Description
The author of Jane Boleyn: The True Story of the Infamous Lady Rochford, Julia Fox here gives us a fascinating dual portrait of Katherine and Juana, the daughters of Spain's King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, groomed for positions of power and influence. Yet Katherine of Aragon would be remembered by history as the tragic first wife of Henry VIII, and the catalyst for England's split with Catholicism, while Juana—wife of Philip of Burgundy and mother of the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V—would become "Juana the Mad," noted for such erratic behavior as keeping her late husband's coffin beside her for years.

"Julia Fox's vivid and sympathetic book now shows us [Katherine of Aragon's] life and marriage in another context, setting it against the even more terrifying story of her elder sister, Juana.... As Fox re-creates Juana and Katherine's lives in colorful detail, she manages to draw out the spirit and resilience of two women fearfully abused in a very cruel, very male world."—Spectator (London)
