Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0752487558, Paperback)
A unique guidebook to 150 surviving historical sites associated with Henry VIII, his wives, and his mistresses—battlefields, castles, monasteries, and churches
In his hunt for a male heir Henry VIII broke with Rome, instigated the Reformation and the Dissolution of the Monasteries, and acquired six wives successively. Of these, two were executed, a chilling first in English history. From these tumultuous events a surprising number of historic sites linked to the Tudors survive, accessible now through this beautifully illustrated book. The guidebook is arranged by region and covers England and a little of Europe. With directions to each site, along with full details of the Tudor events and personalities linked to them, this guidebook will appeal to all who find visiting an historic site brings life and color to the study of history.
