About the Author:

Suzannah is a historian and TV presenter, and a Senior Lecturer in Early Modern History at the New College of the Humanities. She is the author of 1536: The Year That Changed Henry VIII, and A Visitor's Companion to Tudor England.

Review:

'Learn of Henry's last days and the drafting of the will in this beautiful, illuminating - and illuminated - tome' Historical Trips UK. 'As generous with its detail as it is with its beautifully reproduced images ... a must-read for those fascinated by the Tudor world' History Revealed. 'This is a book that deserves to be read. Lipscomb has produced an entirely credible interpretation of a contentious issue. Her sober but still engaging prose thankfully lacks that sweet sentimentality that so often characterises popular histories of the Tudors ... With admirable authority, she provides an interesting allegory about how misplaced trust can undermine the best-laid plans of a powerful king' The Times. 'I was gripped by Suzannah Lipscomb's The King is Dead, an elegantly written forensic examination of Henry VIII's last will and testament' Saul David, Book of the Year in the Evening Standard.

Book Description Head of Zeus, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. On 28 January 1547, the sickly and obese King Henry VIII died at Whitehall. Just hours before his passing, his last will and testament had been read, stamped and sealed. The will confirmed the line of succession as Edward, Mary and Elizabeth; and, following them, the Grey and Suffolk families. It also listed bequests to the king s most trusted councillors and servants.Henry s will is one of the most intriguing and contested documents in British history. Historians have disagreed over its intended meaning, its authenticity and validity, and the circumstances of its creation. As well as examining the background to the drafting of the will and describing Henry s last days, Suzannah Lipscomb offers her own, illuminating interpretation of one of the most significant constitutional documents of the Tudor period. Illustrated with portraits of key figures at Henry s court, including the executors named by Henry in his will, THE KING IS DEAD is a Tudor gift book to cherish, as authoritative as it is beautiful.
