Sorry, this item is now out of stock.

Of all the executions ordered by Henry VIII, perhaps the most horrifying was that of Margaret Pole, the 67-year-old Countess of Salisbury, butchered by a blundering headsman in 1541. This gripping biography charts a life scarred by violence since her father, the Duke of Clarence, was executed by his brother Edward IV. Margaret fell from favour after Henry divorced her friend Catherine of Aragon, and when her son Reginald organized a Catholic rebellion, disfavour turned to imprisonment and death.
