Catherine of Aragon was Queen of England from June 1509 until May 1533 as the first wife of King Henry VIII; she was previously Princess of Wales as the wife of Henry’s elder brother, Arthur.
The daughter of Isabella I of Castile and Ferdinand II of Aragon, Catherine was three years old when she was betrothed to Arthur, Prince of Wales. They married in 1501, but Arthur died five months later. Catherine subsequently married Arthur’s younger brother, the recently ascended Henry VIII, in 1509.
Catherine will be portrayed by Craig Schermer, a graduate of John Carroll University with a major in Russian Imperial History. He has studied the First Ladies and other women of historical significance most of his life and spent nearly ten years as the historian for the National First Ladies’ Library in Canton, Ohio.
Mr. Schermer’s charming and informative portrayal of Catherine of Aragon will be held on Sunday, February 16, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. A reception with light refreshments will follow his hour-long presentation and give attendees an opportunity to meet Mr. Schermer and ask questions.
