“Divorced, Beheaded, Died, Divorced, Beheaded, Survived”

King Henry VIII
When we contemplate on medieval English Queens the six wives of Henry VIII come to mind. This topic has been covered many times before but we want to give a concise description of each wife to review for those who know the story and pique your interest if you don’t. So, lets begin……

Catherine of Aragon Henry VIII was married to this proud Spanish princess longer than any of his other wives.

Anne Boleyn Henry moved mountains to marry her and then had her beheaded.

Jane Seymour Jane was the first wife to have a son who lived and when she died the only wife he buried as a Queen.

Anne of Cleves The luckiest of Henry VIII’s wives.

Catherine Howard Henry’s “rose without a thorn”. But was she really without thorns?

Katherine Parr A very refined lady who loved the New Religion and outlasted Henry.
