'Alison Weir makes Henry VIII's story feel like it has never been told before... This novel will open your eyes and, at times, break your heart. By the end of it, I felt like I had met Henry for the first time' Tracy Borman

Six wives. One King. You know their stories. Now it's time to hear his.

Prince Harry is born the second son, his brother destined to rule. But Arthur's untimely death sees Harry crowned King Henry of England.

As Henry's power and influence extends, so commences a lifelong battle between head and heart, love and duty. The fate of the Tudor dynasty depends on an heir, but his prayers for a son go unanswered.

And the crown weighs heavy on a king with all but his one true desire...

Alison Weir's most ambitious Tudor novel yet reveals the captivating story of a man who was by turns brilliant, romantic, and ruthless: the king who changed England forever.
