Alison Weir

Join the bestselling author and historian Alison Weir in the Great Hall at Hampton Court for a talk about Henry VIII's tragic queen, Jane Seymour.

Alison Weir is the author of historical biographies including Elizabeth of York, The Lady in the Tower, Henry VIII and The Six Wives of Henry VIII, plus many popular historical novels such as Anne Boleyn: A King’s Obsession, Katherine of Aragon: The True Queen, A Dangerous Inheritance and Innocent Traitor.
