Sisters to the King (Hardback)Maria Perry (author)
- We can order this
This is the enthralling story of the lives of two remarkable women: women who have been defined by history as Henry VIII's sisters, but who were strong, fierce and sensual characters in their own right.
Illuminating and groundbreaking, Sisters to the King not only reveals two extraordinary women, but radically alters our view of Tudor history.
In the Tudor age, Margaret and Mary were more important personalities than Henry's wives. Margaret became Queen of Scotland aged thirteen; Mary was married off to the ageing King of France. Both risked their heads, and challenged convention, by choosing their second husbands for love. Theirs is a story of passion, defiance, betrayal and heartbreak.
