During her life four Kings ruled in England, two claimants to the throne invaded (one successfully)- ordinary people revolted and marched on London, plague and disease stalked the land and anyone who might be a threat to the Tudors was imprisoned or executed.This is the story of Katherine of York, Princess of England: the daughter, sister and aunt of Kings. Daughter of Edward IV, sister of the missing Edward V, sister-in-law of Henry VII and aunt of Henry VIII. Katherine is amongst the last of the Yorkist royal bloodline. She grows up at Court: an inconvenient relative of the Crown. It is also the story of her friends, John Kayleway the sworn protector of the Lancastrian William Courtenay, son of the Earl of Devon and Joan Tregarthin, a distant relation and Cornish heiress. We follow the four friends as their life stories unfold from Bosworth Field to the beginning of the reign of Henry VIII.
