When Henry VIII dies in 1547 he left three highly intelligent children to succeed him in turn - Edward, Mary and Elisabeth - to be followed, if their lines failed, by the descendents of his sister Mary Tudor, one of whom was the ill-fated Lady Jane Grey, Edward was nine years old, Mary thirty-one and Jane ten. Edward, Elizabeth and Jane were staunch Protestants, Mary a devout Catholic; each had a very different mother and they had grown up in vastly different circumstances. In CHILDREN OF ENGLAND, Alison Weir's interest is not in constitional history but in the characters and relationships of Henry's four Heirs. Making use of a huge variety of contemporary sources, she brings to life one of the most extraordinary periods of English history, when each of Henry's heirs was potentially the tool of powerful political one religious figures, and when the realm was seething with intrigue and turbulent change.… (mer)

In this book, Weir tells us about King Henry VIII successors, beginning with his son Edward, Henry's great-niece Lady Jane Grey, his daughter Mary, and his daughter Elizabeth. This book focuses on the reigns of Edward, Jane, and Mary, and ends as Elizabeth is becoming queen. Weir is trying to show us more about the relationships between them, which I think is why she doesn't continue on to Elizabeth's reign.

I like reading the historical fiction about the Tudors, but reading this nonfiction account actually tells me what really happened; the fictional accounts always leave me wondering what was real and what wasn't. ( )

It's non-fiction, but is much better than her Captive Queen. Also, mine is hardcover, not paperback. ( )

A very engaging biography of Henry VIII's children. The title is somewhat misleading in that it doesn't talk about his illegitimate son, Henry FitzRoy, and includes another Tudor descendant, Lady Jane Grey. The book is not an individual biography of each child, but examines their relationships with each other.

It's a very interesting read that holds the reader's attention. The short reign of Edward VI is tragic, and that of the "Nine Days Queen" even more so. Queen Mary I comes off as a religious intolerant, and Queen Elizabeth I is the hope of the future.

Excellent reading! ( )
