The young Spanish widow, Katharine of Aragon, has become the pawn between two powerful monarchies. Daughter of Ferdinand and Isabella of Spain, she is married for less than a year when the frail Prince Arthur of England passes away. The question of whether their marriage was ever consummated will decide both her fate and England's. But whilst England and Spain dispute her dowry, in the wings awaits her unexpected escape from poverty: Henry, Arthur's younger, more handsome brother - and unknowingly, the future King of England ~ Henry VIII. He alone has the power to restore her position, but at what sacrifice?
