Overview

War made her queen of England. Her love for a Welshman made her immortal.

Best known as Henry V's Agincourt bride from Shakespeare's "Henry V," Catherine de Valois was an extraordinary woman of faith, courage, and conviction in an age of politically powerful women.

A younger daughter to King Charles VI of France terrorized by his mental illness, Princess Catherine survived the ravages of his schizophrenia, a civil war at home, and King Henry's war with France to become one of England's most fascinating and courageous queens. Her children by her second marriage and their descendants changed the landscape of England and Scotland forever, forging together the United Kingdom.

Meet the real Catherine behind the Tudor and Stuart dynasties in this beautiful biography for the entire family.

Includes a War of the Roses family tree, detailed timeline, and detailed suggested reading list/bibliography.
