Six Wives: The Queens of Henry VIII by David Starkey

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. In this remarkable study, David Starkey argues that the king was not a depraved philanderer but someone seeking happiness -- and a son. Knowingly or not, he elevated a group of women to extraordinary heights and changed the way a nation was governed.

Six Wives is a masterful work of history that intimately examines the rituals of diplomacy, marriage, pregnancy, and religion that were part of daily life for women at the Tudor Court. Weaving new facts and fresh interpretations into a spellbinding account of the emotional drama surrounding Henrys six marriages, David Starkey reveals the central role that the queens played in determining policy. With an equally keen eye for romantic and political intrigue, he brilliantly recaptures the story of Henrys wives and the England they ruled.

The king, so far as we know, never considered marrying any of his many mistresses, but did entertain such thoughts towards the wife and later the widow of his closest friend. Unfortunately, when Henry was unattached, the object of his amour was married, and by the time she was widowed, Henry was himself again a husband. A sad story of what might have been then — if it is ever really possible to feel sorry for Henry VIII. The woman in question was Katherine Willoughby who, as a year-old, had married the near year-old Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk, in She bore Brandon two sons, but the king soon had his eye on her.
