|Birth: ||1468, England|
Katherine was an illegitimate daughter of King Richard III of England.
She married William Herbert, 2nd Earl of Pembroke in 1484.
On the orders of Henry VII, Katharine was arrested at Raglan Castle immediately after the Battle of Stoke Field in June 1487 and apparently died prior to her cousin Elizabeth of York's coronation on 25 November 1487.
Katherine's brother John, an illegitimate son of Richard III, was executed in 1491. They were both half-siblings of Edward of Middleham, Prince of Wales.
The Ricardian’ 2014 has this article:’The Plantagenet in the Parish: the burial of Richard III’s daughter in medieval London’ by Christian Steer (pp 63-73). A 16th century herald from the College of Arms listed some 900 monuments in London churches. In St James Garlickhithe he noted ‘the countesse of huntyngdon ladie Herbert wtout a stone’. Ironically, in a way, he also noted the burial of several members of the Stanley family in the same church.
