Product description

Review

In this, the first novel of the Six Tudor Queens series, Alison Weir brings Katherine of Aragon dazzlingly to life. Based upon extensive new research, it is a portrayal that shatters the many myths about Henry VIII's long-suffering first wife. Far from being the one-dimensional victim of history, she emerges as a charismatic, indomitable and courageous heroine whose story never fails to enthral -- Tracy Borman

A tender understanding of and genuine sympathy for this proud, much-loved and honourable Queen... I was gripped [from] start to finish

-- Mavis Cheek

Weir is excellent on the little details that bring a world to life ― Guardian

Yet again, Alison Weir has managed to intertwine profound historical knowledge with huge emotional intelligence, to compose a work that throws light on an endlessly fascinating historical figure. Yet her real gift in all of this is making it feel so fresh and alive -- Earl Spencer

This exquisite book charts the rise and fall of Henry VIII's first wife, Katherine . . . A fascinating insight into this period of our history. Weir's undeniable strength is her immaculate description, enabling the reader to be transported back to Tudor England ― Sun

Weir manages to untangle the complex web of 16th-century politics, shown through Katherine's duties as ambassador, and her astute reading of the games being played. This adds greatly to the heft of the character, demonstrating what a competent woman she was becoming ― Herald Scotland

Katherine of Aragon, The True Queen is a true tour de force. Finely crafted, this novel is wonderful historical fiction and an outstanding introduction to the Six Tudor Queens series ― Queen Anne Boleyn Blog

Alison Weir clearly admires her heroine . . . meticulously researched ― The Times

A majestic book! ... I felt every one of [Katherine's] emotions: her joy, her heart-wrenching despair and the passionate loyalty she shows to Henry. The bravery she displays is incredible and she must have been one hell of a Queen. It is beautifully written and captivating with so much attention to detail, that the Tudor court came alive in every sense ― Baattyaboutbooks Blog

Captivating. . . The way that Katherine comes alive on the page is credit to the author who has such a breadth of knowledge about this Tudor period that it's a real pleasure to read her fictional work ― Jaffareadstoo Blog

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fantastic!!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 10 January 2021
wow.. WoW... WOW!!!!! What a fantastic book!! It’s very insightful and Alison Weir has done an amazing job at creating a fiction that stays true to the historical facts from the period of 1501 when Katherine landed in England to marry Arthur, through to her death in 1536.

What I enjoyed the most was how Alison portrayed this from Katherines point of view, and how she took into account what Katherine knew about the events going on around her and how she would of found out about what was going on in the world. Chapuys being her main link.

After reading lots of books on the Tudors there have been questions surrounding Katherine as to whether her marriage to Arthur was consummated. Many people believe that it was consummated and that it was a noble lie of Katherine as her purpose was to be Queen of England. But with recent research by Giles Tremlett and Patrick Williams it now looks certain that her marriage to Arthur was not consummated. I really like how Alison has portrayed this in the book.

Honestly out of all the books I have read, I highly recommend this book. Especially if you want to learn more about Katherine of Aragon. Of course you have to take into account that things they say may not be quite accurate but as Alison has said “I have kept closely to the historical record” and she really has!

Absolutely brilliant! I could go on and on about how wonderful this is but go and check out for yourselves!
