Katherine of Aragon, The True Queen by Alison Weir

The first of Henry’s Queens.  Her story…

Six weeks from home across treacherous seas, everything is different: the language, the food, the weather.  And for her there is no comfort in any of it.  At sixteen years-old, Catalina is alone among strangers.

She misses her mother.  She mourns her lost brother.

She cannot trust even those assigned to her protection.

Acclaimed, bestselling historian Alison Weir has based her enthralling account of Henry VIII’s first wife on extensive research and new theories.  She reveals a strong, spirited woman determined to fight for her rights and the rightful place of her daughter.  A woman who believed that to be the wife of a King was her destiny

History tells us how she died.  This captivating novel shows us how she lived.

A Spanish princess.  Raised to be modest, obedient and devout.
Destined to be an English Queen.

Peer & Press Reviews

In this, the first novel of the Six Tudor Queens series, Alison Weir brings Katherine of Aragon dazzlingly to life.  Based upon extensive new research, it is a portrayal that shatters the many myths about Henry VIII’s long-suffering first wife.  Far from being the one-dimensional victim of history, she emerges as a charismatic, indomitable and courageous heroine whose story never fails to enthral.

Tracy Borman, author of The Private Lives of the Tudors

Weir is excellent on the little details that bring a world to life.

Guardian

Yet again, Alison Weir has managed to intertwine profound historical knowledge with huge emotional intelligence, to compose a work that throws light on an endlessly fascinating historical figure.  Yet her real gift in all of this is making it feel so fresh and alive.

Earl Spencer, author and broadcaster
