"Henry VIII's sisters, neglected by generations of historians, impacted the lives and perceptions of their contemporaries much more forcefully than did any of their brother's famous six wives. In The Sisters of Henry VIII, Maria Perry examines the lives of these extraordinary women and analyzes their influence on European history in the Tudor Age." "The Sisters of Henry VIII rescues two remarkable princesses from the shadows of history and radically challenges popular views of both the king and his era."--BOOK JACKET.
"First published in Great Britain under the title: Sisters to the king: the tumultuous lives of Henry VIII's sisters--Margaret of Scotland and Mary of France by Andre Deutsch Limited"--T.p. verso.
