The first of Henry VIII's wives who refused to give into the King's demand of a divorce. Instead she kept fighting but in the end the divorce came through and she was no longer Queen of England. She spent the last part of her life alone without being permitted to see her daughter and eventually died from cancer - still sticking to her convictions.

Interview with Giles Tremlett on new Katherine of Aragon biography

Some time back, I discovered that a new biography on Katherine of Aragon was in the works. Intrigued by the prospect of a new study on this figure – it has been a while since we have had a biography on her! – I contacted the author, Giles Tremlett. As I was unable to attend his talk at this year’s Cheltenham Literature Festival, I was particularly thrilled to receive a reply. I would like to thank Mr Tremlett for answering my queries and allowing me to post this mini-interview here…
