About this item

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERThe history books have cast Katherine of Aragon, the first queen of King Henry VIII of England, as the ultimate symbol of the Betrayed Woman, cruelly tossed aside in favor of her husbands seductive mistress, Anne Boleyn. Katherines sister, Juana of Castile, wife of Philip of Burgundy and mother of the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, is portrayed as Juana the Mad, whose erratic behavior included keeping her beloved late husbands coffin beside her for years. But historian Julia Fox, whose previous work painted an unprecedented portrait of Jane Boleyn, Annes sister, offers deeper insight in this first dual biography of Katherine and Juana, the daughters of Spains Ferdinand and Isabella, whose family ties remained strong despite their separation.
