Tue 15 Oct
19:00 - 20:00
Historian Alison Weir returns to introduce the fourth of Henry VIII’s queens, the much-maligned Anna of Kleve, a German princess. The King falls in love with her portrait, but she has none of the accomplishments he looks for in a bride. She prays she will please him – the balance of power in Europe depends on it – and so, perhaps, does her life, but she is hiding a guilty secret that could be her downfall.
Based on extensive research, Alison Weir’s latest novel reveals a charming, spirited woman loved by all who knew her, and even, ultimately, by the King who rejected her.
