    Get this from a library! Henry VIII and his court, or, Catharine Parr: a historical novel. [L Mühlbach; Henry Niles Pierce]. Catherine Parr’s close brush with arrest and eventual “examination” by Gardiner and Wriothesley is a subject that has long puzzled me. This analysis paints a clear picture of the entire scenario. taking into account the political and religious facades occurring at the Court of King Henry VIII during this historical period.

      The original plan was that Catherine was to marry Suffolk’s son, Henry, but after Mary Tudor died in , Suffolk married Catherine himself on 7 September When they married Catherine was 14 and Suffolk was The couple had two sons, Henry and Charles. Catherine spent a lot of time at court during the reign of Henry VIII and Kateryn Parr.   Unfortuntately she failed in both attempts. The book is in fact rather dull. The exciting story is lost in detail and the reader is left wishing for a page "Short Version of Henry VIII King and Court" - that book would indeed be immensely entertaining. As for "A Treaty on the History of Henry VIII" - well, well, well/5().
