About this product
- DescriptionIn 1485, young Henry Tudor, whose claim to the throne was so weak as to be almost laughable, crossed the English Channel from France at the head of a ragtag little army and took the crown from the family that had ruled England for almost four hundred years. Half a century later, his son, Henry VIII, desperate to rid himself of his first wife in order to marry a second, launched a reign of terror aimed at taking powers previous monarch had even dreamed of possessing. In the process he plunged his kingdom into generations of division and disorder, creating a legacy of blood and betrayal that would blight the lives of his children and the destiny of his country. The Tudors weaves together all the sinners and saints, the tragedies and triumphs, the high dreams and dark crimes that reveal the Tudor era to be, in its enthralling, torious truth, as momentous and as fascinating as its portrayal in fiction.
