    DescriptionThis new biography of Edward VI, the boy king who died at 15 after ruling England for only six years, reveals for the first time his significant personal impact on the history of his country. Jennifer Loach portrays Edward as healthy and vigorous (contrary to previous views), precocious, highly educated, and decisive, and she details the dramatic context in which his reign played out.

    Review text
    The latest addition to the 'Yale English Monarchs' series provides not only a fresh perspective on the six year reign of Edward VI, son of Henry VIII and Jane Seymour, but also offers a re-evaluation of this important but negelected phase in Tudor history. Loach's Edward is not the sickly child of tradition but rather a vigorous lad who showed signs of taking after his father. He clearly had more influence on the actions of the Protector Somerset and the Duke of Northumberland, who successively governed in is name, than has often been imagined. Although brief, Edward's reign was of the utmost significance in following though the reformation of the 1530's, with much of the fabric, ritual and ceremony of the old church being swept away at this time never to return. Loach has done the boy king and the period much service. (Kirkus UK)
