Join Alison Weir as she relates one of the saddest chapters in English history, the story ofKatheryn 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.
