The Children of Henry VIII | [John Guy]

The Children of Henry VIII

Nothing drove Henry VIII, England's wealthiest and most powerful king, more than producing a legitimate male heir and perpetuating his dynasty. To that end he married six wives, became the subject of the most notorious divorce case of the sixteenth century, and broke with the Pope, all in an age of international competition and warfare, social unrest and growing religious intolerance and discord.

    "Short version of same old story"

    I kept wondering during this what was the point of putting out something so very short with very little new in it. It also has the same name as Weir's book, which is an epic. That does not make it better, but this one does not distinguish itself.
