Marrying Henry VIII was not an easy option. This book provides tips to think about such as "Think carefully before accepting his proposal" and "give birth to a son, not a daughter". Set in the backdrop of the turbulence in the royal courts of Tudor England, this book describes Henry and his many wives - what went right, what went wrong and what became of them all. The text also provides information of the church's break with Rome and explanations of the roles of the key figures involved, including Wolsey and Cranmer. You really wouldn't want to be married to Henry VIII. This illustrated text can be used for Key Stage 2 history.
