Katheryn Howard: The Tainted Queen with Alison Weir

York Explore
July 6 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm £7.50

Join Alison Weir as she relates one of the saddest chapters in English history, the story of  Katheryn Howard – the fifth of Henry VIII’s queens

Those who gather roses should beware the thorns.

A naive girl, thrust forward by her ambitious family. A pretty girl, who has captured the heart of a king.

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.
