Book Overview

Few people in history have had as eventful a matrimonial career as England's King Henry VI. To pursue his romantic ambitions, he broke with Catholicism, created the Church of England, and was not above beheading those wives who fell from favor. Henry dreamed of a son who would succeed him as king, but in the end it was Elizabeth, daughter of the disgraced Anne Boleyn, who inherited the throne and became one of England's greatest monarchs.

In Six Wives, award-winning historian David Starkey draws on newly discovered facts to create a fresh new interpretation of the emotional drama and political intrigue surrounding Henry's six marriages. Starkey expertly recreates the Tudor era -- and the wives of Henry VI -- in this captivating tale.

David Starkey is the Bye Fellow of Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge, and the author of Elizabeth: The Struggle for the Throne. A winner of the W.H. Smith Prize and the Norton Medlicott Medal for Services to History, he lives in London.

. Starkey's is the best study of Henry's wives ever published. -- Evening Standard
