Henry: Virtuous Prince
The highly-anticipated biography of Henry VIII's early life. It tells of a gifted and virtuous prince, raised as the 'spare' to the throne. He was indulged, and, as a young king, he obsessively sought fame. Yet his early life was insecure, overshadowed by the Wars of the Roses. This is the story of a Renaissance prince who turned tyrant and who, half a millenium after he lived, still towers over history.
