Reviews

"A wonderfully fluent portrait of five generations... de Lisle brings an entirely fresh feel to the Tudor story, reminding us of the one thing the monarchs themselves wanted us to forget: the sheer improbability of their royal rule" -- Dan Jones, author of The Plantagenets * The Times (Saturday Review) *
"Violent, heady, glamorous stuff, this is popular history of a very superior sort" -- Lucy Worsley * Country Life *
"Vivid... Part of the interest of this book lies in the portraits of strong women" -- Charles Moore * Daily Telegraph *
"Tudor is a gripping account of a family riven by passionate jealousies, murderous ambitions and crippling tragedies. Leanda de Lisle is a master storyteller, and this is her greatest work yet. Immersive and exhaustively researched, Tudor is a triumph." * Amanda Foreman, author of Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire *
"While many Tudor fans have been crying out for an accessible narrative history of the entire period, few historians have felt able to rise to the challenge... [de Lisle] manages to achieve that very feat... should now be the go-to book" -- Chris Skidmore * History Today (Books of the Year 2013) *
