Catherine Curzon is an author and royal historian of the 18th century.

Her work has been featured on HistoryExtra.com, the official website of BBC History Magazine, and in publications such as All About History, Who Do You Think You Are?, and Jane Austen's Regency World. She has spoken at venues including Kenwood House, Wellington College, the Royal Pavilion, the National Maritime Museum, the Hurlingham Club and Dr Johnson's House. Her first play, Being Mr Wickham, co-authored by Adrian Lukis, premiered at Bath in 2019.

Catherine holds a Master's degree in Film and when not dodging the furies of the guillotine, can be found cheering on the mighty Terriers. She lives in Yorkshire atop a ludicrously steep hill.
