Product description

This is a short, sharp shot of royal revenge. More than four hundred years ago, seven people - five of them women - were beheaded in the Tower of London. Three had been queens of England. The others were found guilty of treason. Why were such important people put to death? Alison Weir's gripping book tells their stories: from the former friend betrayed by a man set on being king, to the young girl killed after just nine days on the throne. Alison Weir is a wonderful storyteller. Through her vivid writing, Alison Weir brings history alive.

Review quote

"Alison Weir is one of our greatest popular historians" Daily Mail "Weir provides immense satisfaction. She writes in a pacy, vivid style, engaging the heart as well as the mind" -- Amanda Foreman Independent "Weir wears her learning lightly and has a pleasant habit of anticipating all the questions of a curious reader" Publishers Weekly
