Katharine Parr was so much more than the wife who ‘survived’. She was an ambitious and highly intelligent woman – a feminist before her time, an active patron of the arts, a champion of reform and Henry VIII’s great passion.


Often marginalised in the story of Henry’s wives, she was in fact hugely influential and a committed player of power politics. She lived and died locally; her remains lie entombed in the church at Sudeley Castle.


Historians Alison Weir (Six Tudor Queens: Katharine Parr) and Sarah Gristwood (The Tudors in Love) explore how Katharine has been portrayed through the ages and set her in her proper place in history.
