Henry VIII was the infamous English king who abolished ties with the Catholic church and turned Britain into a protestant nation, positioning himself at the head of the new church. He is also famous for his many wives. In 1864 Louise Muhlbach, a German historical novelist, wrote a novel about Henry and his court, exploring his reign as she imagined it.
This interesting biography, told in the style of a historical romance novel, relates the lives of Marie Antoinette and her second child and eldest son, Louis Joseph, the Dauphin of France. Born in October of 1781, Louis Joseph was to become the heir to the French throne upon the death of his father, King Louis XVI. In 1789, Just as the French Revolution was coming underway, the Dauphin died of a severe illness at the age of seven, just under four years before his mother and father would be executed.
