Henry VIII and his six wives

There were six of them - three Katherines, two Annes, and a Jane. It was a dangerous, uncertain life. After the King's death in 1547, his sixth wife finds a box of letters - each of the first five wives. 
  King Henry was famous for many things, but one of the reasons he is famous is that he married six times. He was not a kind husband. Some of his queens had very short and unhappy lives. Many people were shocked at his six marriages. He should be ashamed for lacking responsibility, but we must not ignore the fact that he has the unique vision and talent. It is a very good book to know about the story of women behind the King.
