The History of England

By Jane Austen

“[On Anne Bolin] It is however but Justicd, & my Duty to declare that this amiabke Woman was entirely innocent of the Crimes with which she was accused, if which her Beauty, her Elegance, & her Sprightliness were sufficient proofs, not to mention her solemn protestations of Innocence, the weakness of the charges against her & the King’s Character;…”- from the passage on King Henry the 8th

The History of England BY Jane Austen

From Goodreads

As a schoolgirl, Jane Austen must have suffered terribly under her lessons of English history. The sixteen-year-old finally took revenge and wrote her own history of the Kings and Queens of England. Containing thirteen mischievous portraits of the English Royals, this very entertaining–and incomparably unreliable–history book is illustrated by Mandy Schludt, whose previous work in illustration and book design received the distinguished Stiftung Buchkunst Prize in German (2005).

Here are the rules and how to participate in Teaser Tuesday. This meme is hosted by A Daily Rhythm and goes like this:

  1. Grab your current read
  2. Open to a random page
  3. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  4. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
