Editors Note A tale inspired by the life of Katharine of Aragon spans her childhood in Spain through her reign in England as Henry VIII's first wife, during which she is briefly married to sickly prince Arthur, falls deeply in love with Henry, and witnesses his destructive obsession with Anne Boleyn. Reprint. 40,000 first printing.
Editors Note 1 Released for the first time in decades, this international bestseller powerfully tells of the life of Katharine of Aragon, from her childhood in Spain to her reign and downfall in England as the first wife of Henry VII. A princess by birth and a queen by marriage, Katharine always held the highest aspirations for her life, never doubting a vision both she and her mother, Isabella of Spain, had of her becoming one of the great rulers of Europe.After a short-lived and childless marriage to sickly prince Arthur of England, Katharine finds herself handed down to his brother, the future king Henry VII, a handsome, passionate man with whom she forms a strong bond of mutual admiration and love. Their relationship seems ideal -- equals in status, ambition, and respect for each other.As the years go by, King Henry becomes consumed by greed, paranoia, and arrogance, with a roving eye that has settled on the young Anne Boleyn. It is this obsession that will lead to his destruction and the humiliation of Katharine, the woman he once would have done anything to protect, forever changing the face of English history and religion.Beloved by her fans and a queen of the genre, Norah Lofts wrote tales of royal Britain that have stood the test of time, and The King's Pleasure is now reissued for a new generation of adoring readers.
Editors Note 2 A tale inspired by the life of Katharine of Aragon describes her childhood in Spain, brief marriage to Prince Arthur, reign in England as Henry VIII's first wife, and witness to his destructive obsession with Anne Boleyn.
