Everything there is to know about Henry's life and his court is here I mean everything what he wore when he married his 2nd ueen what he ate at the 4th Christmas of g is reign how many times he advanced in a tilting match in August 1531etc etc There is little analysis or focusing only strings of facts and lists of items So it is uite boring But I did read it all skimming through some pages and was eddified to learn about aspects of his administration aside from the drama of the marriages and the split with the European church The opulence of his spending on buildings festivities purchases of jewels clothes and 'things' and his patronage of the arts for propaganda comes across but it would have been digestible if the context of his reign was explained too One needs a summary of the previous century to help comprehend why Henry 8th lived like thatI do not recommend this book but am not sorry that I have read it

This was tedious in the extreme We're warned at the start that she'll be setting the scene for Henry in the early chapters but the scene setting takes about ⅓ of the book and it's really little than lists of things The author loves richness and opulence and silks and furs but that wears one out after a while We never get beyond Henry's apparel his houses his accoutrements There's nothing searching no awkward uestions I mean he had two wives effectively murdered his first was cast aside his fourth abandoned if amazingly left unmurdered Even his sixth wife had warrant for her arrest drawn up The man was a monster and this is not explored Popular history at its most superficial
