“Divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived.”
They are phrases that everybody is familiar with, yet of Henry VIII’s six better halves it's the moment, Anne Boleyn, who's the main enticing of them.
In this primary quantity of Friedmann’s vintage biography, Anne’s meteoric upward thrust is painted onto a broader canvas, exhibiting the way it affected the nice powers of Europe — and England.
She entered Henry VIII’s existence at a time whilst he was once changing into more and more worried for a son, and the thought of getting his first marriage annulled used to be starting to be stronger.
But Anne used to be wise and refused to give up simply to Henry VIII’s infatuation, having no wish to be simply one other mistress: she observed a chance for marriage, and acknowledgement as queen.
Over the years that Henry VIII’s obsession for Anne — and a male inheritor — grew, and because the King’s nice subject got here to dominate the political panorama she and her kinfolk prospered.
Meticulously researched, Friedmann indicates how on the middle of the turbulence that might eventually divide a state was once an comprehensive lady whose intelligence and resolution gained her a king — by means of her personal ideas.
