A GERMAN PRINCESS WITH A GUILTY SECRET.
The King is in love with a portrait, but the real Anna does not enchant him.
She must win him over. Everyone knows that Henry won't stand for a problem queen.
But rumours of Anna's past are rife at court - dangerous talk that could mark her downfall. Can this clever, spirited young woman reach out in friendship to the King, and gain his love forever?
ANNA OF KLEVE
THE FOURTH OF HENRY'S QUEENS
Acclaimed, bestselling historian 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.
