Book cover of The Tudors in Love: The Courtly Code Behind the Last Medieval Dynasty by Sarah Gristwoodby Sarah Gristwood

‘One of the most important books to be written about the Tudors in a generation.’ Tracy Borman

‘A riveting, pacy page-turner… the Tudors as you’ve never seen them before.’ Alison Weir

Why did Henry VIII marry six times? Why did Anne Boleyn have to die? Why did Elizabeth I’s courtiers hail her as a goddess come to earth?

The dramas of courtly love have captivated centuries of readers and dreamers. Yet too often they’re dismissed as something existing only in books and song – those old legends of King Arthur and chivalric fantasy.
