"I am Catalina, Princess of Spain, daughter of
the two greatest monarchs the world has ever known...and I
will be Queen of England."
bestselling author Philippa Gregory introduces one of her
most unforgettable heroines: Katherine of Aragon. Known to
history as the Queen who was pushed off her throne by Anne
Boleyn, here is a Katherine the world has forgotten: the
enchanting princess that all England loved. First married to
Henry VIII's older brother, Arthur, Katherine's passion
turns their arranged marriage into a love match; but when
Arthur dies, the merciless English court and her ambitious
parents -- the crusading King and Queen of Spain -- have to
find a new role for the widow. Ultimately, it is Katherine
herself who takes control of her own life by telling the
most audacious lie in English history, leading her to the
very pinnacle of power in England.
Set in the rich
beauty of Moorish Spain and the glamour of the Tudor court,
The Constant Princess presents a woman whose
constancy helps her endure betrayal, poverty, and despair,
until the inevitable moment when she steps into the role she
has prepared for all her life: Henry VIII's Queen, Regent,
and commander of the English army in their greatest victory
