'This six-book series looks likely to become a landmark in historical fiction' The Times
Alison Weir, historian and author of the Sunday Times bestsellers Katherine of Aragon: The True Queen, Anne Boleyn: A King's Obsession and Jane Seymour: The Haunted Queen, draws a spellbinding portrait of Anna of Kleve, Henry VIII's fourth queen, as you've never seen her before. What secrets did Anna of Kleve hold?
A German princess, with whose portrait a king has fallen in love. A young woman who has none of the accomplishments he admires in women. A young woman who lives with a guilty secret.
Anna awaits her bridegroom. She prays that she will please him. She knows she is no beauty... It is the most disastrous of beginnings.
And now it is her wedding night, and she is tense with fear.
They think, these English, that she is ignorant and naïve. They do not know her, or that she is aware of what is going on behind her back.
Will it be divorce - or the headsman's sword?
ANNA OF KLEVE - the fourth of Henry's queens.
Alison Weir reveals a charming, spirited woman loved by all who knew her - and even, ultimately, by the King who rejected her.
But her story does not end there.
