    The heroic and dignified first wife of Henry VIII, Katharine of Aragon was cast aside for reasons of dynastic ambition, yet never relinquished her religion or principles. Professor Williams's biography of Katharine, the first to make full use of Spanish archives, presents a new portrait of the Catholic queen; and establishes that her marriage to Henry's elder brother Arthur was never consummated. It thus forces a reappraisal of Henry, his marriages and the origins of the Reformation in England.
