Synopsis

The story of Henry VIII and his six wives has passed from history into legend taught in the cradle as a cautionary tale and remembered in adulthood as an object lesson in the dangers of marrying into royalty. The true story behind the legend, however, remains obscure to most people, whose knowledge of the affair begins and ends with the aide memoire Divorced, executed, died, divorce, executed, survived.

David Loades masterly book recounts the whole sorry tale in detail from Henrys first marriage, to his brothers widow, to more or less contented old age in the care of the motherly Catherine Parr.
