The Life and Tragedy of Catherine Howard at the Court of Henry VIII
Borrow
England July 1540: Anne of Cleves is out. Thomas Cromwell is to be executed and, in the countryside, an aristocratic teenager named Catherine Howard prepares to become fifth wife to the increasingly unpredictable monarch.In the five centuries since her death, Catherine Howard has been dismissed as `a wanton', `inconsequential' or a naiive victim of her ambitious family, but the story of her rise and fall offers not only a terrifying and compelling story of an attractive, vivacious young woman thrown onto the shores of history thanks to a king's infatuation, but an intense portrait of Tudor monarchy in microcosm.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Surprising revelations abound in this audio biography of Catherine Howard, the fifth wife of Henry VIII, including a recently discovered confession of her offenses in her own words. Narrator Jenny Funnell does a good job of creating sixteenth-century English life for listeners so that they understand the life of women in this time period and, in particular, the life of a daughter of nobility. Funnell uses a sympathetic voice to portray Catherine as a real person who was beautiful but misguided by the people she trusted. Sixteen months after becoming queen she would be charged with adultery and high treason, and led to the executioner's block. Overall, this is a good listening experience for Tudor enthusiasts.
