No one in history had a more eventful career in matrimony than Henry VIII. His marriages were daring and tumultuous, and made instant legends of six very different women. What could make him marry six times? In this new study, David Starkey argues that the King was not a depraved philanderer, but someone seeking happiness - and a son. Knowingly or not, he empowered a group of women to extraordinary heights and changed the way a nation was governed.
