The Six Wives of Henry VIII
The Six Wives of Henry VIII by Alison Weir
I thought this was a great book! Just by coincidence, PBS ran a two part documentary of Henry's six wives while I was reading it... did anyone else catch the documentary? It was the perfect companion to the book, although I did catch a few discrepancies in the story. For example, in the book Weir maintains that it is likely that Katherine of Aragon was telling the truth about her marriage to Arthur... whereas the narrator on the show seemed to think it more likely she was lying in order to protect Mary's right to the throne.
I tend to believe she was telling the truth too... what do you think?
