Praise for 'Henry: Virtuous Prince': 'This book is Starkey's masterpiece. It combines the populist touch with deep insights of scholarship.' John Guy, Sunday Times 'Excellent...the really crucial events in the history of the British Monarchy since the Middle Ages are assessed with authority, wisdom and wit...This is Starkey at his fluent and entertaining best.' Sunday Telegraph 'It is brilliant, beady-eyed history, and every page of it has an intimate fascination...[Starkey's] strength is that he questions everything...his writing is uncluttered and conversational, and he cuts through the back-story...with grace, clarity and wit...accessible and entertaining' Guardian 'Starkey has the mind of an historian but the eye of a court painter.' Peter Ackroyd, The Times
