About this Event

HISTORIC TALK

KATHERYN HOWARD: THE TAINTED QUEEN by Alison Weir

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.

KATHERYN HOWARD – the fifth of Henry’s queens.

Alison Weir relates one of the saddest chapters in English history.

Those who gather roses should beware the thorns.
