KING HENRY VIII’s wives
King Henry VIII This monarch was 18 years old when he became the English King. Henry VIII had many reasons for marrying so many times: to have a son and heir to the throne. He was extremely fond of show and display.
Catherine of Aragon When Henry became the king, he married Catherine of Aragon. She was the daughter of the King of Spain and the widow of Henry’s elder brother Arthur. They were married for 18 years and had one daughter, Mary. But Henry wanted a son and also he fancied Anne Boleyn, so he decided to divorce Catherine.
Anne Boleyn Henry married Anne Boleyn in 1533. She had a girl, Elizabeth, but no sons. Henry soon got fed up with Anne, so he arrested her on charges of being a witch- she had 6 fingers on her left hand. To be on the safe side Henry also accused her of meeting other men. In 1536 Anne Boleyn was beheaded.
Jane Seymour Jane Seymour was one of Anne Boleyn’s ladies-in-waiting. She was from an old and noble family. Jane was gentle and modest and not grumpy like Anne. She gave birth to a sickly son in 1537, Edward, but died soon after. It is said that Jane was Henry’s favourite wife and he waited 2 years before marrying again.
Anne of Cleves Henry wanted another queen. He saw a picture of a German princess, Anne of Cleves, and decided to marry her. Henry didn’t fancy Anne at all. He is said to have called her a horse. Their marriage only lasted 6 months. But after their divorce they became good friends.
Catherine Howard Catherine Howard was a cousin of Anne Boleyn and was only about 16 when she married Henry. (He was 49) Very soon Henry found out that Catherine had been seeing other men, so he charged her with adultery and she was beheaded. The following year he married for the last time.
Catherine Parr Catherine had already been married twice before, but both her husbands had died. Henry was very fat and ill and Catherine was as much a nurse as a wife. When Henry died in 1547, she quickly married Thomas Seymour (her fourth husband).
