Seventeen-year-old Henry VIII was ""a youngling, he cares for nothing but girls and hunting"" and over the years, this didn't change much. Henry was considered a demi-god by his subjects, so each woman he chose was someone who had managed to stand out in a crowd of stunning ladies. Looking good was not enough (indeed, many of Henry's lovers were considered unattractive); she had to have something extra special to keep the king's interest, and Henry's women were every bit as intriguing as the man himself. In this book, Henry's mistresses are rescued from obscurity. The 16th century was a time of profound changes in religion and society across Europe-and some of Henry's lovers were at the forefront of influencing these events.
