Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Hi! Katherine of Aragon really was Henry's wife for so much longer than all the others put together, it seems strange that they get all the attention. Perhaps because his reign was historically defined by his efforts to divorce her.

[quote=""sisterofthemoon""] I suppose my love of this genre started when I was thirteen when I first read Anya Seaton's 'Katherine'. :) [/quote]

LOL! You fit right in! That's how many of us here got started with love for HF, too. Definitely me. Welcome to the forum, Sophia. You will find so many more ideas here.
