A naive girl, thrust forward by her ambitious family. A pretty girl, who has captured the heart of a King. She sings, she dances, she delights in the pleasures of being Queen. The King tells the world she is a rose without a thorn. He extols her beauty and her virtue. But Katheryn has a past of which Henry knows nothing. It comes back increasingly to haunt her, even as she courts danger yet again. Weir relates one of the saddest chapters in English history. Those who gather roses should beware the thorns.
Join Alison Weir at this member-only event as she discusses her latest novel, Katheryn Howard, the Tainted Queen.
Hear David Suchet, CBE, known for his portrayal of Agatha Christie's Poirot, give this two hour performance.
