Details of the book
Henry VIII

Henry VIII was one of the dominant figures of the sixteenth century. He was popular with the public and charismatic, yet behaved brutally in his private life and brought about England's break with the Catholic Church in order to get himself out of his first marriage. This study provides an insightful and original portrait of this figure.
