The Children Of Henry VIII

Hay Festival 2013, 

Henry fathered four living children, Henry Fitzroy, Edward, Mary and Elizabeth, each by a different mother. Their interrelationships were often scarred by jealousy, mutual distrust, sibling rivalry, even hatred. Possessed of quick wits and strong wills, their characters were defined partly by the educations they received, and partly by events over which they had no control. Introduced by SJ Parris.
