  1. I am so drawn to Henry VIII’s royal court and his wives, who ruled him until he turned on them. The aging sickness, mentally and physically, of an entitled, obsessive ego which disrupted a country, the world, and future history. How different the consequences of this reign may have been if his brother had not dyed as a teen.Thank you for sharing this. A very good review and even though I have read much of Henry, I must contemplate reading this one as well, the historians so conflicted and contradictory in their findings and writings.

  2. Thank you Bowmanauthir fir reading and c omnenting. I too gave read some of Henry 8th though maybe not as much as I came to reading history late. Even so, this intrigues me. I have taken a sample. It is quite expensive, even on Kindle. However, Zi think kniing the palace, castles, houses whete the queens either grew up or resided might be illuminating. Bless.
    Evelyn.
