Description
An Elizabethan historian and the biographer of Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, and Elizabeth Tudor, Lacey Baldwin Smith here gives us the tragic life of Catherine Howard, Henry VIII's fifth wife, beheaded in 1542 for playing Henry at his own game of adultery. Still a teenager, the vivacious and flirty Catherine Howard was an unsuitable bride for the elderly and fat Henry VIII. She had come to his attention at court as a lady-in-waiting to his fourth wife, Anne of Cleves, and he was soon besotted. Never consummating his recent marriage to Anne, he divorced her and married for the fifth time on July 28, 1540. Having "excellently caught the atmosphere of the Tudor age" (Observer, London), Smith narrates the rise and fall of the woman who cuckolded the king of England.
