Product description

Review

"An eye-opening book, an intricate and fascinating story of an elusive man with an impossible job. A brilliant and impressive feat of original research, and necessary reading for anyone fascinated by the story of Henry’s divorce." (Hilary Mantel, author of Wolf Hall)

"Catherine Fletcher rescues from undeserved obscurity a key player in one of history's great events. With impeccable scholarship and a zest for the delightful minutiae of history, Fletcher navigates the intricate byways of Renaissance diplomacy to bring this vital new figure into the story of Henry VIII's "great matter"" (Ross King)

"Fletcher does her subject great credit. She makes no attempt to either embellish or simplify. She simply tells a cracking story well, in plenty of detail with clarity and insight" (Sarah Vine The Times)

Book Description

The inside story of Henry VIII's divorce from Catherine of Aragon.
