The Six Wives of Henry VIII

Antonia Fraser

Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anna of Cleves, Katherine Howard and Catherine Parr have all been defined in history by who they married and more importantly, how they died.

Antonia Fraser sets out to tell their full, rich, fiery and important stories. These multi-faceted women lived full, interesting and noble lives that were so much more than the man they were married to.
