About this item
A major new biography of Catherine of Aragon by an acknowledged expert of Spanish and Tudor history.
Author's last Tudor book ARMADA very well received: 'Absorbing, intelligent... an original, wide-ranging narrative' BBC HISTORY MAGAZINE.
Amazingly, the first biography ever to make use of records in the Spanish royal archives.
Catherine of Aragon was a central figure in one of the most dramatic and formative events of Tudor history England's breach with Rome after a thousand years of fidelity. She lived through traumatic and revolutionary times and her personal drama was played out against dramas of global significance. The heroic and dignified first wife of Henry VIII who was cast aside for reasons of dynastic ambition, but who resolutely and unbendingly stuck to her principles and her dignity at enormous cost to herself.
Catherine's story tells so much about the exercise of power, and about being married to a lover who became slowly but perceptibly a tyrant in public life and a monster in his private affairs.
