Historian Dr. Lucy Worsley travels back in time to the Tudor Court of England's Henry VIII to witness some of the most dramatic moments in the lives of his six wives. Combining drama based on eyewitness accounts and historical sources with Lucy's own contemporary historical commentary, Lucy moves seamlessly from the present to the past. In a world run by men where the King held ultimate power, each Queen found their own unique methods of asserting their influence. For the first time, it is these women's stories that Lucy sets out to uncover, witness, and explore-while at the same time, she offers her own take on King Henry himself.
