This story is the king of England.His name is Henry 8 who has six wives.He want to his son very much.so,He divorced many times.I think he is a very selfish man because it seems that he don't think wives even though he is a King.I think the king should be kind all people.

Henry ¿ had six wives in his life.He wanted to have a son.Catherine Parr,his last wife and her maid found letters from five wives to him.I studied about Henry ¿ in world history class at high school.So I wanted to read this book,but I was surprised that he married six times.I think he is selfish.However,the story written about backgrounds of historical people like this one is very interesting.

This story is about Henry VIII and his 6 wives. Most of his wives' life were too sadly, because they were divoced or executed. In this story, main character is sixth wife, and she reads letters from other wives to Henry VIII.I didn't know about his, but now I hate him. If I'm his wife, I can't feel ease and I think I'll be divoced or executed, too. All of his wives spent very very sad lives, and I think Henry VIII also spent his life sadly.

This book is written about Six queens of Henry VIII.First, Catherine of Aragon is written as prided and it is as high Catholic's princess. Second Anne Boleyn was as the queen to connected with love. Third Jane Seymour makes it pride to be able to leave a prince. Furth Anne of Cleves was divorced early and obtained king's younger sister's title. So she appreciates it. Fifth Katherine Howard is a daughter who fell into panic and who is youthfully thoughtless¿I became to want to study famous history of Britain and furthermore, I would like to read an English book and the book about Henry VIII after I read this book. This is very interesting.

Henry ¿¿was the King of England.He was famous for many thing, but he was also famous because he had six wives.This story is true ,and henry's 6th wife speaks this story to her new and young house maid.I don't want to become King's wife.Indeed, It will be able to spend rich life.But there are no liberty.Ilike to countinue my nowdays life.

When I was a high school student,I took a world history class.That's why I wanted to read this book.I knew that Henry VII had had six wives and killed many people,but this story was intresting.The woman talked about Henry's wives to the young girl.I was very sad about the stories.,However, I liked the ending.

I learned world history in my high school.I have wanted to read some books about history all along.So, I enjoyed reading this book very much.This story is about Henry¿ who was the King of the England and Queen Elizabeth's father.And he has six wives.He repeat to devorce and kill them.This story has many letters from six wives,and you can understand what was happen around them.Henry¿ is written that he was so cruel and clever in this book.I didn't understand how he was so clever very much.But this story is very interesting.I want to know how he was.why so clever man did repeat to divorce and kill?
