Six Wives of Henry VIII

Six Wives Of Henry Viii - Paul Rival Over the years I've read so many books about Henry VIII and his six wives so there were few surprises here for me. That has nothing to do with the rating I gave, the fact that I already know so many of the general details.

However, I did notice a few "facts" which I believe other historians would question.

And it was not clear whether some of the quoted comments were taken from official documents. That was a bit problematic for me but I just overlooked it with the attitude that none of the comments were verbatim from authenticated documents secured in the Tower. (Just kidding, folks. We know there are only ghosts in the Tower, no documents.)

But it was an easy read and refreshed my memory about Henry VIII and his six wives.
