My name is Matilda Marchmont. Two weeks ago I would have said that I had the most boring life in the world, but ALL THAT HAS CHANGED. The day after my thirteenth birthday I left my sleepy country home and family to travel on horseback to London… to join the glamour and craziness of Henry VIII's court.

I have to lock my journal away now and keep the key on a chain round my neck. Don’t tell anyone…I’ve been warned that this place is teeming with dangerous enemies and spies.

Love, Matilda xxx
