Details

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.

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.

Join international best-selling author and historian, Alison Weir as she introduces her spectacular fourth novel in the Six Tudor Queens series.
