Summary (From the publisher):

"Divorced, beheaded, died; divorced, beheaded, survived."

So the six wives of Henry VIII -- Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anna of Cleves, Katherine Howard and Catherine Parr -- have become defined in a popular sense not so much by their lives as by the way their marriages ended. But, as Antonia Fraser brilliantly and conclusively proves, they had their own strong characters. They may have been victims of Henry's obsession with a male heir, but they were not willing victims; on the contrary, they exhibited remarkable degrees of spirit and defiance of which women living now might be proud. Antonia Fraser deals with each woman in turn with sympathy -- the sympathy they deserve for having had the unenviable fate of being Henry's wife. Their collective story is romantic and cruel, funny and sad, dramatic and enthralling.
