About this title

Synopsis:

In an evocative portrait of Tudor England, the author of The Warrior Queens presents a provocative study of the diverse and complex characters of the six wives of Henry VIII and their impact on their world. 50,000 first printing. $60,000 ad/promo. Tour.

Review:

When we think of the wives of Henry VIII, we tend to think of women who literally lost their heads. But Antonia Fraser opens the door to the political and cultural demands that shaped the destinies of the king and his royal wives. Romance, unfortunately, rarely had anything to do with it. And if you think the modern American media is too tough on political leadership, you oughta READ about the royal court in King Henry's day! That's one family you'd never want to marry into.
