Hunting Raven is proud to present the UK's most popular female historian Alison Weir as she talks about Anna of Kleve: Queen of Secrets - the fourth novel in her Sunday Times bestselling series Six Tudor Queens.

History tells us she was never crowned
But her story does not end there...

The King is in love with Anna’s portrait, but she has none of the accomplishments he seeks in a new bride. She prays she will please Henry, for the balance of power in Europe rests on this marriage alliance. But Anna’s past is never far from her thoughts, and the rumours rife at court could be her downfall. Everyone knows the King won’t stand for a problem queen. Alison Weir draws on new evidence to conjure a startling image of Anna as you’ve never seen her before. A charming, spirited woman, she was loved by all who knew her – and even, ultimately, by the King who rejected her.

Alison Weir has sold over 2.7 million books worldwide. Rich in detailed research, Alison’s engaging prose has captured the interest and imagination of countless people, instilling a love of history among people throughout the world. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and an honorary life patron of Historic Royal Palaces.

Each of Alison's Six Tudor Queens novels can be read in isolation – each providing a fascinating account of the lives of these enigmatic and compelling characters – or as part of a series that continues to delight and enlighten in equal measure.

There will be a Q&A following the event. Books will be available to buy on the night and Alison will be very happy to sign them.
