The only child of Baron Willoughby, Katherine Willoughby (1519-1580) became Duchess of Suffolk on her marriage to Charles Brandon, Henry VIII's closest friend. She became a powerful woman, close to the king, and there were rumours, even before Brandon's death in 1545, that Henry and Katherine had been 'masking and visiting' together. This book describes the life of privilege, danger and religious commitment of a great Tudor lady - one who nearly became the seventh wife of Henry VIII.
