Her knowledge of English history, especially Henry VIII is laughable. She says how pleased Henry was to hear of Luther! Henry VIII was so voilently anti Lutheran that Ann Boleyn had to hide her religious views from him. She also quite wrongly states that Catherine's marriage to Arthur was "real". I don't know if she has personal access to historical documents that no one else has but the marriage was annulled on Catherine's sworn oath that (as Arthur was very young) the marriage had not been consummated.
There are a number of other places where I have had to correct or expand the information for it to make sense.
As the author is so astonishingly inaccurate on European history which I do know about I can't trust what she says about other countries which I know a lot less about.
This is a shame as the reason I bought Story of the WORLD was because my knowledge of history outside Europe and the America's isn't strong.
I would never dream of writing a book on a subject I know so little about- frankly it's dishonest.
