The Children of Henry VIII by Alison Weir
My Rating: 5 out of 5 Pearls
Publication Date: July 8, 1997
At 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, Catherine of Aragon; the Lady Elizabeth, the daughter of his second wife, Anne Boleyn, and his young great-niece, the Lady Jane Grey. These are the players in a royal drama that ultimate led to Elizabeth’s ascension to the throne–one of the most spectacularly successful reigns in English history.
Must Read! How sisters could turn on each other, with a father, as brutal as Henry the VIII, it’s no wonder they turned out, as driven as they were, to hold on to The Throne of England!
I highly Recommend! Thanks! Enjoy!
