This is the story of Henry VIII's Six Wives at Hampton Court.
ANNE BOYLEN WAS MOST INFAMOUS
But I promised I would have a boy. What is this red monster?
Wife number One, Catherine was from Aragon, in Spain, daugther of Queen Isabella. She first married Arthur, Henry's brother. After he died, she had to wait 5 years for Henry to turn 17 to marry him. Then, she was 24. She suffered badly with many of her pregnancies and could not give Henry a son. Her only daughter was Mary.
HERE COMES THE FIRST CHOP!
Ze job is parfait!
Henry divorced Catherine after 20 years, which led Henry to break away from the Pope and Catholicism and set up his own Anglican church, so he could marry...
HENRY DIDN'T WASTE ANY TIME!
We are already engaged!
Then came wife number Two - Anne Boylen, with her weird eyes and her extra finger. She was 28 when she and Henry wed. She behaved badly and had lots of affairs. Although she had promised Henry a male heir (that's also what his last wife said!), it didn't happen. Instead, she had Liz, with red hair.
Anne was beheaded on Tower Green by a French swordman, especially chosen by the King because he would have a clean cut.
I have a little neck... Too LITTLE too late
Then came Jane Seymour, wife number Three, engaged to Henry the day after Anne lost her head. She was 28 years old and much younger than Henry. She didn't have many ambitions and was very nice to Henry who fell madly in love with her.
