Book Description
All that most people know about Katherine Parr, Henry VIII`s sixth wife, is that she `survived`. She has often been dismissed as a matronly figure who nursed Henry as his health declined and made little impact in the drama ridden Tudor court. The truth, however, is much more interesting. Katherine was only thirty when she married the king. Beautiful, passionate, radical and highly intelligent, there was even a moment in their three year marriage when she almost became the third of Henry`s wives to lose her head, and was saved only by her own quick wits and the old king`s affection. After Henry`s death she hastily and secretly married her old flame, the rakish Sir Thomas Seymour, believing she had at last found true love. But her happiness was brief. Rumours spread through the court about Seymour`s open flirtations with Katherine`s own step daughter, the young Princess Elizabeth. Tragically, with the heartbreaking scandal still at its height, she died giving birth to her only child. In the first full scale biography of this fascinating woman, Linda Porter paints a vivid portrait of someone who until now has been mysteriously neglected and misunderstood, but who was one of the most intriguing and influential queen consorts in all English history.
