THEME BY MARAUDERSMAPS
This blog is entirely devoted to my obsession with Catherine of Aragon.

Mostly, I will be posting images of her from The Tudors (as Maria Doyle Kennedy is my preference in the portrayal of Catherine.

I may reblog other images and items relating to her. Whether it be from TV, movies, or historical documents.
Icould also reblog some non-COA stuff. As sometimes a great Anne Boleyn or Henry VIII post will catch my eye, and demand a reblog.

Questions, comments, concerns? Feel free to ASK.

The Lady Katherine is a proud, stubborn woman of very high courage. If she took it into her head to take her daughter’s part, she could quite easily take the field, muster a great array, and wage against me a war as fierce as any her mother Isabella ever waged in Spain.

Sir, I beseech you for all the love that hath been between us, and for the love of God, let me have justice and right. Take of me some pity and compassion, for I am a poor woman, and a stranger, born out of your dominion. I have here no assured friend and much less indifferent counsel. I flee to you, as to the head of justice within this realm. Alas, Sir, where have I offended you? Or what occasion have you of displeasure, that you intend to put me from you? I take God and all the world to witness that I have been to you a true, humble and obedient wife, ever comfortable to your will and pleasure.

For my part I pardon you everything and I wish to devoutly pray to God that He will pardon you also. For the rest, I commend unto you our daughter Mary, beseeching you to be a good father unto her, as I have heretofore desired.

♔ “Henry’s six wives were each expected to be Queen, lover, companion, and mother to a Tudor dynasty. Most failed, and for them, there was rejection or execution. But their story has become one of the great historical myths, and one of their children, Elizabeth, England’s greatest ruler.”
