Description
The Queens of Henry VIII: Divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived:
CATHERINE OF ARAGON the Catholic Spanish Princess, who suffered years of miscarriages and still births and yet failed to produce a son... She was the mother of Mary Tudor;
ANNE BOLEYN, the pretty, clever, French-educated Protestant with whom Henry Vlll was madly in love - for a brief period. She was the mother of Elizabeth 1;
JANE SEYMOUR the demure and submissive contrast to Anne Boleyn's vampish style. She died soon after giving birth to the longed-for son (Edward VI);
ANNE OF CLEVES, 'the Flanders mare': He was horrified because she was so plain and she was appalled because he was so fat... ;
CATHERINE HOWARD, the flirtatious teenager whose adulteries made a fool of the ageing king;
CATHERINE PARR, the shrewd Protestant bluestocking who outlived him.
