Katharine of Aragon Festival:
A celebration of the life of the first wife of Henry V111, who was buried at Peterborough Cathedral on 29th January 1536.
Character and Conscience: A Dynasty of Catholic Queens
A talk by historian , author and broadcaster Dr Suzannah Lipscomb
Katharine of Aragon was both daughter and mother to important queens-regnant, yet there is often too much focus on the biological functions of her role as queen-consort. This talk aims to re-evaluate Katharine instead as a spirited woman of integrity and faith, and to examine her in the context of the legacy of her mother, Isabella 1 of Spain, and her daughter, Mary 1 of England.
