Shelves: audio , history-quasi , romance-historic Moran also wrote Nefertiti and Cleopatra's Daughter, but I only read this one. Set in ancient Egypt, The Heretic Queen is an odd mixture, because it felt sometimes exactly like a romance and a sexy one and other times like a historical narrative with some liberally embellished and possibly fabricated history. For romance readers, it might be a nice cross-genre piece, since it bridges both worlds. For those who like more history, and only the straight dope, this will disappoint. According to this author, Nefertari is the niece of the dead and yet still reviled Queen Nefertiti. Try keeping those names straight. They abolished Egypt's pantheon of gods and tried to force a religious revolution, a type of monotheism where all must worship one god only, Aten, the sun disc. When the story begins, young Nefertari is about 10, and her infamous aunt is dead, but her family name is still muddier than the Nile riverbank we are reminded of this ad nauseum. So, the courageous and intelligent young princess comes in for a lot of belittlement and bullying. Showing her solid core, and aided by her astounding facility for languages, she holds her own in the competitive and backstabbing classrooms and courts of the king. Her greatest wish is to marry Ramesses. But what are the chances, with her family rap? Nefer does exactly as her wise mentors Woserit, high priestess, and Paser advise to gain public favor and personal sex appeal, so she can become an acceptable candidate for queen.

Subjects Fiction Literature Historical Fiction. In ancient Egypt, a forgotten princess must overcome her family's past and remake history.

The winds of change are blowing through Thebes. A devastating palace fire has killed the Eighteenth Dynasty's royal family—all with the exception of Nefertari, the niece of the reviled former queen, Nefertiti. The girl's deceased family has been branded as heretical, and no one in Egypt will speak their names.

A relic of a previous reign, Nefertari is pushed aside, an unimportant princess left to run wild in the palace. But this changes when she is taken under the wing of the Pharaoh' s aunt, then brought to the Temple of Hathor, where she is educated in a manner befitting a future queen.

Catherine Parr - Wikipedia

Mary became furious at his forwardness and tasteless actions and refused to help. Mary even went as far as asking her half-sister, Lady Elizabeth, not to interact with Queen Catherine any further. A rivalry developed between Catherine and his wife, her own former lady-in-waiting, Anne Seymour, Duchess of Somerset , which became particularly acute over the matter of Catherine's jewels.

Instead she, as the wife of the protector, should be the one to wear them.

Eventually, the Duchess won the argument, which left her relationship with Catherine permanently damaged; the relationship between the two Seymour brothers also worsened as a result, since Thomas saw the whole dispute as a personal attack by his brother on his social standing.

The book was a success and widely praised. In March , at the age of 35, Catherine became pregnant. This pregnancy was a surprise as Catherine had not conceived during her first three marriages.

During this time, Seymour began to take an interest in Lady Elizabeth. Seymour had reputedly plotted to marry her before marrying Catherine, and it was reported later that Catherine discovered the two in an embrace.

On a few occasions before the situation risked getting completely out of hand, according to the deposition of Kat Ashley , Catherine appears not only to have acquiesced in episodes of horseplay , but actually to have assisted her husband.

Elizabeth immediately wrote a letter to the Queen and Seymour after she left Chelsea. The letter demonstrates a sort of remorse.

Kat Ashley, whose deposition was given after Catherine had died and Seymour had been arrested for another attempt at marrying Lady Elizabeth, had developed a crush on Seymour during her time at Chelsea and actually encouraged her charge to "play along. The dowager queen promised to provide education for her. It was there that Catherine would spend the last few months of her pregnancy and the last summer of her life.

Catherine died on 5 September , at Sudeley Castle in Gloucestershire , from what is thought to have been "childbed fever". Catherine's funeral was held on 7 September She was buried in St. She is the only royal to be buried in a private residence. Catherine's other jewels were kept in a coffer with five drawers at Sudeley and this was sent to the Tower of London on 20 April , and her clothes and papers followed in May.

The last mention of Mary Seymour on record is on her second birthday, and although stories circulated that she eventually married and had children, most historians believe she died as a child at Grimsthorpe Castle in Lincolnshire. The coffin was identified by a lead plate with an inscription on the coffin. Reportedly the flesh on one of her arms was still white and moist.

After taking a few locks of her hair, he closed the coffin and returned it to the grave. The coffin was opened a few more times in the next ten years and in some drunken men buried it upside down and in a rough way. When the coffin was officially reopened in , nothing but a skeleton remained.

Her remains were then moved to the tomb of Lord Chandos whose family owned the castle at that time. The painting has recently been re-identified as Catherine Parr, with whose name it was originally associated. The full-length format was very rare in portraits of this date, and was usually used only for very important sitters.

Lady Jane Grey, although of royal blood, was a relatively obscure child of eight when this was painted circa ; it was to be another eight years before the short-lived attempt at placing her on the throne. The distinctive crown-shaped jewel the sitter wears can be traced to an inventory of jewels that belonged to Catherine Parr, and the cameo beads appear to have belonged to Catherine Howard , from whom they would have passed to her successor as queen.

Charles Laughton played the king, with actress Everley Gregg appearing as Catherine. The film makes no attempt to depict the historical Parr's character, instead portraying the Queen for comic effect as an over-protective nag.

In this, Catherine's love of religion and intellectual capabilities were highlighted. Crutchley reprised her role as Catherine Parr for the first episode of the 6-part follow-up series on the life of Elizabeth I in , Elizabeth R.
