Book Description
Take a look at the wives of Henry VIII: Catherine of Aragon, pious Catholic princess and mother of Mary Tudor; Anne Boleyn, the pretty Lutheran with whom Henry was madly in love; Jane Seymour, whose submissiveness was in such contrast to Anne`s vampish style and who gave Henry his longed-for son; Anne of Cleves, who was declared so plain by the now grossly overweight Henry; Catherine Howard, the "flirty child" whose adulteries made a fool of the ageing king; and Catherine Parr, a shrewd Protestant bluestocking who eventually outlived him. In this study of Henry VIII`s six queens, Starkey draws on the letters, artefacts and documents of the period, concentrating on the rituals of diplomacy, marriage, pregnancy and private religion, to give a richly textured picture of daily life at the Tudor court from the woman`s point of view.
