"I am Catalina, Princess of Spain, daughter of the two greatest monarchs the world has ever known...and I will be Queen of England." Thus, bestselling author Philippa Gregory introduces one of her most unforgettable heroines: Katherine of Aragon. Known to history as the Queen who was pushed off her throne by Anne Boleyn, here is a Katherine the world has forgotten: the enchanting princess that all England loved. First married to Henry VIII's older brother, Arthur, Katherine's passion turns their arranged marriage into a love match; but when Arthur dies, the merciless English court and her ambitious parents -- the crusading King and Queen of Spain -- have to find a new role for the widow. Ultimately, it is Katherine herself who takes control of her own life by telling the most audacious lie in English history, leading her to the very pinnacle of power in England. Set in the rich beauty of Moorish Spain and the glamour of the Tudor court, The Constant Princess presents a woman whose constancy helps her endure betrayal, poverty, and despair, until the inevitable moment when she steps into the role she has prepared for all her life: Henry VIII's Queen, Regent, and commander of the English army in their greatest victory against Scotland.

Absolutely enjoyable. There's so much I didn't know about Katherine of Aragorn. Vivid descriptions of Granada and the Alahambra. It's been a while since I actually wanted to travel somewhere instantly just to see it, and this book's done it! Katherine's life was a difficult one, but she managed to f...

Absolutely compelling to see what Katherine/Cataline went through in her life. Philippa Gregory has a very unique writing style and can weave together a great story while still remaining somewhat faithful to the original histories. But boy was Katherine annoying. No wonder Arthur died just to get ...

4.0 The Constant Princess (Boleyn)
This book was actually more substantial than I was expecting. I found the characters to be well rounded, and all of the main characters had some good character development throughout the course of the novel. The novel covered a large span of time, but it didn't feel rushed or unbelieveable, as the...
