What was it like to live in Henry VIII's palace at Hampton Court? How was he entertained? What clothes did his wives wear? Who were his servants and what jobs did they do? This book reveals details of the everyday life of the court and its often oppressive atmosphere of pageantry and display set against the power struggles of courtiers, the king's desire for a legitimate heir and his compulsion to collect and spend wealth.
