'Divorced, beheaded, died,
Divorced, beheaded, survived.'– Rhyme describing the fates of Henry VIII’s wives

Beginning with the victory of Henry Tudor over Richard III at Bosworth Field in 1485, and ending with the death of the childless Elizabeth I in 1603 following a 45-year reign, the Tudor dynasty marks a period in British history where England was transformed from a minor medieval kingdom to a preeminent European power on the verge of empire.

Yet this period of great upheaval had a dark side: Henry VIII’s notorious break with the Roman Catholic Church and his divorce or execution of four of his six wives; the sad story of teenaged Lady Jane Grey, who was monarch for just nine days before being executed in favour of the Catholic Mary I; and Queen Elizabeth I, who defeated the Spanish Armada, suppressed the Irish rebellion, and sponsored pirates and slave traders in the quest for new territories in America.

Illustrated with 180 photographs, paintings and illustrations, Dark History of the Tudors is a fascinating, accessible account of the murder, adultery and religious turmoil that characterised England’s most infamous royal dynasty.
