    The sixth and last queen of Henry VIII, Catherine Parr (1512-1548) is traditionally portrayed as a matronly and dutiful figure, who brought domestic tranquillity and stability to Henry's final years. Norton's biography shows the other sides of Catherine - the intelligent young widow who had survived two arranged marriages before the king's demands prevented her from marrying her lover, Thomas Seymour; and the widowed queen whose marriage to Seymour ended in the heartbreak of his affair with Princess Elizabeth.
