Publisher's Summary

"The Fifth Queen" trilogy is a series of connected historical novels by English novelist Ford Madox Ford. It consists of three novels: "The Fifth Queen; And How She Came to Court" (1906), "Privy Seal" (1907) and "The Fifth Queen Crowned" (1908), which present a fictionalized account of Katharine Howard's arrival at the Court of Henry VIII, her eventual marriage to the king, and her death. The "Fifth Queen" trilogy has an omniscient narrator.

Katharine Howard is introduced in the first book as a devout Roman Catholic, impoverished, young noblewoman escorted by her fiery cousin Thomas Culpeper. By accident, she comes to the attention of the king, in a minor way at first, is helped to a position as a lady in waiting for the then bastard Lady Mary, Henry's eldest daughter, by her old Latin tutor Nicholas Udal, a spy for Thomas Cromwell. As Katharine becomes involved with the many calculating, competing, and spying members of Henry VIII's Court, she gradually rises, almost against her will, in Court.
