Thus, bestselling author Philippa Gregory introduces one of her most unforgettable heroines: Katherine of Aragon. Known to history as the Queen who was pushed off her throne by Anne Boleyn, here is a Katherine the world has forgotten: the enchanting princess that all England loved. First married to Henry VIII’s older brother, Arthur, Katherine’s passion turns their arranged marriage into a love match; but when Arthur dies, the merciless English court and her ambitious parents — the crusading King and Queen of Spain — have to find a new role for the widow. Ultimately, it is Katherine herself who takes control of her own life by telling the most audacious lie in English history, leading her to the very pinnacle of power in England.

Set in the rich beauty of Moorish Spain and the glamour of the Tudor court, The Constant Princess presents a woman whose constancy helps her endure betrayal, poverty, and despair, until the inevitable moment when she steps into the role she has prepared for all her life: Henry VIII’s Queen, Regent, and commander of the English army in their greatest victory against Scotland.

    Ah, Philippa Gregory. You lured me in with The Other Boleyn Girl, which I knew was kind of trashy, but still couldn’t put it down. TOBG was like eating cupcakes while watching SVU re-runs. Paradise. The Constant Princess, however, was like eating Doritos while watching Grey’s Anatomy. I really wanted to like it, but really, it just made me want to barf. The problem, dear Philippa, is that just as Henry VIII liked his ladies, you seem to love italics. You write whole pages in italics, which in my

    Those of you familiar with all things Tudor already know the basics of the long-suffering Katherine of Aragon and the husband who dumped her when she couldn’t produce a male heir. Those who aren’t might consider this review rather spoilerish so consider yourself warned.

    Those of you familiar with all things Tudor already know the basics of the long-suffering Katherine of Aragon and the husband who dumped her when she couldn’t produce a male heir. Those who aren’t might consider this review rather spoilerish so consider yourself warned. That said, since the author skims through a big chunk of the latter part of Katherine’s life and “The King’s Great Matter”, I wouldn’t recommend this for newbies as you’ll be scratching your head at the end wondering what in the heck you missed. Just be warned, this is Tudor history PG style so expect historical accuracy at your own peril…

    In this book, Gregory purports that the marriage between Catalina (Katherine) of Spain and Arthur Tudor was a love match and their union was most definitely consummated – a secret they kept from everyone. When Arthur realizes he’ll not survive the sweating sickness, he commands Catalina to marry his younger brother Henry, so that she can still become Queen of England as they’d always dreamed. Catalina is determined to stay *constant* to her beloved’s commands, but there’s a lot of political turmoil ahead of her, especially over the fact of whether the marriage was consummated,

    “I shall keep my promise. I shall be constant to my husband and to my destiny. And I shall plan and plot and consider how I shall conquer this misfortune and be what I was born to be. How I shall be the pretender who becomes queen.”

    “At Arthur’s request I told the greatest lie a woman has ever told, and I will tell it to the very grave…He asked me to say that we had never been lovers and he commanded me to marry his brother and be queen…I was constant to my promise.”

    But you all know the *rest of the story* so I’ll not rehash it one more time, I’m just here to discuss the reading experience. Whether or not Katherine and Arthur consummated the marriage or not is a subject of debate and despite my previous conviction that Katherine spoke the truth about it during “The King’s Great Matter”, I was willing to keep an open mind (kind of). However, I didn’t buy into the twu wuv fowever between Arthur and Catalina, nor did I buy into Henry VIII’s portrayal as a bit of an ignorant dolt with no business sitting on the throne of England,

    “He is bright and clever, perhaps even as quick witted as Arthur. But where Arthur had been trained to think, had been educated as a king from birth, they let this second son slide by on his charm and his ready tongue.”

    Bah. Worse yet, towards the end the author appears to run out of steam (and page count) and makes a last minute push to finish in a big hurry as Katherine’s latter years as queen and the whole business of “The King’s Great Matter” is barely touched upon. Add to that the switches to the first person narrative (Katherine’s) appear much too often and become increasingly annoying and soporific. Seriously, did we need to have her recount actual dialog with others, thus telling us what’s happened instead of using the third person and showing us? As for Katherine’s voice itself, she’s very full of herself and her own self-importance and makes for a rather unsympathetic main character, particularly over her disdain for Henry VIII. Then there’s the portrayal of Henry VII. Why, oh why does he always have to be portrayed lusting after the main female character from his very first sight of her?

    The book started off all right, when the switches to Katherine’s narrative were short and well spaced, but by the end I was nodding off at them and was praying for the book to end, and I’d only recommended it for PG fans only. If you are looking for a well rounded, historically accurate look at Katherine of Aragon I suggest you look elsewhere. Oh, and before anyone gets in a tizzy as to why this non-PG fan decided to read another, this is for a group read for the European Royalty Group at Goodreads. I expect lively discussions.

    FTC disclosure. I obtained this book from my county library.

    I’m going to start out by saying 1) I love historical fiction and 2) I loved Margaret George’s, The Autobiography of Henry VIII with notes by his fool Will Sommers (one of my fave books of all time).

    So when I have the opportunity to go back to Kind Henry VIII’s court I do! I’ve read the Other Boleyn Girl, I’ve read Elizabeth I by Rosamund Miles to learn about the time after Henry VIII, etc.

    Therefore I was really looking forward to learning more about Henry’s first wife, Katherine of Aragon.

    The Constant Princess, is the story of Katherine of Aragon or Catalina, Infanta of Spain. It covers Catalina’s childhood in Spain, her betrothal to Arthur (Henry’s older brother), their marriage, his death, her agonizing wait to convince the King of England that marrying her to his 2nd son was the best solution to all the problems of dowry, etc, and the early years of her marriage to Henry and her rule as Queen of England.

    I found the beginning part about her childhood and her marriage to Arthur interesting. Her wait to marry Henry was as agonizing for the reader as it was for her (this section became very repetitive), and then the end was incredibly rushed. The author took 400 pages to cover her life up until her 3rd pregnancy and then skipped 13 years of her reign and the turmoil that became her relationship with Henry as he decided to divorce her and marry Anne Boleyn (I think that would have been very interesting material to read about) and then devoted 1 1/2 pages to the court hearing about annulling her marriage to Henry. It was almost as if she got tired of writing about her….

    All in all I thought this book was just OK.
