Katherine Of Aragon
The True QueenBook - 2016
Weir brings to life the tumultuous tale of Katherine of Aragon, Henry VIII's first, devoted, and "true" queen. A princess of Spain, Catalina is only sixteen years old when she sets foot on the shores of England. The youngest daughter of the powerful monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella, Catalina is a coveted prize for a royal marriage - and Arthur, Prince of Wales, and heir to the English throne, has won her hand. But tragedy strikes and Catalina, now Princess Katherine, is betrothed to the future Henry VIII. The affection between Katherine and Henry is genuine, but forces beyond her control threaten to rend her marriage, and indeed the nation, apart. Henry has fallen under the spell of Katherine's maid-of-honour, Anne Boleyn. Now Katherine must be prepared to fight for her faith, her legitimacy, and her heart. Followed by "Anne Boleyn". 2016.
