The Constant Princess Trade Paperback More books from this author: See full terms and conditions and this month's choices. The daughter of Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand of Spain, year-old Katherine leaves behind her beloved home to forge a new life in a foreign land and take her place as Princess of Wales and, ultimately, Queen of England.
To Katherine's surprise, her marriage to Arthur is a passionate love match as well as a political union. As the Prince and Princess of Wales, they eagerly plan for their future reign -- until tragedy strikes five months into their marriage.
Arthur falls ill, and before he dies the young prince extracts a vow from his wife. She is to marry his brother, Harry, and become Queen of England. She is to rule England in Arthur's stead, fulfilling their dreams and her destiny. But to take the throne, Katherine must deny her true love and tell the world that she and Arthur never consummated their marriage.
The Constant Princess is the story of a young girl who was raised to be a queen, the lengths to which she goes to fulfill a deathbed promise, and the crucial lie that changed the course of history. The novel opens in Granada, Spain, as five-year-old Catalina witnesses her parents, Isabella and Ferdinand, conquer the last stronghold of the Moors in Spain. What does this chapter reveal about Catalina, as well as about her mother and their relationship?
In what ways did having this portrait of Catalina as a child help you better understand some of her later decisions and motivations? He is so fair and slight, he is like a page boy from one of the old romances" Why does Catalina's romantic view of Arthur disintegrate after their wedding?
How does their journey to Ludlow Castle -- and their first evening there when Catalina acquaints Arthur with some of the customs of her homeland -- become the turning point in their relationship? On his deathbed, Arthur asks Catalina to marry his brother and rule England in his place.
What prompts Arthur to ask this of Catalina?
Does Catalina promise Arthur for his sake or for her own? How does she justify telling the lie that makes it possible for her to wed Harry?
I know what is my duty and what I have to do" Why is Catalina so certain that it's God's will she become Queen of England? Is this conviction a result of her faith, her upbringing, or something else?
How is Catalina used as a political pawn by her parents? The Constant Princess By: Philippa Gregory. Be the first to write a review.
