Summary

Summary

This is the first critical edition of the text which chronicles Katharine of Aragon's arrival in England, her triumphant entry into London (1501), her marriage to Prince Arthur, the tournament held in honor of that marriage, and Prince Arthur's funeral a few months later. Providing a complete picture of the state of English court drama at a crucial point in its development, it casts the historical materials into the form of medieval romance, occasionally borrowing cadences from Malory to describe Katharine, Arthur, and Henry VII. No other contemporary source offers such a vivid account of the social history, visual arts, and drama at the beginning of the sixteenth century.
