"... an angel is like you, Kate." queen consort of England (1420-22), wife of Henry V, king of England, and daughter of Charles VI, king of France, born in Paris.
When she was 12 years old, Henry V renewed the negotiations begun by his father for a marriage with Catherine. Henry demanded a large dowry and the French regions of Aquitaine and Normandy. The proposition was rejected, and in 1415 Henry invaded France and forced compliance with his terms.
When he married Catherine in Troyes, France, in June 1420, he received the provinces claimed, the regency of France during the life of Charles, and the right to succeed to the French throne after Charles's death.
In February 1421 Catherine was crowned at Westminster Abbey, and in December she bore a son, later King Henry VI.
After the death of Henry V in 1422, Catherine's union with the Welsh squire Owen Tudor produced four children. One of her sons, Edmund Tudor, earl of Richmond (1430?-56), married Margaret Beaufort; their son became Henry VII, the first Tudor
king of England.
