Issue Cover

All About History  |  Issue 62  

Fat, tyrannical and married six times, this is what immediately comes to mind when you think of Henry VIII. However, this is not the story you will read in this issue of All About History. Instead, we explore his early years. The young Henry was a vibrant and handsome man who excelled at all he attempted, whether it was charming European powers, flirting on the dance floor or beating rivals on both the sports field and the battlefield. Blowing away the cobwebs of his father’s cautious and miserly final years, Henry sought to restore England to its former glory. He invested in cutting-edge warships like the Mary Rose and was a prolific patron of the arts, commissioning grand palaces and portraits. Behind closed doors, its said he enjoyed many happy years married to Catherine of Aragon and was a devoted father to his daughter Mary. ‘So, what went wrong?’ you might ask. Was it Henry’s overwhelming need for a male heir to further the Tudor dynasty? The irresistible allure of Anne Boleyn that set him on the road to ruin? Or was it a character flaw in Henry that was always going to taint his reign? Inside you will discover a different side of one of England’s most iconic kings.

First published in 2013, All About History is the UK’s biggest independent history magazine. Bringing together the drama of human history with expert analysis, incredible illustrations and captivating storytelling. It’s the ideal read for anyone who loves learning about history.

Each issue captures the imagination with six regular features including:

Ancient Empires: From Ancient Egypt and the Macedonian Empire to the Jin Dynasty and the Roman Empire, discover the amazing stories behind the truths and myths that have defined our world.

World Wars: Uncover some of the most tragic and heroic true stories from the trenches of World War I, and the battlegrounds of World War II.

Inside History: Incredible insights into historic buildings and machinery that changed the way we live forever.

Heroes and Villains: Learn what made the most influential figures in history tick, from kings and queens to inventors and explorers.

Timeline: Follow the most significant dates in history in chronological order, tracking the rise and fall of empires and individuals alike.

What if: Leading historians debate how the world may have looked today if some of the key historical events had turned on their head. What would have happened if Germany had won the Battle of Britain? What if the gunpowder plot had succeeded? What if the Vikings had colonised North America?
