By Paul Friedmann
“Divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived.”
They are phrases that everybody understands, yet of Henry VIII’s six better halves it's the moment, Anne Boleyn, who's the main attractive of them.
In this primary quantity of Friedmann’s vintage biography, Anne’s meteoric upward push is painted onto a broader canvas, displaying the way it affected the good powers of Europe — and England.
She entered Henry VIII’s existence at a time whilst he was once changing into more and more nervous for a son, and the thought of getting his first marriage annulled used to be transforming into stronger.
But Anne used to be wise and refused to give up simply to Henry VIII’s infatuation, having no wish to be simply one other mistress: she observed a chance for marriage, and acknowledgement as queen.
Over the years that Henry VIII’s obsession for Anne — and a male inheritor — grew, and because the King’s nice subject got here to dominate the political panorama she and her relatives prospered.
Meticulously researched, Friedmann exhibits how on the middle of the turbulence that will finally divide a country was once an comprehensive girl whose intelligence and resolution gained her a king — through her personal ideas.
