New York Times Bestseller The latest novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Philippa Gregory features one of the most famous girls in history, Lady Jane Grey, and her two sisters, each of whom dared to defy her queen. Jane Grey was queen of England for nine days. Her father and his allies crowned her instead of the dead king’s half sister Mary Tudor, who quickly mustered an army, claimed her throne, and locked Jane in the Tower of London. When Jane refused to betray her Protestant faith, Mary sent her to the executioner’s block, where Jane transformed her father’s greedy power grab into tragic martyrdom. “Learn you to die,” was the advice Jane wrote to her younger sister Katherine, who has no intention of dying. She intends to enjoy her beauty and her youth and fall in love. But she is heir to the insecure and infertile Queen Mary and then to her half sister, Queen Elizabeth, who will never allow Katherine to marry and produce a Tudor son. When Katherine’s pregnancy betrays her secret marriage, she faces imprisonment in the Tower, only yards from her sister’s scaffold. “Farewell, my sister,” writes Katherine to the youngest Grey sister, Mary. A beautiful dwarf, disregarded by the court, Mary keeps family secrets, especially her own, while avoiding Elizabeth’s suspicious glare. After seeing her sisters defy their queens, Mary is acutely aware of her own danger but determined to command her own life. What will happen when the last Tudor defies her ruthless and unforgiving Queen Elizabeth?

The story of Elizabeth I, the last Tudor monarch, is one of enduring fascination. Daughter of the tyrannical Henry VIII and sister of the embittered Queen Mary, Elizabeth did well to survive her childhood. Clever, learned and skilled in diplomacy, as queen she presided over a golden age of literature, exploration and discovery. A selective version of events from Elizabeth's life focuses on her younger years, without distorting the picture of a reign dominated by war, political intrigue and religious disputes. Lives in Action is a series of narrative biographies that recount the lives of some of the key figures in history. Page-turning, thrilling plots that read like fiction will keep the most reluctant reader hooked.

Meisterin des Wortes Heimlich unterhält die Witwe Kateryn Parr eine Affäre mit ihrer großen Liebe, dem Baron Thomas Seymour. Doch als König Henry VIII. um ihre Hand anhält, hat sie keine Wahl: Sie muss das Angebot annehmen und darf Thomas nie wiedersehen. Kateryn weiß genau, in welche Gefahr sie sich begibt – schließlich wird sie die sechste Gemahlin des launischen Königs. Von zwei ihrer Vorgängerinnen trennte er sich, zwei ließ er hinrichten. Mit der Zeit wähnt sie sich aber in Sicherheit: Im Herzen des Hofes gründet sie einen Studierzirkel und bestimmt als Regentin die Geschicke des Landes in Henrys Abwesenheit. Doch als Befürworterin religiöser Reformen zieht sie schließlich doch Henrys Zorn auf sich ... «Philippa Gregory, Königin des historischen Romans, setzt dieser Heldin ein unvergessliches Denkmal.» (People Magazine) «Niemand schreibt besser über die Tudors als Philippa Gregory.» (Publishers Weekly) «‹Die letzte Gemahlin des Königs› ist nicht nur ein faszinierender Roman über eine überraschend wenig bekannte Zeit der Tudor-Dynastie, sondern vermittelt auch das bedrückende Gefühl des puren Terrors, den das Leben unter einem launischen Tyrannen mit sich bringt – besonders, wenn man mit ihm verheiratet ist.» (Reader’s Digest) «Drastisch schildert Gregory die Beziehung von Kateryn Parr und ihrem Gemahl Henry VIII. Genauso gut beschreibt sie auch die religiösen und politischen Spannungen im England der Tudors. Fesselnd.» (The Times) «Gregorys komplexes Porträt des alternden Königs und seiner sinnlichen, gelehrten Braut wird Tudor-Fans begeistern.» (Publishers Weekly)

Weiße Rose, rote Rose – ein Kampf zwischen Liebe und Vernunft Henry Tudor hat sich nach der siegreichen Schlacht von Bosworth 1485 zum König krönen lassen. Doch der neugewonnene Frieden ist fragil: Um die verfeindeten Häuser York und Lancaster miteinander zu vereinen, heiratet er Elizabeth von York. Die Loyalität der Königin wird auf eine harte Probe gestellt, als ein junger Mann auftaucht und Anspruch auf den Thron erhebt. Elizabeth muss sich entscheiden, wem ihre Treue gilt: ihrem Gemahl, den sie langsam zu lieben lernt, oder dem Mann, der behauptet, ihr Bruder zu sein. «Philippa Gregory schreibt wirklich verdammt gut.» (Brigitte)

A brilliant new interpretation of one of the most dramatic periods of British history: the Tudor victory and their dynasty. One of the most dramatic periods of British history, the Wars of the Roses didn't end at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485. Despite the death of Richard III and Henry VII's victory, it continued underground into the following century with plots, pretenders and subterfuge by the ousted white rose faction. In a brand new interpretation of this turning point in history, well-known historian Desmond Seward reviews the story of the Tudors' seizure of the throne and shows that for many years they were far from secure. He challenges the way we look at the reigns of Henry VII and Henry VIII, explaining why there were so many Yorkist pretenders and conspiracies, and why the new dynasty had such difficulty establishing itself. King Richard's nephews, the Earl of Warwick and the little known de la Pole brothers, all had the support of dangerous enemies overseas, while England was split when the lowly Perkin Warbeck skillfully impersonated one of the princes in the tower in order to claim the right to the throne. Warwick's surviving sister Margaret also became the desperate focus of hopes that the White Rose would be reborn. The book also offers a new perspective on why Henry VIII, constantly threatened by treachery, real or imagined, and desperate to secure his power with a male heir, became a tyrant.

This volume of Tudor Roses presents new and reimagined garments based on the original Tudor Roses published in 1998. Alice Starmore looks to historical female figures of the Tudor Dynasty as inspiration for her stunning knitwear, and her modernization of traditional Fair Isle and Aran patterns has created a sensation in the knitting world. Through garment design, Starmore and her daughter Jade tell the stories of fourteen women connected with the Tudor dynasty. They weave a narrative around the known facts of their subjects' lives using photography, art, and the only medium through which the Tudor women could leave a lasting physical record in their world — needlework. Tudor Roses includes fourteen patterns for sweaters and other wearables that follow the chronological order of the Tudor dynasty. A different model portrays each of the Tudor women, from Elizabeth Woodville, grandmother of Henry VIII, through Mary, Queen of Scots. The stunning design and photography appeals to knitters seeking designs that offer an attractive balance of historic and modern elements.
