Katherine the Virgin Widow by Jean Plaidy

Recommended by Tuki in Adult Services…

Tuki’s synopsis:
The period setting is the late 15th to early 16th century. This is the story of Katherine of Aragon and her marriage to Arthur, the Prince of Wales who subsequently dies of poor health. Because of their youth there was a question as to whether their marriage was ever consummated. Following Arthur’s death, there was a period of time when Katherine’s position and status was in limbo. But as history tells us Katherine goes on to marry Henry V111 and assumes the title of the Queen of England.

She says:
Very interesting to read about the machinations of the royal families in England and Spain during that period of time and how marriage alliances were made to secure political clout.
