28th June 1491 was a momentous day for England. Sadly England did not realise it at the time. I came kicking and squalling into this world, full of vigour, full of strength and hearty of lungs. God be witness to this, what was the first thing they did? Put me to the breast. Now I ask you ... what chance did a man have of growing up to be indifferent to women when they did that!' Thus does His Majesty come bounding onto stage and begin to take the reader on an extraordinary voyage into his extraordinary life. Dorothy Davies has channelled an incredibly intimate and vital account of one of the greatest of all English monarchs in this volume and it makes for unforgettable reading!
