Contains a variety documentation that defies description, like the revelation that proposes Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII's second "wife," was actually his illegitimate daughter. Later finished by Fr. Rishton, the whole ghastly story of the Protestant revolt in England—with all its unsavory characters—is told through 1587 and the murder of Mary Queen of Scots (rightful heir to the throne) under Elizabeth I. 528 pgs;
