Alison Weir is the author of the Sunday Times bestselling Six Tudor Queens series. Now she returns with an enthralling retelling of the life of one of Britain’s most infamous monarchs – Henry VIII, the king who changed England forever.

A second son, not born to rule, becomes a man, and a king…

In grand royal palaces, Prince Harry grows up dreaming of knights and chivalry – and the golden age of kings that awaits his older brother. But Arthur’s untimely death sees Harry crowned King Henry of England. As his power and influence extends, so commences a lifelong battle between head and heart, love and duty. Henry rules by divine right, yet his prayers for a son go unanswered. The future of his great dynasty depends on an heir. And the crown weighs heavy on a king with all but his one true desire.

Six wives. One King. You know their stories. Now it’s time to hear his.
