'This six-book series looks likely to become a landmark in historical fiction' The Times
A GERMAN PRINCESS WITH A GUILTY SECRET.
The King is in love with Anna's portrait, but she has none of the accomplishments he seeks in a new bride.
She prays she will please Henry, for the balance of power in Europe rests on this marriage alliance.
But Anna's past is never far from her thoughts, and the rumours rife at court could be her downfall. Everyone knows the King won't stand for a problem queen.
ANNA OF KLEVE
THE FOURTH OF HENRY'S QUEENS
Acclaimed, bestselling historian Alison Weir draws on new evidence to conjure a startling image of Anna as you've never seen her before. A charming, spirited woman, she was loved by all who knew her - and even, ultimately, by the King who rejected her.
History tells us she was never crowned.
But her story does not end there.
SIX TUDOR QUEENS. SIX NOVELS. SIX YEARS.
