As Henry’s sixth and final queen, Katharine Parr is torn between love and duty. With secret beliefs that could lead to an untimely end and affection for another that must stay hidden from her new king, hers is a powerful tale of a woman who rose boldly to every challenge life brought her.

Throughout this hour-long talk, Weir sifts through the myths and the history books to introduce us to a warm, kindly heroine and an extraordinary historical figure.
