Review: Katherine Parr, THE LAST WIFE of King Henry VIII, Revealed as an Early Supporter of Women's Equality
by Shari Barrett - Jan 20, 2018

By now, we all know that new laws have been enacted which allow the first born, whether male or female, of the reigning heir to the British monarchy to be named that person's successor.

Parr then took it upon herself to have his daughters Mary and Elizabeth (Bess) added to the line of succession should their younger half-brother and heir apparent, Edward, die without any legal heirs to assume the crown. That move led to advancing their status as women of royal privilege as more than just a piece of property to be used as a bargaining chip for royal alliances through marriage. (more...)
