The Connell Short Guide to Edward VI

Print or eBook

The reign of Edward VI, England’s boy-king, has alternatively been characterised as catastrophic or boring. But should it really be bundled up with his sister Mary’s as a “mid-Tudor crisis”? Was he a pawn in the hands of his advisors, or did he actually wield some power? Did “good duke” Somerset truly champion social justice while “bad duke” Northumberland’s power-hungry plotting brought the country to its knees? And who was responsible for the dramatic changes of the Edwardian religious reformation? In this concise guide, Anna Neima explores both Edward VI’s life and the debates thrown up by his brief but crucial years in power.
