    Review quote
    "A comprehensive exploration of the myth surrounding her subject" Sunday Times "Gripping" Independent on Sunday "Alison Weir is one of our best popular historians and one, moreover, with an impressive scholarly pedigree in Tudor history" -- Frank McLynn Independent "Weir is particularly good at piecing together historical mysteries, and this penetrating portrait of a much-misunderstood woman set against the riveting background of the Tudor court is a real eye opener" Good Book Guide "Weir states correctly that this book is as much a historiography as it is a biography" -- Sara Read Times Higher Education
