Alison Weir

Alison Weir was born and raised in London but has lived in Norfolk, Sussex, and Scotland. Her interest in history began at the age fourteen when she read Henry’s Golden Queen, a novel based on the life of Katherine of Aragon by Lozania Prole. Alison’s first published book was Britain’s Royal Families although it was her second, The Six Wives of Henry VIII, that brought her wider public acclaim. She has written extensively about the Tudor dynasty and English medieval queens. In 2006 Hutchinson, an imprint of Random House, published her first novel Innocent Traitor based on the short, tragic life of Lady Jane Grey. Alison Weir lives in Surrey.
