The Six Wives of Henry VIII

The Six Wives of Henry VIII have 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. Clicking on the name of each queen will take you to her post. Enjoy!

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.
