Biography & Autobiography. History. Nonfiction. HTML:Fascinating . . . Alison Weir does full justice to the subject.The Philadelphia Inquirer

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 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.

As always, Weir offers a fresh perspective on a period that has spawned many of the most enduring myths in English history,...

I have become such a "Tudor fanatic". That being said, some authors and/or books are better at revealing information than others. Allison Weir provides new insight into the children of Henry VIII that I hadn't read in other books. Her knowledge of the reign is comprehensive.

That being said, unless you are interested in this time period, Henry the VIII and his legacy this book might not be for you. ( )

A detailed, but highly readable account of the births of the 3 recognized heir of the tempestuous King Henry VIII to the Tudor Crown. The book follows Edward, Mary & Elizabeth from their unpredictable infancy through childhood to their various rises and falls, trials and tribulations, and ultimately the possession of Crown of England with some informative regard for each Child/Monarch's impact on the lives of their subjects. The author also includes a thoughtful account of the short-lived claim to the Crown & reign of ill-fated Lady Jane Grey. ( )

Anglický kráľ Henrich VIII. (1491-1547) sa „preslávil“ svojimi šiestimi manželkami a tiež tým, že osamostatnil anglikánsku cirkev od Vatikánu. Autorka zoznámi čitateľa s pohnutými osudmi jeho štyroch následníkov... ( )

In this book, Weir tells us about King Henry VIII successors, beginning with his son Edward, Henry's great-niece Lady Jane Grey, his daughter Mary, and his daughter Elizabeth. This book focuses on the reigns of Edward, Jane, and Mary, and ends as Elizabeth is becoming queen. Weir is trying to show us more about the relationships between them, which I think is why she doesn't continue on to Elizabeth's reign.

I like reading the historical fiction about the Tudors, but reading this nonfiction account actually tells me what really happened; the fictional accounts always leave me wondering what was real and what wasn't. ( )

It's non-fiction, but is much better than her Captive Queen. Also, mine is hardcover, not paperback. ( )
