Plot Synopsis

THE SPANISH PRINCESS is a scripted drama series that tells the story of Catherine of Aragon from the point of view of the women, which also sheds light on a previously untold corner of history: the lives of people of color in 16th century London. Catherine of Aragon is the Princess of Spain, who has been promised the English throne all her life, in a marriage contract intended to forge an alliance between the two nations. She arrives in a rain-lashed England with her glorious and diverse court, including her ladies-in-waiting: Lina, a Spanish noble of African Iberian descent, and the sweet and free-spirited Rosa. When her new husband, Prince Arthur, dies suddenly, the throne seems lost to Catherine until she sets her sights on the new heir, Prince Harry, who will one day be King Henry VIII.

"Catherine of Aragon has generally been depicted negatively, as an unwanted and burdensome wife, so this story of her early years as a strong, driven young woman and shrewd political player is a fresh and untold tale. We are also especially pleased to be able to bring into the light the inspiring story of people of color in early Tudor England," said showrunners Emma Frost and Matthew Graham.

THE SPANISH PRINCESS premieres Sunday, May 5, 2019 at 8pm ET/PT on Starz.
