Alison Weir

Six Tudor Queens.

The lives of Henry VIII’s wives make for dramatic stories. In her forthcoming series of novels Alison Weir will offer new insights into the real lives of these six queens, based on extensive research and new theories. Alison Weir will evoke the world of a court dominated by the will of an egomaniacal, suggestible king, and the power politics and ruthlessness that were the reality behind its magnificent façade, and relate how Henry’s six queens lived a hair’s breadth away from disaster – and how it frequently overtook them.

Alison Weir is the top-selling female historian in the United Kingdom, and has sold over 2.7 million books worldwide. She has published seventeen history books, including Elizabeth the Queen, The Lady in the Tower and Elizabeth of York, and five historical novels. Her latest biography is The Lost Tudor Princess. Katherine of Aragon: The True Queen, the first in a series of novels about the wives of Henry VIII, was published on 5th May 2016.
