The six wives of Henry VIII - Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anna of Cleves, Katherine Howard and Catherine Parr - have become defined in a popular sense not so much by their lives as by the way these lives ended. But, as Antonia Fraser conclusively proves, they were rich and feisty characters. They may have been victims of Henry's obsession with a male heir, but they were not willing victims. On the contrary, they displayed considerable strength and intelligence at a time when their sex supposedly possessed little of either.… (plus d'informations)

Really great book of royal history. Fraser gives all of the wives of Henry the VIII their due, emphasizing their connections to one another and focusing on their intelligence, passion, and ambition in a time which recognized none of these traits as being useful in women. I think I particularly liked Anne Boleyn—the sexy Mean Girl who “stole” Henry from his first wife and gave birth to one of the most famous female monarchs of all time, Elizabeth I—and Catherine Parr—his last wife only because he died before her and a thrice-widowed heiress who tried her best to be a good stepmother/Queen of England. However I like all of them. Even poor Anne of Cleves, who Henry divorced because he thought she was too ugly. I’ve seen the pictures; I think she was perfectly pretty, Henry, you ancient dead dick.

Excellent book on the wives of Henry VIII - it took me over a year to read as it is what I call "hard reading". What I mean by that is that it alot of it is written in the old English so I had to keep going to the reference to understand. Pictures are lovely and I will cherish this book always. ( )

La storia di Enrico VIII e delle sue sei mogli sembra fatta apposta per affascinare il pubblico: divorzi, tradimenti, esecuzioni, è quasi una soap opera ante-litteram. Il rischio per il biografo però è di romanzare troppo per il gusto del raccontare, o al contrario che in nome del rigore storico privi le vicende del mordente e del fascino che indubbiamente rivestono. La Fraser non cade in nessuna delle due trappole e ci offre un saggio curato nei dettagli senza rinunciare alla piacevolezza dell'esposizione. Il suo intento è donare spessore e profondità a queste donne intrappolate nel mito, immergendole in un contesto realistico e storicamente molto accurato; la forza del libro sta proprio nel non dimenticare mai che ci stiamo occupando di persone vere, con le loro ambizioni e i loro drammi privati aldilà dell'importanza storica che rivestono per i posteri.
Lo stile poi è brillante, a volte sembra quasi di leggere un romanzo vista la vivacità con cui è narrato e l'abbondanza di aneddoti e piccole scene quotidiane che snelliscono la prosa.
Penso sia un libro ideale per chi è appassionato di storia, ma allo stesso tempo è in cerca di un libro scorrevole che sia da leggere e non da "studiare". ( )

Excellent detailed account of each one of the unfortunate females the greatest predatory hedonist of his age took legally to his bed.
None of them deserved Henry as a husband although some of them thought, or were persuaded by ambitious family, at least for awhile, that they wanted to be his Queen.
The author reveals how each was a female person in their own right, capable of intrigue, entertaining & fawning on the most powerful and fear inducing man in England & Wales, however, ultimately none of them could compete with Henry's energetic, self-indulgence & his fears & beliefs for his own & the nation's destiny.
The abiding impression is that Katherine of Aragon & Henry, betrothed in their early teens, were for a time at least the only real married couple in King Henry's riotously wilful, politically corrupt, scandalously louche & lengthy reign. ( )

'Divorced, beheaded, died ... divorced, beheaded, survived ...': you can hear this rhyme, recalling the order of Henry VIII's wives, like an endless respectful susurration on this lips of visitors to the historic places associated with them.
