Mary Boleyn

'The Great and Infamous Whore'

Sister to Anne Boleyn and seduced by two kings, Mary Boleyn has long been the subject of scandal and myth. Her affair with Henry VIII fuelled the shocking annulment of his marriage to Anne, and Mary is rumoured to have borne his child in secret.

In this, the first full-length biography of Mary Boleyn, Alison Weir explodes much of the mythology that surrounds her subject's notoriety. Her extensive research gives us a new and detailed portrayal, revealing Mary as one of hte most misunderstood figures of the Tudor age.

From the internationally bestselling author of Eleanor of Aquitaine.

"Weir states correctly that this book is as much a historiography as it is a biography"
Alison Weir lives and works in Surrey. Her books include Britain´s Royal Families, Children of England, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Henry VIII: King and Court, Mary, Queen of Scots and, most recently, Isabella.
"A comprehensive exploration of the myth surrounding her subject" Sunday Times "Gripping" Independent on Sunday "Alison Weir is one of our best popular historians and one, moreover, with an impressive scholarly pedigree in Tudor history" -- Frank McLynn Independent "Weir is particularly good at piecing together historical mysteries, and this penetrating portrait of a much-misunderstood woman set against the riveting background of the Tudor court is a real eye opener" Good Book Guide "Weir states correctly that this book is as much a historiography as it is a biography" -- Sara Read Times Higher Education
