Author(s): Alison Plowden
The Tudors ruled England for little more than a century, but no other dynasty has so impressed itself on the English consciousness. In a personal rather than political history, Alison Plowden tells the story of the five Tudor monarchs, as well as lesser known members of the family. Superbly told, this is the story of four turbulent, passionate, tragic and prodigious generations.
