Alison Weir

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.

Charles Twain

First written by a Tudor scholar in the 1800's, this classic account of The Wives of Henry VIII tells the story of each queen consort, from the time they first met Henry VIII to their (sometimes) early demise. Descriptions of the appearance of Henry VIII and each of the wives, written by their contemporaries, add color to this already vividly descriptive, fascinating book. The twists and turns of Henry's marriage to Katharine of Arragon, the rise and spectacular fall of the beautiful Ann Boleyn, and the reason for her demise (the affair with Jane Seymour) are all wonderfully told. Readers with an inkling of sympathy for the first three will smile at the vivid account of Henry VIII's eager anticipation at meeting his fourth wife (Anne of Cleves, who had arrived through an arranged marriage), and his consternation at finding her looks to be really quite plain. Anne of Cleves was also apparently less than thrilled with the arrangement, and managed to save her head by graciously agreeing to divorce after only six months. Unfortunately Cromwell and another gentleman who was intimately involved in arranging that marriage, weren't so lucky. Henry VIII's marriage to the young and beautiful Katharine Howard, though incredibly happy in the beginning, didn't last long. In a fit of jealousy, the king sent her to the chopping block after only 16 months. Like Ann Boleyn, she met her fate graciously-even spending hours the night before her execution practicing how best to lay her head on the block! The Wives of Henry VIII also tells the story of the final of Henry's three Katharine's (Katharine Parr), who, being tipped off about the king's violent intentions towards her, narrowly escaped execution by talking her way back into his good graces. All in all, a spectacular tale with details sure to enthrall any student of the House of Tudor.

Why did Henry VIII have so many wives? This great book helps answer that question and tells the reader all about each of the infamous king’s wives. The book is written for children aged between 7 and 11 and as well as being educational, it is a lot of fun as well. Carol Derbyshire is the author of the best selling children’s history books The Tudors for kids and Elizabeth 1 for kids. This book is sure to become another Amazon bestseller. Each of the wives of Henry VIII tell their own story in their own words. Catherine of Aragon tells how she was discarded by the king after twenty years of marriage and how she knew that new lady in waiting was trouble when she first arrived. Anne Boleyn tells how the people of England always hated her and made up lies about the number of fingers on her hand. She tells how Henry didn’t like her bossy ways and was upset that she failed to provide a son like she promised. Jane Seymour writes after giving birth to Prince Edward, but she is weak after developing a fever. She fears for her life and that she will die and leave her son without a mother. Anne of Cleves tells how the king thought she looked like a horse and how this upset her very much. But she also describes how she accepted Henry’s wish for a divorce and managed to get palaces and castles as part of the deal. Silly Katherine Howard writes her story the night before her execution. She tells of her love for pretty gifts and how she tried to be a good wife, even though her husband was fat, old and smelly. Finally Katherine Parr tells how she survived marriage to Henry VIII and then managed to finally wed the man she had always been in love with.
