Sneak peek: December 2016 new royalty books

It's time to take a sneak peek at next month's new royalty books! (As always, publication dates are subject to change.)

Edward I: A Second Arthur? by Andy King. A short biography of England's strange, complex King Edward I (1272-1307).

The King Is Dead: The Last Will and Testament of Henry VIII by Suzannah Lipscomb. The author examines the background to the drafting of the will and offers her own interpretation of the document.

Crown of Blood: The Deadly Inheritance of Lady Jane Grey by Nicola Tallis. Biography that presents "the Nine Days Queen" as a charismatic, intelligent young religious radical.

Marie Antoinette's Darkest Days by Will Bashor. The final days of the French royal prisoner registered as Widow Capet.

Well, those are some gloomy topics for the holiday season, but I'd still like to read them, especially Crown of Blood. Which book would you choose?

Don't forget — the full list of new royalty books will be published on the Books page on December 1.
