Description
Here the author of Six Wives and Elizabeth offers a radical re-evaluation of Henry VIII himself. Larger than life in every sense, Henry VIII was not born to rule, and in this captivating history, David Starkey follows the promising young prince—a Renaissance man of exceptional musical and athletic talent—as he is thrust into the limelight after the death of his elder brother. His subsequent quest for fame was as obsessive as that of any modern celebrity, and it was his yearning for a male heir that drove him to his most ambitious exercises of power.

"Writing with a mixture of tabloid verve and original scholarship, peppering every page with pungent wit and yet never skimping on the detail ... [Starkey gives us] the best political history of the reign of Henry VIII so far.... An outstanding overture."—Sunday Times (London)
