Intimate Letters of England's Queens opens with the letters of Catherine of Aragon to her daughter, Mary, and the letter she wrote to her husband Henry VIII shortly before her death in 1501. This fascinating collection of letters allows the reader an insight into the private thoughts and feelings of these women, from the bitter anger expressed by Anne Boleyn in her letter to Cardinal Wolsey to her heartfelt attempt to save herself from death whilst imprisoned in the Tower in May 1536.
