    It’s interesting that Henry had a long investigation into the behaviour of Kathryn Howard, rather than immediately thinking it was true from the beginning.

    The poor old Duchess and her family must have been terrified, although all things considered, they were lucky to eventually escape with their lives.

      Yes I can feel for all Catherine’s family, especially her poor grandmother, she was old by Tudor standards and did not need all that worry, it must have been so stressful, misprision of treason was a serious crime and one can just see the poor lady being subjected to all that continuous questioning, the terror in her eyes, her quavering voice, the men must have been quite brutal with her, in her mind she was most likely cursing her granddaughter, if only she hadn’t been such a hussy, she her son and daughter were extremely lucky to escape with their lives, but it must have been such a traumatic time for the Howard family, and the death of the queen meant they were all tarnished with the scandal, there could not have been any festivities that Christmas at court or within the Howard household.
