Synopsis: Whilst the young King Henry VIII basks in the pageants and games of his glittering court, his doting queen’s health and fortunes fade. Henry’s affections for his older wife soon stray, leaving the lonely Katharine to instead use her marital sway to dangerous foreign advantage. Overseas battles play on Henry’s volatile temper, and whilst many his power, rumours of his fruitful affairs are notorious. With no legitimate heir yet born, Katharine once again begins to fear for her future… (

Verdict: I think Plaidy does a wonderful job of really bringing historical characters to life. I could picture in my mind, Henry VIII and Katherine of Aragon.
