Children of England Summary

Children of England: The Heirs of King Henry VIII 1547-1558 by Alison Weir

When Henry VIII died in 1547, he left three highly intelligent children to succeed him in turn, to be followed, if their lines failed, by the descendants of his sister, Mary Tudor. Children of England begins at the point where Alison Wier's bestseller, The Six Wives of Henry VIII came to an end, and covers the period until Elizabeth succeeded to the throne in 1558. Her interest is in the characters and relationships with Henry's four heirs. Making use of a huge variety of contemporary sources, she brings to life one of the most extraordinary periods of English history, when each of Henry's heirs was potentially the tool of powerful political or religious figures, and when the realm was seething with intrigue and turbulent change.

Children of England Reviews

"Recounted with her usual lively thoroughness by Alison Weir, my favourite Tudor historian" -- Philippa Gregory * Independent on Sunday *
"With impressive narrative skill, Alison Weir pilots her readers through the ceaseless tides of intrigue which surged around the four heirs of King Henry VIII. Her mastery of detail brings their tempestuous lives into sharp focus from a distance of four centuries... This is full-blooded history" -- Christopher Hirst * Independent *
"She writes in an engaging way and adopts an even-handed approach" * Irish Times *
"Alison Weir is one of our best popular historians and one, moreover, with an impressive scholarly pedigree in Tudor history" -- Frank McLynn * Independent *
"Weir provides immense satisfaction. She writes in a pacy, vivid style, engaging the heart as well as the mind. This, her fourth book on the Tudors, affirms her pre-eminence in that field" -- Amanda Foreman * Independent *
