Reprint. Originally published: London: Jonathan Cape, 2001.

Henry VIII, renowned for his command of power and celebrated for his intellect, presided over one of the most magnificent-and dangerous-courts in Renaissance Europe.

Never before has a detailed, personal biography of this charismatic monarch been set against the cultural, social, and political background of his glittering court.

Now Alison Weir brings to vibrant life the turbulent, complex figure of the King.

Packed with colourful description, meticulous in historical detail, rich in pageantry, intrigue, passion, and luxury, Weir brilliantly renders King Henry VIII, his court, and the fascinating men and women who vied for its pleasures and rewards. 'Alison Weir is one of our best popular historians and one, moreover, with an impressive scholarly pedigree in Tudor history...her latest offering is a very fine book' - Frank McLynn, Independent
