In the fifth novel in Kate Emersonâ€™s highly acclaimed
Secrets of the Tudor Court series, a young
gentlewoman catches King Henry the Eighthâ€™s roving eye.
In 1533 and again in 1534, Henry the Eighth reportedly kept
a mistress while he was married to Anne Boleyn. Now, that
mistress comes to vivid life in Kate Emersonâ€™s The Kingâ€™s
A real-life letter from Spanish Ambassador Eustace Chapuys,
written on September 27, 1534, reported that the king had
â€śrenewed and increased the love he formerly bore to another
very handsome young lady of the Courtâ€ť and that the queen
had tried â€śto dismiss the damsel from her service.â€ť Other
letters reveal that the mystery woman was a â€śtrue friendâ€ť of
the Princess (later Queen) Mary, Henryâ€™s daughter by
Catherine of Aragon. Though no one knows who â€śthe kingâ€™s
damselâ€ť really was, here Kate Emerson presents her as young
gentlewoman Thomasine Lodge, a lady-in-waiting to King
Henryâ€™s daughter, Princess Mary. Thomasine becomes the
Princessâ€™s confidante, especially as Henryâ€™s marriage to
Catherine dissolves and tensions run high. When the king
procures a divorce in order to marry Anne Boleyn, who is
suspicious and distrustful of Mary, Mary has Thomasine
placed in Anneâ€™s service to be her eyes and ears. And thatâ€™s
when she gets the attention of the king...
Rich in historical detail and featuring a wealth of bonus
material, The Kingâ€™s Damsel is sure to keep readers
coming back for more.
