Alison Weir presents Anna of Kleve: Queen of Secrets

May 9 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

£8

Join us as we welcome Alison Weir who will reveal a charming, spirited woman loved by all who knew her even, ultimately, by the King who rejected her. But her story does not end there.

 

A German princess, with whose portrait a king has fallen in love. A young woman who has none of the accomplishments he admires in women. A young woman who lives with a guilty secret. Anna awaits her bridegroom. She prays that she will please him. She knows she is no beauty. It is the most disastrous of beginnings. And now it is her wedding night, and she is tense with fear. They think, these English, that she is ignorant and naïve. They do not know her, or that she is aware of what is going on behind her back.

Will it be divorce – or the headsman’s sword?

Anna of Kleve: Queen of Secrets is the fourth novel in the Six Tudor Queens series by Alison Weir
