Meet the Author: Alison Weir, Katheryn Howard: The Tainted Queen

The National Archives, Richmond, International, United Kingdom

Wednesday, April 14, 2021 - 19:30

Join Alison Weir as she discusses the fifth novel in her Six Tudor Queens series, Katheryn Howard: The Tainted Queen.

In conversation with our record specialists, Alison sheds light on Henry's 'rose without a thorn' fifth wife and teenage bride, who led a short and tragic life. She was a young girl, thrust forward by her ambitious family. She captured the heart of a king, who extoled her beauty and her virtue. But Katheryn had a past which Henry knew nothing about, that increasingly came back to haunt her, even as she courted danger yet again.

This online talk will be presented on Teams. You will be emailed an access link shortly before the event is due to start.
