More About This Book

Overview

The first ever biography of Jane Seymour, Henry VIII’s third wife, who died in childbirth giving the king what he craved most – a son and heir.

First biography to show the real Jane Seymour; she may have been submissive and obedient in front of Henry, but her true personality was far more cutthroat.

Despite the huge interest in the wives of Henry VIII - most of his wives are the subject of at least two books - Jane has none.

Jane Seymour is often portrayed as meek and mild and as the most successful, but one of the least significant, of Henry VIII’s wives. The real Jane was a very different character, demure and submissive yet with a ruthless streak – as Anne Boleyn was being tried for treason, Jane was choosing her wedding dress. From the lowliest origins of any of Henry’s wives, her rise shows an ambition every bit as great as Anne’s.

Elizabeth Norton tells the thrilling life of a country girl from rural Wiltshire who rose to the throne of England and became the ideal Tudor woman.

    I loved this book so much. Even though this read was a short one

    I loved this book so much. Even though this read was a short one, the author put so much detail into her life. I am a history buff and I have always been a fan of the Tudor dynasty and even though that Jane was never talked about, this book really opened my eyes to her life that i knew nothing about. Its a must read for all history buffs and Tudor fans.
