Out of Henry VIII’s six wives, the ones that are most remembered are his first three.
Catherine of Aragon: His first queen and mother of Queen Mary.
Anne Boleyn: mother of Queen Elizabeth, and a woman who is also known for helping cause a religious revolution in England and her tragic end.
Jane Seymour: the young woman who gave birth to his only son. To be fair, Jane is often forgotten and limited as “mother of Edward” then anything else.
I will admit that I am biased against Henry VIII who I felt was a bit of a bastard towards his wives in more ways than one. I also feel that general history has basically reduced these women to just being one of the six wives, without a sense of individuality. There has to be so much more to them then just their spouse. In that respect, I have decided to learn more about these six women, starting with the first, Catherine of Aragon.
