Later published by Amberley in 2009 as 'The Six Wives of Henry VIII', David Loades has written a superb political history of the main theme of Henry VIII's reign; his marriages.

Firstly it must be said that it is not a personal history of Henry's wives.

Loades purely focuses on the political side of the marriages; the need for a male heir during his first marriage to Catherine of Aragon, the subsequent break with Rome during the tail end of the first and the second to Anne Boleyn, Anne's fall amid the machinations of Cromwell and the court, the apolitical marriage with Jane Seymour, the need to counter the papal threat with the fourth marriage to Anne of Cleves, the rise of the Howards during the fifth to Katherine Howard and the sixth amid the battle between religious conservatives and evangelicals.

His writing is very concise and relevant, producing a work refreshingly far less than two-hundred pages, while it being very readable and scholarly at the same time.

What comes across is that Loades is not a Henry fan. His lack of admiration drips from every page.

A superb book.

very interesting, though tends to focus a little too much on the politics for my liking. that aside, it's a good read which doesn't ignore the women!

Very concise and easy to understand 21 May 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book for any "Tudorite". It deals thoroughly, yet easily, with Good King Hal and his Katherines, Anne's, and his only beloved Jane. Having read MANY things about King Henry and his love-life, this book was to the point and helped me to appreciate not only Hal's goals, but those of his wives, ministers, and courtiers. What a wonderful addition to any Tudor-fan's bookshelf, not only for useful reference but grand for just regular enjoyable reading and pleasure.

Henry VIII and His Queens 2 Aug. 2005
By Leslie Drainer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have collected many books about Henry Tudor. Although this book reads like a history book, the details behind the reasons for his marrying so many women, the religious upheaval and the political situations of the times makes is a great book.
