Catherine of Aragon, the Spanish Princess

January 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Six Wives of Henry VIII: Personality and Politics

Join us, online, as we welcome back Carol Ann Lloyd with another new series of talks.

Catherine of Aragon, the Spanish Princess

She’s often remembered as the devoted but dowdy elderly wife of Henry VIII. But Catherine of Aragon was an extraordinary young woman when she came to England, was wife to two heirs to the English throne, and was a beloved and remarkable wife to Henry VIII for most of his reign. The daughter of a powerful mother, Isabella of Castile, Catherine believed in her own and her daughter’s abilities to rule. She believed it was her destiny to be Queen of England, and she stood up to Henry VIII when he tried to set her aside. For years, she was a beloved Queen of England, and the people remained loyal to her until the end of her life.

Both religious women, both mothers on daughters, Catherine of Aragon and Anne Boleyn together were with Henry VIII for 70 percent of his reign.
