To me, Katherine is very tangible figure from 500 years ago.  If you visit Hampton Court Palace today, where I work as Chief Curator, you yourself can walk along the so-called ‘Haunted Gallery’ leading to the Chapel.  The legend goes that Katherine got wind of the accusations made against her that day, and that her ‘ghost’ comes running nightly along the gallery towards the Chapel in order to beg her husband to spare her life before being dragged back to her rooms by the guards.

In reality, despite any efforts she may have made, Katherine never saw her husband again before her execution less than four months later.  I have never see the ‘ghost’, but there genuinely is one peculiar spot at the turn in the gallery where, with no obvious explanation, you can feel the temperature drop.
