The Children of Henry VIII by Alison Weir

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, Katherine of 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 each other and to history. She traces the tumult that followed Henrys 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.<P>As always, Weir offers a fresh perspective on a period that has spawned many of the most enduring myths in English history, combining the best of the historians and the biographers art.
