Alison Weir - Anna of Kleve - Queen of Secrets

Join Alison Weir - the
UK's most popular and best-selling female historian, for a talk on her latest novel in the Six Tudor Queens series.

Anna of Kleve -A German Princess with a Guilty Secret


The King is in love with Anna’s portrait, but she has none of the accomplishments he seeks in a new bride.


She prays she will please Henry, for the balance of power in Europe rests on this marriage alliance.


But Anna’s past is never far from her thoughts, and the rumours rife at court could be her downfall.


Everyone knows the King won’t stand for a problem queen.


Alison Weir draws on new evidence to conjure a startling image of Anna as you’ve never seen her before.


A charming, spirited woman, she was loved by all who knew her – and even, ultimately, by the King who rejected her.  History tells us she was never crowned. But her story does not end there.


Rich in detailed research,
Alison’s engaging prose has captured the interest
and imagination of countless people, instilling a love of history that
has influenced the career paths of historians, historical novelists and
teachers, while also greatly increasing knowledge of medieval and Tudor
English history among people throughout the
world. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and an honorary
life patron of Historic Royal Palaces.
