Book Description

1 May 2013
The beautiful sister of Henry VIII, the spoiled darling of the court, Princess Mary Tudor was married off to the ailing King of France against her will and, after his death, had to fight for the right to marry Henry s favourite companion, Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk. After bearing him four children, Mary Rose died in the full flower of her beauty. Her adored husband soon married the 14-year-old fiancée of their only surviving son, who shortly thereafter died of tuberculosis. Her older daughter, Frances, was the mother of the ill-fated Jane Grey, the Nine Days Queen . Her second daughter, Eleanor, was the grandmother of Fernando, 5th Earl of Derby, intended by Henry VIII to inherit the throne after Elizabeth. The Tudor Rose is the tragic story of Mary Tudor, and the role she and her descendants played in Tudor England.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just a Tudor pretty face! 16 Sep 2013
Format:Hardcover
Jennifer Kewley Draskau writes a wonderful biography on Henry VIII youngest sister. Easy to read, this book fills out the outline of Mary Rose, youngest child of Elizabeth and Henry VII. While most know her as "The White Queen", teenage widow of the French King, that secretly wed Henry's best friend, this book describes her dazzling wit, as well as her iridescent charm. Draskau often uses young Mary's own letters and we get to know this bright, young lady. We watch her grow to be a major arbiter of French fashion, and a darling of the Tudor court. If she lived today, no doubt she'd have a bang up reality show! We get a nice portrait of her older sister Margaret, describing her marital troubles too. The book then goes on to describe her many descendants and their impact on the shape of history. Well done! Hope to see more from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific history! 12 Aug 2013
By Jamie Potlock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Beautifully written and wonderfully researched book. I could not put it down. There are not many books written about the first Mary Tudor. This one sets that bar very high. This is the way history should be done!

5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasure reading of the "Tudor Rose!" 23 Nov 2013
By JGB - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Ahhhhh, what a pleasure it was to delve into the story of the "Tudor Rose!" One does not often get a chance to discover the life of Henry VIII's younger sister, Mary.. This book gives one the true story, not the TV Showime presentation of "The Tudors," Henry's sister Margaret, who was really Mary(the Tudor Rose) and she married the aging King of France, not Portugal as the TV production depicted! In addition, the author explains how the marriage union of Mary and Charles Brandon produced heirs that were in contention for the throne for the next 50 years!
