Henry VIII ascended to the throne as a lithe, handsome seventeen-year-old and died after an extraordinary thirty-eight year reign, an embittered, obese invalid.
The rest of Europe looked on in amazement as Henry, desperate for a male heir, cast aside the older, but loyal, Catalina of Aragon for a series of marriages with wives who are probably better known for the way their lives ended than they lived - the determined temptress Anne Boleyn, the pious yet tragic Jane Seymour, the outcast Anne of Cleves, the adulterous Catherine Howard and finally the devoted Catherine Parr.
This tale of Henry VIII depicts the sexual intrigue, betrayal and rivalry that existed within his court, in a reign notable for its political and religious upheaval, violence and corruption.
