Description
The author of the National Book Critics Circle Award finalist and Whitbread Award winner "My Heart is My Own": The Life of Mary Queen of Scots, John Guy here lifts the historical veil to reveal the family dynamics at the heart of the Tudor dynasty in the court of Henry VIII. Henry fathered four living children—Mary, Elizabeth, and Edward, and the bastard Henry Fitzroy—each by a different mother. Possessed of quick wits and strong wills, their characters were defined partly by the educations they received, and partly by events over which they had no control. And though they idolized their father, they differed radically over how to perpetuate Henry's legacy. Guy shows how the various circumstances of their childhoods shaped their lives and England itself.

"This is a short, furtive work, written in a plaintive, accessible style, which functions as a sort of primer on the story of Henry VIII's three children who followed him on the throne.... Indeed, this work has wide-ranging appeal for all manner of readers, whether casual or scholarly."—Sixteenth-Century Journal
