 Henry was growing tired of his ageing wife who had failed to give him the son he desired, and was encouraging his conscience to worry him concerning the legitimacy of his marriage.  Thus his Secret Matter became the most important political issue of his reign.

Katherine, robbed of the companionship of her friends, was surrounded by spies who reported her actions to her great enemy, Cardinal Wolsey.  Desperately trying to maintain friendship between England and Spain, she suddenly realised that it was her own position as Queen of England and her beloved daughter's legitimacy for which she must fight.

The years of humiliation and anxiety began when the French ambassador, in view of the rumours of divorce, questioned the legitimacy of the Princess Mary.  Bravely, the Queen faced her enemies, but she was fighting a losing battle as she retreated by slow steps from Greenwich to Kimbolton.

Here is the story of the momentous years of indecision, the political intrigues, the broken alliances, the Sack of Rome, the farcical trial, the schemes and ambitions which culminated in the break with Rome.

Hard cover.  The book is in good condition, the dust jacket shows signs of wear.  284 pages.
