Some brief overview of this book

The tempestuous, bloody, and splendid reign of Henry VIII of England (1509-1547) is one of the most fascinating in all history, not least for his marriage to six extraordinary women. In this accessible work of brilliant scholarship, Alison Weir draws on early biographies, letters, memoirs, account books, and diplomatic reports to bring these women to life. Catherine of Aragon emerges as a staunch though misguided woman of principle; Anne Boleyn, an ambitious adventuress with a penchant for vengeance; Jane Seymour, a strong-minded matriarch in the making; Anne of Cleves, a good-natured and innocent woman naively unaware of the court intrigues that determined her fate; Catherine Howard, an empty-headed wanton; and Catherine Parr, a warm-blooded bluestocking who survived King Henry to marry a fourth time.

Undoubtedly Englands best-known monarch, Henry VIII continues to fascinate readers—owing almost entirely to his celebrated six marriages. Yet the six unique women who wed the tempestuous Tudor king have all but been reduced to a collective historical footnote. In this evocative biography, Henrys intriguing queens take center stage at last. 16 illustrations.
