The Wives of Henry VIII (original 1992; edition 1993)
Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0394585380, Hardcover)When we think of the wives of Henry VIII, we tend to think of women who literally lost their heads. But Antonia Fraser opens the door to the political and cultural demands that shaped the destinies of the king and his royal wives. Romance, unfortunately, rarely had anything to do with it. And if you think the modern American media is too tough on political leadership, you oughta READ about the royal court in King Henry's day! That's one family you'd never want to marry into.
(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 14:06:35 -0400)
Fraser traces each queen's cultural, familial and political roots. She shows how each was dramatically changed by the King's decision to marry her--yet how each sustained her individuality despite him.
