Heck, even Henry’s sisters hated Anne.

While Mary, Dowager Queen of France ands Anne’s first royal mistress, didn’t like Anne. Margaret, Dowager Queen of Scotland with her own checkered marital history was more supportive. Of course, Margaret left England shortly after Katherine was widowed following Arthur’s death and Mary spent more time with her former sister-in-law and presumably was on a more personally friendly basis with her.

Actually Margaret left England shortly after her mother died Anyanka. She was escorted up to York, by her father’s men, among them I believe was the Earl of Bothwell who had acted as James’s the proxy bridegroom, and then from there was handed over to the Scots nobility who took her on to Edinburgh.

True.. I plead a heavy cold and meds..

The point I was trying to make was that Mary had far more time to form a relationship with Katherine than her sister who was married off fairly soon after Elizabeth’s death. As I’m not sure where KoA was following Elizabeth of York’s death nor while she acted as the Aragon Ambassador, I’m happy enough to accept that she was part of the family household of Henry VII along side his daughters and wards.
If any-one know exactly where KoA was during those years of 1501-09, I’d be intereasted in discovering if I was correct or not..

It's always bunnies.

Henry 7th placed KOA in the household of his mother, after a while, as she was in a kind of limbo land after Arthur died. Poor girl was negleted in a lot of ways. She was forced at one point to sell some of her plate and jewels just so she and the few servants she still had so she could eat. I believe she became the Ambassador to spain after De Pebula (excuse spelling) screwed up royally on a matter concerning her marriage to Henry junior and it was Katherine, who wrote to her father asking for him to be recalled and asks for a new ambassador. Ferdinand hit on the idea of naming her as his ambassador that I think was around 1504/5 and it was a good idea too I thought. She was perhaps treated with a little more regard and respect once she became the ambassador for Spain, than she was when she was Arthur’s widow.

I think by Ferdinand naming Kate as Ambassador was also a way of getting her off his back. He didn’t want the expence of sending another Ambassador to England, he got enough problems of his own, so who better to name than Kate as his Ambassador, she was already in England let England pick up the tab on looking after her.
