Alison Weir is the biggest-selling female historian (and the fifth best-selling historian) in the United Kingdom since records began in 1997. She has sold more than 2.7 million books – over a million in the UK and more than 1.7 million in the USA.
Alison has written biographies of Margaret Douglas, Elizabeth of York, Mary Boleyn, Katherine Swynford, Isabella of France and Mary, Queen of Scots; and her historical fiction has turned the spotlight on Elizabeth I, Lady Jane Grey, and Eleanor of Aquitaine.

Alison is now writing the Six Tudor Queens series, each focusing on a wife of Henry VIII. The first novel in the series, Katherine of Aragon: The True Queen (2016), is based upon extensive new research and is a portrayal that shatters the many myths about Henry VIII’s long-suffering first wife.
