An enticing short fiction collection from the bestselling author of The Six Tudor Queens series leads the reader on a journey of discovery through the carefully guarded secrets of the Tudor court.
The complete Six Tudor Queens short-story collection by acclaimed historian and author, Alison Weir.
Behind every great king stands a queen. And behind every queen, the whole court watches on...
Over the years of his reign, six different women took their place beside King Henry VIII of England as his wife and queen.
But the real stories of the six Tudor queens belong to those who lived among them. Played out in glittering palaces and whispering courts, these are tales of the people who loved and served these women, and those who lied and betrayed them.
Collected together for the first time, In the Shadow of Queens reveals twelve startling stories from the Tudor court, told by those at the very heart of that world.
Groundbreaking truth. Breathtaking fiction.
