Anna of Kleve: Queen of Secrets

Event Information

2pm with lunch at 12.30pm 

Showing on Fri 1 Nov

The spectacular fourth novel in the Six Tudor Queens series by the UK’s top-selling female historian. King Henry VIII is in love with Anna’s portrait, but she has none of the accomplishments he seeks in a new bride. She prays she will please Henry, for the balance of power in Europe rests on this marriage alliance. But Anna’s past is never far from her thoughts, and the rumours rife at court could be her downfall. Everyone knows the King won’t stand for a problem queen.

Alison Weir draws on new evidence to conjure a startling image of Anna as you’ve never seen her before. A charming, spirited woman, she was loved by all who knew her – and even, ultimately, by the King who rejected her.

“This six-book series looks likely to become a landmark in historical fiction” The Times
