to them, this guidebook will bring life and colour to the study of history.
