Horribly Famous: Henry VIII and his Wicked Wives

You may already know that Henry VIII is horribly famous for: having a bit of a weight problem, marrying six unlucky wives, and getting very carried away with his chopping block. But this horribly funny book will also tell you the facts that no other biography will: that Henry was a handsome hunk and sports star who accused his second wife of witchcraft, and bricked up his bedroom door at night.
