About Book

In 1501 a fifteen-year old Spanish princess, Catherine of Aragon, rode out from the magnificent Alhambra Palace in Granada. Ahead lay a journey to distant England, marriage to the Prince of Wales - and eventually a crucial place in English history, as the first wife of Henry VIII. Bold at war, loved by the people and obstinate under attack, Catherine's battle against divorce and Anne Boleyn changed the life of England forever.

Giles Tremlett's new biography is the first in more than four decades dedicated to this tenacious woman and it draws on fresh material from Spanish archives to trace the dramatic events of her life through Catherine's own eyes.
