New Trilogy coming soon by Alison Weir

Good morning everyone or good evening depending on where you are in the world! I meant to write this newsletter two days ago, but time got away from me and I ended up doing a lot of swimming in the pool. Since the Tudor Queens series came to a close with “Katherine Parr the 6th Wife,” Alison isn’t completely done with the Tudors all together.

 This new trilogy will be “The Tudor Rose Series.” According to Alison Weir’s page, On Henry VIII’s birthday, Headline Publishing is delighted to reveal a brand new trio of novels by Alison. The Tudor Rose series will span three generations of history’s most iconic family, The Tudors. The first book is a groundbreaking novelization of the woman who began it, Elizabeth of York. The second novel is a unique take on Henry VIII as you’ve never seen him before. The final book centers on one of the most maligned queens in history, Mary I.  Mary I is best known in history as Bloody Mary.

 For anyone who doesn’t know who Elizabeth of York is, she was the mother of Henry VIII and her brothers Edward and Richard were the princes in the tower. To this day we don’t know what happened to the princes or who killed them. The title of this novel is “Elizabeth of York The Last White Rose.” Knowing Alison she will stay historically accurate only fictionalizing things that we’ll never know for sure without being too farfetched.

 It will be interesting to see how Elizabeth might have felt marrying her enemy from the rival House of Lancaster and how they grew to love one another over time. “Elizabeth of York The Last Tudor Rose,” comes out May 2022. Whether that’s the UK publishing date or the US publishing date I’m not sure though I think it will come out in May first for the UK and then later for the US. I will update this newsletter when I find out more.
