The first instalment of the highly anticipated biography of Henry VIII, written by one of the UK's most popular, established and exciting historians. 'Henry: Virtuous Prince' is a radical re-evaluation of the monarchy's most enduring icon
'Writing with a mixture of tabloid verve and original scholarship, peppering every page with pungent wit and yet never skimping on the detail!the best political history of the reign of Henry VII so far!Starkey shows more vividly than any previous historian!eye-catching detail!for its extraordinary insights into the smouldering embers of the Wars of the Roses, "Henry: Virtuous Prince" is masterly. As a biography of England's most celebrated king, it's an outstanding overture.' John Guy, Sunday Times (Editor's Choice) 'If you like Henry VIII, this is what you'll like.' Tim Martin, Daily Telegraph (Books of the Year) 'Starkey gives us an unexpectedly fresh-faced Henry VIII in his breezy biography.' Dominic Sandbrook, Daily Telegraph (Books of the Year) 'It is brilliant, beady-eyed history, and every page of it has an intimate fascination!Starkey has eschewed the easy wisdom of hindsight!his strength is that he questions everything!he seeks fresh evidence...his writing is uncluttered
