ONLINE: The Spanish Queen: Katharine of Aragon and her Continental Family - SOLD OUT

Friday 29 January 2021 19:30 - 20:15

Sarah Gristwood, author of' Game of Queens', explores the pressures and powers at work in Katharine’s family.

These pressures came not just through her mother Isabella of Castille but also in the light of the times in which she lived, when large parts Europe were under a reigning queen or female regent. Sarah’s talk will examine how Katharine’s fierce loyalty to Spain during her early years in England changed during marriage to Henry into a strong allegiance to the English cause, switching back after the annulment to renew old loyalties to her powerful European relatives.

Approx. 45-50 mins, including questions.
