Book Description :

The latest novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Philippa Gregory features one of the most famous women in history, Lady Jane Grey, and her two sisters, each of whom dared to defy her queen. Jane Grey was queen of England for nine days. Her father and his allies crowned her instead of the dead king’s half-sister Mary Tudor, who quickly mustered an army, claimed her throne, and locked Jane in the Tower of London. When Jane refused to betray her Protestant faith, Mary sent her to the executioner’s block, where Jane transformed her father’s greedy power-grab into tragic martyrdom. “Learn you to die,” was the advice Jane wrote to her younger sister Katherine, who has no intention of dying. She intends to enjoy her beauty and her youth and fall in love. But she is heir to the insecure and infertile Queen Mary and then to her sister Queen Elizabeth, who will never allow Katherine to marry and produce a Tudor son. When Katherine’s pregnancy betrays her secret marriage, she faces imprisonment in the Tower, only yards from her sister’s scaffold. “Farewell, my sister,” writes Katherine to the youngest Grey sister, Mary. A beautiful dwarf, disregarded by the court, Mary keeps family secrets, especially her own, while avoiding Elizabeth’s suspicious glare. After seeing her sisters defy their queens, Mary is acutely aware of her own danger, but determined to command her own life. What will happen when the last Tudor defies her ruthless and unforgiving cousin Queen Elizabeth?

Book Description :

'Leanda de Lisle brings the story of nine days' queen, Lady Jane Grey and her forgotten sisters, the rivals of Elizabeth I, to vivid life in her fascinating biography' Philippa Gregory The dramatic untold story of the three tragic Grey sisters, all heirs to the Tudor throne, all victims to their royal blood. Lady Jane Grey is an iconic figure in English history. Misremembered as the 'Nine Days Queen', she has been mythologized as a child-woman destroyed on the altar of political expediency. Behind the legend, however, was an opinionated and often rebellious adolescent who died a passionate leader, not merely a victim. Growing up in Jane's shadow, her sisters Katherine and Mary would have to tread carefully to survive. The dramatic lives of the younger Grey sisters remain little known, but under English law they were the heirs - and rivals - to the Tudor monarchs Mary and Elizabeth I. The beautiful Katherine ignored Jane's dying request that she remain faithful to her beliefs, changing her religion to retain Queen Mary's favour only to then risk life and freedom in a secret marriage that threatened Queen Elizabeth's throne. While Elizabeth's closest adviser fought to save Katherine, her younger sister Mary remained at court as the queen's Maid of Honour. Too plain to be considered significant, it seemed that Lady Mary Grey, at least, would escape the burden of her royal blood. But then she too fell in love, and incurred the queen's fury. Exploding the many myths of Lady Jane's life and casting fresh light onto Elizabeth's reign, acclaimed historian Leanda de Lisle brings the tumultuous world of the Grey sisters to life, at a time when a royal marriage could gain you a kingdom or cost you everything. This is the true story behind Philippa Gregory's The Last Tudor and the only authoritative history book about the Grey sisters.

By the #1 New York Times bestselling author, a novel of passion and power at the court of a medieval killer, a riveting new Tudor tale featuring King Henry VIII’s sixth wife Kateryn Parr. Kateryn Parr, a thirty-year-old widow in a secret affair with a new lover, has no choice when a man old enough to be her father who has buried four wives—King Henry VIII—commands her to marry him. Kateryn has no doubt about the danger she faces: the previous queen lasted sixteen months, the one before barely half a year. But Henry adores his new bride and Kateryn’s trust in him grows as she unites the royal family, creates a radical study circle at the heart of the court, and rules the kingdom as Regent. But is this enough to keep her safe? A leader of religious reform and the first woman to publish in English, Kateryn stands out as an independent woman with a mind of her own. But she cannot save the Protestants, under threat for their faith, and Henry’s dangerous gaze turns on her. The traditional churchmen and rivals for power accuse her of heresy—the punishment is death by fire and the king’s name is on the warrant... From the bestselling author who has illuminated all of Henry’s queens comes a deeply intimate portrayal of the last: a woman who longed for passion, power, and education at the court of a medieval killer.

Book Description :

