Abstract:

With his death in 1547, King Henry VIII left four heirs to the English throne: his only son the nine-year-old Prince Edward; the Lady Mary, the adult daughter of his first wife, Katherine Aragon; the Lady Elizabeth, the teenage daughter of his second wife, Anne Boleyn; and his young great-niece, the Lady Jane Grey. In this riveting account, Alison Weir paints a unique portrait of these extraordinary rulers, examining their intricate relationships to one another and to history. She traces the tumult that followed Henry's death, from the brief intrigue-filled reigns of the boy-king Edward VI and the fragile Lady Jane Grey, to the savagery of "Bloody Mary," and finally the accession of the politically adroit Elizabeth I.
