First published in 1941, eminent European historian Garrett Mattingly's Catherine of Aragon was the first real biography of the youngest daughter of Ferdinand and Isabella who married Henry VIII. She loved England and England loved her from the day she landed--an outwardly brave, inwardly scared fifteen-year-old--to the day of her death. Henry loved her longer and more loyally than he ever loved anyone else, lived in wedded peace with her for eighteen years, and in uneasy friendship for four more after he had started proceedings for divorce. She loved Henry better than anyone else ever did, and found in her love the courage to oppose him more unflinchingly than anyone else ever dared to do. The clash of their formidable wills changed the course of history. This vivid, dramatic biography, with its smallest detail resting solidly on painstaking research, discloses a new English heroine and presents the whole epoch of Henry VIII in a new light, startlingly revealing and utterly convincing.… (mere)

I quit reading [Catherine of Aragon]. It wasn't that I didn't like the writing, or even the subject. It's just that I find I have a limited amount of "need to know" on this subject, and 146 pages filled it. I learned some interesting things about relations between countries at that time. I learned that she deserved attention, being a female ambassador before females were considered appropriate for that job, and she did her part well. She held her own in a very precarious position. I learned that Henry the Eighth may not have been all evil, at least not in his youth, and his childhood makes his later picadillos more understandable if not right. I learned that he had what seemed to be a genuine affection for Katherine (the author chose to spell it with a "C", but she and most documents of the time spelled her name with a "K" and then whatever letters they felt like after the "K" depending on their mood apparently). Anyway, I do recommend this book to anyone who is interested in knowing more about the time and people of the Tudor dynasty. ( )

This is a nice facsimile edition of a nearly 70 year old biography (though the genealogical tables are unclear and could have usefully been redrawn). It is very well written and a joy to read, though it shows its age in its fairly stock descriptions of characters based around simple physical and personality traits. Anne Boleyn, in particular, is allowed no redeeming feature and is an archetypal scheming "other woman". Catherine is portrayed extremely sympathetically, her only drawback being a certain naïvety. So one must be aware of a certain datedness, but nevertheless a very good read, particularly in its description of Henry's increasing tyranny as the break with Rome unfolds. ( )

Reviewed Jan 1999 Detail, Detail, Detail! What a woman she was....what it...runs through her life adventure. I thought I knew a lot about her from earlier readings but this bio really packs in the stories and details. At times the detail becomes too much and the book drags on. But if you overlook these areas the rest that is left is exciting. Even knowing her history beforehand I still found parts where I was biting my lip in anticipation. The chapter headings written in Old English was a real nice touch. ( )

This biography of Henry VIII's first wife provides a different angle into Henry's world. It is conceivable that had Catherine been a different type person (less religious, less proud, less determined) England and therefore much of the USA could have been quite altered. Had Catherine retired meekly from the scene, Henry may not have broken with Rome. In addition, Catherine's personality manifested itself in her daughter, Mary (Bloody Mary). Mattingly handles his material well, drawing from a wide array of primary sources. ( )

Forward
Two things in her story have chiefly fascinated me: the way the decisions of persons by no means gifted with genius but strategically placed may influence the course of history, and the way that the divided loyalties common in thoughtful persons during a time of rapid change may affect their conduct in unexpected ways, and consequently give a twist, sometimes, to remote events.