*Includes pictures of King Henry VIII, Queen Elizabeth I, and important people and events in their lives. Although the last Tudor ruler died over 400 years ago, it still remains England's most famous royal line, and it produced the most famous king and queen in history, both of whom continue to fascinate people around the world today. Over 450 years after his reign, Henry VIII is still the most famous and recognizable King of England, but it's for all the wrong reasons. Though well regarded by contemporaries as a learned king and "one of the most charismatic rulers to sit on the English throne," he is best remembered today for his gluttony and multiple marriages, particularly the gruesome way in which he was widowed on more than one occasion. Naturally, that was the focus of the popular Show Time drama series centered around his life, The Tudors. Henry VIII will probably continue to be best known for beheading some of his wives, most notably Anne Boleyn, so it is somewhat fitting that his most decisive act came as a result of a marital mishap. Sharply at odds with the Catholic Church over his attempt to dissolve his marriage with Catherine of Aragon, Henry VIII ultimately broke with the Church and established the Church of England, which forever both the religious history of England and the social hierarchy of the nation and its empire. When Queen Elizabeth II came to the throne in 1952, many commentators heralded the beginning of her reign as the second Elizabethan age. The first one, of course, concerned the reign of Henry VIII's second surviving daughter and middle surviving child, Queen Elizabeth I, one of England's most famous and influential rulers. It was an age when the arts, commerce and trade flourished. It was the epoch of gallantry and great, enduring literature. It was also an age of wars and military conflicts in which men were the primary drivers and women often were pawns. Elizabeth I changed the rules of the game and indeed she herself was changed by the game. She was a female monarch of England, a kingdom that had unceremoniously broken with the Catholic Church, and the Vatican and the rest of Christendom was baying for her blood. She had had commercial and militaristic enemies galore. In the end, she helped change the entire structure of female leadership. Elizabeth was the last Tudor sovereign, the daughter of the cruel and magnificent King Henry VIII and a granddaughter of the Tudor House's founder, the shrewd Henry VII. Elizabeth, hailed as "Good Queen Bess," "Gloriana" and "The Virgin Queen" to this day in the public firmament, would improve upon Henry VIII's successes and mitigate his failures, and despite her own failings would turn out to "have the heart and stomach of a king, and a king of England too." Indeed, that was the phrase she would utter in describing herself while exhorting her troops to fight for England against the Spanish Armada. The Tudors chronicles the reigns of England's most famous king and queen, but it also humanizes the man who fashioned himself both an athlete and scholar and the woman who ruled one of the world's most powerful kingdoms in an age dominated by men. Along with pictures of important people, places, and events in their lives, you will learn about Henry VIII and Elizabeth I like you never have before, in no time at all.

Book Description :

March 1554. Twenty-year-old Princess Elizabeth Tudor is imprisoned in the Tower of London for suspected treason. Imprisoned in another section of the Tower is Lord Robert Dudley, age twenty-one and Elizabeth's childhood friend and cherished companion. So close but so far apart, except for when their minds can touch. Both have been trained by the secretive astrologer and master of secret sciences John Dee. Enemies plot to take down the Tudor princess because of her claim to the throne of England, but a band of secret supporters unite behind her to keep Elizabeth Tudor alive. Robert has already been sentenced to death for taking up arms in his family's plot to place Lady Jane Grey on the throne. Now that Queen Mary rules, Elizabeth waits in terror for her own execution order to arrive. Trying circumstances indeed that might break any young adult on the verge of full adulthood. Through mystic connections, Elizabeth cries out with her mind to her secret ally Lord Robert, the only man she can trust - the cherished love of her heart. Will their plans and dreams come to pass, or will they become the smallest footnotes in English history? In the blink of an eye, Elizabeth and Robert discover that their fate is bound together forever. In this imaginative dark fantasy, the author presents a fun alternative history where arcane sciences protect the innocent. The historical outcomes remain the same, but the machinations behind the scenes that keep Elizabeth alive and bring her to the throne, are much influenced by secretive practices and depends on loyal men who bind together in a pledge to serve her interests. The love of Queen Elizabeth I for Lord Robert Dudley lasted the whole of their lives and even now evokes a sense of wonder and fascination. The story could have happened this way. Why not? This novel is dark fantasy Tudor fiction with paranormal elements. Will young Elizabeth wear the crown of thorns? Noble adventurers, dark-robed false priests, conspiring necromancers, all figure in Robert's involvement in the Rakehells - a bluecoated band of one hundred private soldiers who serve Elizabeth's Woodstock jailer Sir Henry Bedingfield. Robert joins with Elizabeth's cousin Sir Henry Carey under the direction of a mysterious Spanish nobleman, Ruy Gomez de Silva, who serves King Philip, consort of Queen Mary, as these true historical figures join together to preserve the last Tudor princess of King Henry VIII's direct line. This novel of Elizabeth and Robert is a PG-rated historical novel of two landmark figures at the early adulthood of their lives, which classifies this novel in the New Adult genre of historical dark fantasy fiction. The book also qualifies under the 'reverse harem' label, where a group of loyal males unite to protect one revered and beloved female, their respected princess Elizabeth Tudor, to serve as her protectors. Robert finds a new master, a true historical figure, Lord Ruy Gomez de Silva, King Philip's closes confidant, who in this version of history conducts him to Philip's court - with a side trip to Woodstock manor where Elizabeth is confined after being freed from the Tower. The third loyal man in their band of three is her loyal cousin Sir Henry Carey. Elizabeth faces a battle of wills to protect her integrity if she is ever released, for her brother-in-law King Philip has his eye upon his wife's winsome younger sister and Mary's court has no Me Two movement to protect even a princess.

Book Description :

Sunday Times bestseller A Telegraph Book of the Year A History Today Book of the Year A BBC History Magazine Book of the Year The Tudors are a national obsession; they are our most notorious family in history. But beyond the well-worn headlines is a family still more extraordinary than the one we thought we knew. The Tudor canon typically starts with the Battle of Bosworth in 1485, before speeding on to Henry VIII and the Reformation. But this leaves out the family’s obscure Welsh origins; it passes by the courage of the pregnant thirteen-year-old girl who would help found the Tudor dynasty; and the childhood and painful exile of her son, the future Henry VII. It ignores the fact that the Tudors were shaped by their past – those parts they wished to remember and those they wished to forget. With this background, Leanda de Lisle enables us to see the Tudors in their own terms and presents new perspectives and revelations on key figures and events, from the princes in the Tower to the Tudor Queens. Tudor tells a family story like no other.
