    Kindle Unlimited, this one goes decent enough, if you wanted a pair to read back to back or of same kind, with the Marie Antoinette one btw, that's really why I keep a running list, it's helpful for other people to see the full list {minus some of the collections so don't repeat/make longer} but so I can keep up with sections/areas/time periods etcetera, gets confusing, have read every single one of them Explore the Captivating History of the Six Wives of Henry VIII Free History BONUS Inside!

    It always amazes me that I learn something new by reading these histories even when I thought I knew everything about the subject at hand (before I started).  I've read several tomes about Henry Vlll and his six wives but this weaves new information into the Tudor history.  There was even room to discuss Henry's mistresses and the machinations and behind-the-scenes action of the secondary characters in this soap opera.  It is highly readable and I read it in one sitting.

I thought the presentation was balanced and the explanations were lively.  I liked that the author took the time to explain which of the wives took time to include Elizabeth and Mary.  Probably without their intervention,  Henry wouldn't have cared a whit about either child.  He was so obsessed with getting a son that he didn't value the two daughters he did have.  The reader also gets a sense of the difference between each of Henry's wives -- they were certainly different from each other. Something that sets this book apart from others is that this book researched the children thought to be Henry's through his mistresses.  From some of the info presented, it almost seemed that the legitimate kids knew (and helped along) the illegitimate kids.  The discussion on the possible reasons for Henry's infertility was fascinating. I'd like to share one particularly telling statement about Henry, "This forethought (how Henry chose each wife) perhaps shows the emotional side of Henry Vlll that was forever searching for the right woman with whom to make the kind of family his own mother and father had." (p. 94)

    I've read about Henry VIII before and seen various television programs on him but I was still able to learn things I didn't know from this book. Basically, Henry VIII was a brilliant and fairly decent person until after he was injured in a jousting tournament. It's possible, my speculation here, is that he suffered some brain damage and that, not being able to joust or be really physically active any more plus his normal problems as king may have all worked together to change his personality so t I've read about Henry VIII before and seen various television programs on him but I was still able to learn things I didn't know from this book. Basically, Henry VIII was a brilliant and fairly decent person until after he was injured in a jousting tournament. It's possible, my speculation here, is that he suffered some brain damage and that, not being able to joust or be really physically active any more plus his normal problems as king may have all worked together to change his personality so that beheading wives was not utterly unexpected. The book discusses all six of his wives, how they met, what happened during their marriage and how the marriage ended. It also goes into how Henry VIII broke with the Catholic Church, what men were behind the scenes making moves to benefit themselves and how Henry VIII had a tendency to go after ladies-in-waiting, shopping for his next bride. It also covers the moves he made to get rid of the wives he was tired of. It also discusses the infidelity that he practiced so much. It also covers his various mistresses and children that were or might have been born from those relationships. Although Henry VIII was an intelligent man his morals were quite lax. A very interesting but somewhat upsetting book.

    The six wives of Henry VIII in just over 100 pages! I was a bit sceptical to begin with that this would be able to do justice at about 17 pages per wife. We've seen all of the series, the films and worked through the story at school - would there be much more to garner from such a short piece of work covering six people? Surprisingly, the answer was yes. I thought that I was fairly knowledgeable about this part of history above many other areas, however I soon realised that I had more to learn.

This book gathers fact upon fact about a short period of time in history that still seems to fascinate people of all ages today. The sections are all easy to follow, but the names of prominent people soon mount up and are easy to forget when they have no character to go with them. Still, this is a factual book and not an historical novel. I enjoyed reading it and will re-read it a few more times yet. My favourite part was right at the end where there was a section highlighting the recognised and non-recognised offspring belonging to Henry. No stone appears to have been left unturned.

    Good but not great! A fairly quick account of the six wives of Henry VIII Short and to the point and no new insights If you want a basic account of Henry then this is the book for you!

    A lot of historical inaccuracies and context makes this book a bad choice for anyone truly interested in learning deeply about this period in time. Ok for casual readers who aren't concerned about such details though.

    Thus is a great quick history of King Henry VIII and his wives. I was a bit skeptical at first but this book is well written. Thoroughly enjoyed!

    Actually not a bad quick overview if you are unfamiliar. I didn’t learn anything new and the typos and editing were very distracting.
