Catherine de Valois
Shakespeare was wrong!
In 1401, Catherine de Valois seemed like just another daughter to King Charles VI of France and his wife, Queen Isabeau of Bavaria, doomed to live forever in obscurity. That is until she became the excuse King Henry V of England needed in order to declare war with France.
Caught between her father's mental illness and both a civil war at home and war with England, Catherine found the eyes of the Christian world fixed upon her.
Shakespeare would tell her story in his grand history play "Henry V," concealing the real woman she was.
Discover the real Catherine and how this young woman of courage, conviction, and peace changed not just her 15th century world, but the lives of every British and American woman and man born since.
Based on primary source accounts supplemented by research from the BBC.
