Katherine grew up in a wealthy home and her family workde close with the royal by: 4. Katherine Parr is one of the lesser known of Henry’s wives, far from the dramatic triangle of Catherine of Aragon and Anne Boleyn, but this collection of her writings will remind historians that Parr was an extraordinary woman of letters and passions.”/5(12).   Katherine Parr: A Guided Tour of the Life and Thought of a Reformation Queen is an intimate look at an often-forgotten Protestant Reformer.

The life of Katherine Parr was one of drama, intrigue, danger, deceit, clandestine romance, scandal, tragedy and mystery. She came to a tragic end, and for three hundred years her burial site remained unknown. Katherine ruled England while Henry went to war against France. She was the first woman published in England under her own name.
