Henry VIII and His Six Wives

 (Channel 5, 2016)

Henry VIII is the most infamous monarch in English history.

Famously he married six times over his 37-year reign. The six queens were formidable individuals. Some were ambitious, some brave, some ruthless, and between them they shaped the man who began as a Renaissance prince, became a monster and ended a regretful old man. In turn they shaped England itself.

Written and presented jointly by Suzannah Lipscomb and Dan Jones, this four-part series is an original and enlightening look at the real people at the centre of the action during one of the most turbulent, passionate and violent periods in English history.

‘Dan Jones and Suzannah Lipscomb are telling overlooked stories here, treating the wives in Henry’s life as queens and women, rather than marital appendages’

Sunday Times

‘The tale is familiar, but its presentation is refreshing’
