The first ever biography of Jane Seymour, Henry VIII s third wife, who died in childbirth giving the king what he craved most a son and heir.First biography to show the real Jane Seymour, she may have been submissive and obedient in front of Henry, but her true personality was far more cutthroat.Huge interest in the wives of Henry VIII, most of his wives are the subject of at least two books, Jane has none.Jane Seymour is often portrayed as meek and mild and as the most successful, but one of the least significant, of Henry VIII s wives. The real Jane was a very different character, demure and submissive yet with a ruthless streak as Anne Boleyn was being tried for treason, Jane was choosing her wedding dress.From the lowliest origins of any of Henry s wives her rise shows an ambition every bit as great as Anne s. Elizabeth Norton tells the thrilling life of a country girl from rural Wiltshire who rose to the throne of England and became the ideal Tudor woman."

The author covered her life as best she could because Jane Seymour is the lest documented of all Henry's queens. The author made many assumptions about what Jane might have thought or felt because there were no surviving records. Read full review
