Summary The Six Wives of Henry VIII

Read ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ç Lauren Mackay The Six Wives of Henry VIII Free download Ê 109 Lauren Mackay Ç 9 Read & Download The reports and despatches of Eustace Chapuys Spanish Ambassador to Henry VIII's court from 1529 to 1545 have been instrumental in shaping our modern interpretations of Henry VIII and his wives Through his personal relationships with several of Henry's ueens and Henry himself his writings were filled with colourful anecdotes salacious gossip and personal and insightful observations of the key players at court thus offe. The reign of King Henry VIII is no mystery to us we seem to know every detail from household accounts foods that were consumed songs that were exalted clothes that were fashionable to battles treaties disloyalties and the intricate details of Henry VIII s multiple wives We certainly aren t complaining as we literally eat this up like a decadent dessert However we have one man to thank for some of the inside scoop to Henry s court the Imperial ambassador Eustace Chapuys Chapuys appears in all Tudor history texts as his records and correspondence are in the top if not the very first primary source material Chapuys is seen in Tudor plays films fictional works etc yet he is always a mere background character whose importance and person we attempt to strip even though we take advantage of his almost two decades at the English court Chapuys is beyond deserving of recognition Lauren MacKay pulls Chapuys center stage once and for all in Inside the Tudor Court Henry VIII and his Six Wives through the Eyes of the Spanish Ambassador MacKay doesn t hesitate to hit the ground running opening Inside the Tudor Court with captivating intrigue setting the pace for a page turner Readers couldn t put down the text if they tried and the glue is instantaneous More often than not historical portraits of figures who aren t centric nobility generally leave a flimsy legacy and therefore a biography is uite ambitious These texts rarely bring the figure to life and discuss the environment andor events in the macro view and painfully draw out the clear absence of facts This is NOT the case with Inside the Tudor Court MacKay invites readers into a background look at Chapuys immediately revealing the life that shaped the man behind the famous Tudor court letters to the Spanish king Chapuys bursts into a breathing living thing and readers feel like they are walking alongside him Once this foundation is in place MacKay profoundly layers Inside the Tudor Court with various narratives The text doesn t merely relay andor interpret the missives written by Chapuys to simply describe the Tudor court happenings Rather MacKay also uses sleuth like detective work and analytical research to explain how Chapuys succeeded his methods his motivations his psyche and so forth Inside the Tudor Court is riveting enough that readers will never look at Chapuys the same again finally giving him the esteem he deserves as a cunning philosopher intellectual spy ambassador philanthropist and humanist Each page is insightfully complex and blends into a seamless narrativeMacKay never defaults to tangents and cleanly streamlines the text while unpeeling the multitude of personas that constituted for the Chapuys whole Inside the Tudor Court is far from dry even though it is academic and scholarly MacKay infuses the text with beautiful language and vivid imagery but never dampening the credibility of the work Relying on primary sources leads Inside the Tudor Court into the true world of Chapuys using uotes from the letters written by Chapuys to CharlesOne would naturally expect bias to slip into such a piece but Inside the Tudor Court only occasionally highlights MacKay s personal elucidations and these are passing rather than propaganda influence MacKay excels at the ratio of Henry s court history with a biography of Chapuys the man It would appear that both MacKay and her editor are at the top of their games In between the first and second embassies led by Chapuys MacKay offers a breakdown of the political roles and relationships empowered by Chapuys This is the only weak portion of Inside the Tudor Court as this is somewhat interjecting and out of placeThe concluding chapters of Inside the Tudor Court are thinner in comparison to the former chapters and scant in the personal details of the life of Chapuys A wrap up summarizing the man s prosperity would have been welcome but overall it is still solidMacKay includes 16 pages of color photo plates to supplement Inside the Tudor Court plus a list of primary and secondary sources and notes hardly annotated Inside the Tudor Court is utterly fantastic and should be a case study for contemporaries with the same aspiration Informative credible perfectly stylized and entrancing Inside the Tudor Court is recommended for all readers interested in Henry VIII s court the inter relationships between England and surrounding Europe and Eustace Chapuys himself Inside the Tudor Court is an absolutely incredible piece of work
