Six Wives: The Queens of Henry VIII by David Starkey

Six Wives: The Queens of Henry VIII reveals the central role that the queens played in determining political policy and the routines and rituals of daily life and diplomacy for women at the Tudor Court.

From Catherine of Aragon’s failure to produce a male heir, Catherine Howard’s adulteries to Catherine Parr’s shrewd and religiously radical bluestocking, Starkey provides a radical insight to the central role the Queens played in changing the way a nation was governed and how knowingly or not, Henry VIII empowered a group of women to extraordinary heights.
