Fantastic details paint an intimate picture of royal life as a Tudor ( )

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley and Hodder & Stoughton in exchange for a fair and honest review. Thank you! 😀

This is a well researched book starting with Henry VII and ends with Elizabeth I. It goes beyond the story of the throne and goes into the details of life at court. The book is colorful and is full of interesting people. I was surprised by how sympathetic I felt towards the Monarchs and some of their royal subjects. Just because you are born into wealth and excess doesn’t mean you will lead a happy, fulfilled life. ( )

Interesting if you are a history lover

Details that normally are not in history book from an author with rare access to original souces. Good information and sad facts. ( )
