About this Event

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.

If you're curious or captivated by Katheryn Howard's story, discover her in the records of our free online exhibition, With Love.

This talk will conclude with a live Q&A.
