Summary

You can't spell “Tudor dynasty” without getting “nasty”. 

So, you've watched The Tudors, and you've read Wolf Hall, but do you know the real story of Catherine, Anne, Jane, Anne, Katheryn, and Katherine? (Best name for an all-woman post-medieval law firm ever.) 

Love affairs, court scandal, executions - just your average Tuesday in the Tudor court. 

Penned by a lifelong “Henry Head”, The Lazy Historian's Guide to the Wives of Henry VIII combines Jillianne Hamilton's sassy, fun, and snarky storytelling with one of history's most alluring eras. Focusing on the lives of the wives, and less about the dudes around them, The Lazy Historian's Guide to the Wives of Henry VIII gives the six unfortunate queens the biography for which they almost certainly wouldn't have asked.

 PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Great introduction to the Tudors

If you not familiar with Tudor history, then this is your chance! Both entertaining and witty, this book shows that History is far from being a dull subject. Narration is very clear, and all of the topics and 'characters' are introduced separately so you understand who is who.

Good Introduction to the Six Wives

This is an excellent introduction to the story of Henry VIII's six wives. It keeps the reader interested while not being overwhelming to someone who is just starting to learn about this period is history. I read this as an audible book and the author and the reader have an excellent sense of humor. They keep you engaged in the history without getting boring.
