Author(s): SANDERS MARGARET
This selection of intimate letters of England's kings is sure to intrigue anyone with an interest in the personal lives of some of England's most powerful men. Intimate Letters of England's Kings starts with Henry VII (1457-1509) and ends with William IV (1765-1837), and provides the reader with an illuminating insight into the lives of kings, from Henry VIII's declaration of love to Anne Boleyn to the letter written by Charles II to his wife Catherine of Braganza. Chosen for their human appeal, these letters show the people behind the crown, allowing history to assume a remarkably human face.
'These letters, extracted and presented in this way, justify the author's claim to portray to the general reader aspects of personality, the more interesting because of their sharp contrasts ... There is humour and charm as well as tragedy and tears in this collection.' 'The editor has done her work well. Her comments are shrewd and sympathetic.' 'I should like to recommend Margaret Sanders' book.'
Margaret Sanders has also written Intimate Letters of England's Queens.
