The six wives of Henry VIII - Catherine of Aragon, Anne, Bolyne, 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 these lives ended. But, as Antonia Fraser conclusively proves, they were rich and feisty characters. They may have been victims of Henry's obsession with a male heir, but they were not willing victims. On the contrary, they displayed considerable strength and intelligence at a time when their sex supposedly possessed little of either. Inevitably there was great rivalry between them, and there was jealousy too — the desperate jealousy of Queens who found themselves abandoned, but also the sexual jealousy of the King who discovered himself betrayed. The story Antonia Fraser tells is romantic and cruel, funny and sad, dramatic and enthralling.

'Henry's wives ... emerge ... not simply as appendages to their husband, but as intriguing individuals in their own right'— Literary Review

Isla Blair has appeared in numerous television programmes including Holhy City, Heartbeat, Taggart, Darling Buds of May, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie and Dalziel and Pascoe. Stage work includes One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and Noises Off (at the NT) as well as seasons with the Bristol Old Vic. She read the audio book of Atonement.
