    While Henry VIII is a common thread running through this 'collective biography', the focus is on the lives of the women who shared his bed. Tudor historian Amy Licence tells the stories of how these wives and mistresses were wooed by Henry; she explores their relationships with the king in the context of the sexual and cultural mores of 16th century England; and she looks at how their lives were changed - and sometimes ended - as a result of their liaisons.
