Alison Weir: England’s Lost Kings – Edward V and Arthur Tudor
Sunday 19th August, 11:00 am - 11:45 am
One was an uncrowned king, the elder of the famous Princes in the Tower; the other was the lost heir to the Tudor dynasty. Edward V disappears from the pages of history at the age of twelve; Arthur Tudor, Prince of Wales, died at fifteen, and his younger brother, Henry VIII, became king in his place. Drawing on extensive research, Alison Weir recounts the lives of these two hapless princes and explores the mysteries that surround them. What happened to Edward V? Was he murdered on the orders of his uncle, Richard III, the man who had usurped his throne? Was Edward the child of an invalid marriage, as Richard asserted? Was Arthur’s marriage to Katherine of Aragon consummated? And what was the cause of his early death?
Book signing: 11.45 am to 12.00 pm.
