Abstract:

If Katherine Howard had not been born both poor and beautiful, or had she not been adopted by her grandmother, the Dowager Duchess of Norfolk, she might indeed have wed her childhood playmate, Thomas Culpepper. But left to run wild in her grandmother's licentious household, Katherine was introduced to secret pleasures.

When the aging King Henry VIII, desperate for a strong male heir, chose Katherine as his fifth wife, her tragic destiny was sealed.
