The Six Wives Of Henry VIII
One of the most powerful monarchs in British history, Henry VIII ruled England in unprecedented splendour. In this remarkable composite biography, Alison Weir brings Henry's six wives vividly to life, revealing each as a distinct and compelling personality in her own right.
Drawing upon the rich fund of documentary material from the Tudor period, The Six Wives of Henry VIII shows us a court where personal needs frequently influenced public events and where a life of gorgeously ritualised pleasure was shot through with ambition, treason and violence.

Review: The Six Wives of Henry VIIIUser Review - Dana Mugavero - Goodreads
Alison Weir knows what she is talking about. That being said, this is a history book. If you are looking for "Wolf Hall" or, even worse, "The Boleyn Inheritance" this is not the book for you. If you are looking to SUBSTANTIATE the facts of these novels, Alison Weir is the author to look to. Read full review
