Have your say

Katherine of Aragon: The True Queen, is the first in a series of novels about the wives of Henry VIII by Alison Weir – and you can win a copy of this bestseller in our Waterstone’s book of the week competition.

A Spanish princess, raised to be modest, obedient and devout ... and destined to be an English queen.

At sixteen years old, Catalina is alone among strangers. Six weeks from home across treacherous seas, everything is different: the language, the food and the weather.

And Catalina can find no comfort in any of it. She misses her mother, she mourns her lost brother and she cannot trust even those assigned to protect her.

We now know her as Katherine of Aragon, the first of Henry’s queens. History tells us how she died, and this captivating novel shows how she lived. It is also a Waterstone’s limited edition, with an exclusive guide to Katherine’s castles.

Katherine of Aragon: The True Queen is the first in a series of books by best-selling author Alison Weir about the wives of King Henry VIII.
