Katharine Parr was so more than the wife who ‘survived’. A passionate woman, unusually well educated for her time, she was ardent reformer and the author of three books – the first woman in England to publish under her own name. She had four husbands, and she was close enough to the turbulent events of the Tudor Reformation to experience their adverse impact. On more than one occasion, she faced real danger. She made an excellent queen to Henry VIII, even though her heart belonged to another. The warmth of her personality shines across the centuries from her letters and the praise of others. She was much more than just a nurse to the ageing King, who cared deeply for her. And yet, when Katharine finally found love herself, it ended in tragedy.
