Six Tudor Queens: Divorced, Beheaded, Died

‘This six-book series looks likely to become a landmark in historical fiction’ The Times

Available together for the first time, the first three unmissable SIX TUDOR QUEENS novels from the Sunday Times bestselling series by acclaimed author and eminent historian Alison Weir.

The lives of Henry VIII’s queens make for compelling and dramatic tales. They each married the same man, but Katherine, Anne and Jane were as intimately connected to each other as to the King…

Walk in the footsteps of the most infamous queens in history as their extraordinary stories weave together and play out in glittering palaces, birth chambers, gilded prisons – even on the scaffold itself.

Reviews

There is an Anne of Cleves we all think we know - the dumpy fourth wife so uninspiring that Henry VIII couldn't even consummate their marriage. Alison Weir gives us a radically different 'Anna of Kleve' - one who is definitely hiding some secrets under her thick, unbecoming German gown. It takes a writer of Weir's skill to make us believe her fantasia on the established story. But more importantly, it takes a historian of Weir's experience - her familiarity with the sources, and the period detail - to use this compelling fiction to cast a revealing fresh light on the real historical figure.
Sarah Gristwood
In this vivid and beautifully crafted portrayal, Alison Weir transforms Henry VIII's much-maligned fourth wife into a woman of passion, courage and mystery. Utterly gripping and endlessly surprising, this novel captivates from the first page to the last. It is like meeting Anna of Kleve for the very first time. A masterpiece.
Tracy Borman
The latest novel in this evocative chronicle of Henry's wives offers an unusual perspective on the king. His relationship with Anna is surprisingly touching, giving her moments of happiness in an unfulfilled life.
S Mag, Sunday Express
Anna of Kleve comes alive on the page in surprising and mysterious ways that only an author of Weir's superb finesse can achieve. I always thought Anna was the most clever of Henry's discarded wives, but Weir has put quite a twist to her tale that I utterly buy into and applaud.
Susan Ronald
A rounded, interesting portrait of the one who outlived the other wives
