No, Catherine Howard did not have any children. She was the fifth wife of Henry VIII and two years after the marriage she was beheaded. It was Catherine of Aragon who had a daughter, the future Mary I.
None. Catherine Howard was found guilty of treason (she had carnal relations with other men) and was stripped of her title as Queen and executed on February 13th 1542.
Her year of birth is unknown, but she probably married in her midto late teens. Catherine Howard (probably born 1521- executed 1542) was the fifthwife of Henry VIII and 30 years younger than her husband. Theymarried on 28 July 1540. Catherine was a niece of the powerful Dukeof Norfolk and also a cou…sin of Anne Boleyn, Henry's second wifewho was executed in 1536. So Catherine would have been around 19when she married Henry, as her birth date is not absolutely known.She later had a relationship with a young courtier, ThomasCulpepper, and was suspected of being involved with other menbefore she married Henry. She was accused of adultery, amongstother things, and executed on 13 February 1542 at The Tower ofLondon. Some sites claim she was as young as sixteen. Apparently her birthyear is in dispute. (MORE)
King Henry VIII and Katherine Howard were married in the year 1540. It was the fifth marriage for the King. In two years time Katherine was beheaded for treason/ adultery. By 1540, Henry had become fat and he had lost the muscular physique he had when he was younger. He was now 49 and his lifestyl…e was starting to catch up with him. Catherine was just 15 or 16 when Henry asked for her hand in marriage. She was considered to be very beautiful, lively and kind. Henry described her as a "rose without a thorn". Why did she marry someone 34 years older than she was? Simply because she had no choice - Henry was king and Catherine's family welcomed the opportunity her marriage presented to move closer to the king. What a fifteen to sixteen year old girl thought about marrying a 49 year old man is not recorded. Catherine did commit adultery. Given the age difference and Henry's character perhaps this was inevitable. Catherine had an affair with Thomas Culpepper of the King's Privy Chamber. It was soon discovered and Henry showed both of them no mercy. Culpepper was executed in December 1541, as was Francis Dereham who was an earlier love of Catherine's. She was executed in February 1542 aged seventeen or eighteen. This experience of marital betrayal did not put off Henry and one year later he married his last wife Catherine Parr.

she was beheaded on the13 February 1542 because of betrayal . She was accused of adultery like her cousin Anne Boleyn and beheaded.
It's hard to say what exactly she looked like since Henry VIII ordered all her portraits burned and the portraits that are commonly thought to be her might not be hers at all but she had long brown hair, brown eyes and her hair was fair.

Young, pretty, and spirted Catherine Howard came to the Court of Henry VIII around 1540 as a Lady-in-waiting for his bride to be Anne of Cleves. Catherine caught the king's attention and no doubt her uncle, the duke of norfolk, incouraged her. Forty-nine year old Henry devorced the wife he never lik…ed on July 12 and married nineteen year-old Catherine sixteen days later. Henry was no girl's dream anymore. He'd gained alot of weight, had an ulcer on his leg that caused him alot of pain and had to be opened daily to squeeze out the puss and blood, and was known for his terrible temper and violent mood swings. Catherine made him feel young and handsome again. He called her his 'rose without a thorn' and she took on the motto 'No Other Will Than His'. But less than a year after their marriage rumors of affairs began. You can't really blame the girl for seeking men her own age. By November of 1541 enough evidence had been gathered to bring the matter to Henry's attention. Henry didn't believe the charges but agreed for an investigation. Evidence was found that Catherine had had not been a virgin before their marriage and had had affairs with other men after. On February 13, 1542 Catherine Howard was executed on the Tower Green.

Henry VIII (1491 - 1547) and Catherine Howard (c1520 - 1542), his ill-fated fifth wife, did not have any children.
Yes, after less than two years of marriage. Catherine Howard (c1520 - 1542) was Henry VIII's fifth wife, and a lot younger than Henry (1491 - 1547). Henry and Catherine were married on the day that Thomas Cromwell (Henry's chief minister who fell from grace) was executed, 28 July 1540. Catherine was… a cousin of the ill fated Anne Boleyn (Henry's second wife, who was beheaded in 1536) and also a niece of the Duke of Norfolk. Henry was much in love and happy with her, but Catherine made the tragic mistake of having an adulterous affair with a cousin of her mother's, Thomas Culpepper, which was a treasonable offence. Henry had always seen Catherine as his "rose without a thorn", despite the ever growing gossip about her previous affairs which had taken place when she was younger. Henry was said to have sobbed when the awful evidence of the truth was brought to him. Catherine was arrested, but was reported to have tried desperately to intercept Henry when he was coming out of mass at Hampton Court. She is said to have run screaming down a corridor but was stopped by guards. Her ghost is said to haunt that corridor. She was eventually taken to the Tower of London on 10 February 1542. Due to be executed on the 13th, Catherine asked for the executioner's block to be brought to her cell so that she could practice putting her head upon it. On the 13th February 1542 she went to her death, which was mercifully over quickly. Her body was placed in the chapel of St. Peter ad Vincula at the Tower, to join that of her cousin Anne Boleyn. Henry VIII married Katherine Parr, his last wife, on 12 July 1543, but she outlived him, as Henry died on 28 January 1547 (MORE)
Although she behaved less than honorably both before and during her marriage to King Henry VIII, it is very unlikely that Catherine Howard mothered any children. It was rumored that Henry VIII was impotent during their marriage, and while there was speculation of her being pregnant, there was no act…ual record of Catherine being with child or giving birth to any children either by the king or by any of her lovers.

Catherine howard was beheaded on the13th February 1542. Because Henry VIII said so. He wanted a son. Truthfully, Catherine was beheaded because Henry caught wind of her affair with one of his groomsmen, Thomas Culpepper.
Catherine Howard was the daughter of Edmund and Elizabeth Howard.Although, the family was a member of the aristocracy, the familyhas to live off hand outs from relatives.
No. Catherine Howard was only married to King Henry VIII for a relatively short time before she was beheaded, and while she was promiscuous both prior and during her marriage, there is no record of Catherine bearing any children.
Catherine Howard's date of birth was not recorded, so we do not know when it is.
Catherine Howard was a lady-in-waiting to Anne of Cleves who at the time was married to Henry VIII. It was then when she caught the aging Henry's eye.
She was born in either 1521 or 1524. No one is certain about the exact date but she was most certainly a teenager when she wedded Henry VII.
Katherine Howard had 9 siblings called : Ralph, George, Henry, Charles, Mary, John Isabel, Joyce, Margaret. In no particular order
I don't know what her hobbies were but one of them could have been adultery
They were first cousins that both married Henry VIII and both were beheaded by him
Queen Anne Boleyn [1501? 1507? - May 19, 1536] and her cousin Queen Catherine Howard [c. 1521-February 13, 1542] were buried at St. Peter ad Vincula, in the Tower of London. The Tower was where they were imprisoned, and where they were executed.
Yes, with Thomas Culpepper. Definitely. . Henry's favourite male courtier,whom she had initially desired on her arrival at court two years earlier. Their meetings were arranged by Lady Rochford(George Boleyns`widow).
She had adulterous affairs while she was married to King Henry VIII of England which is not something you did to Henry.
It is believed that King Henry VIII did love Catherine Howard whenthey first married. However, she committed adultery and he had herexecuted.
On July 28, 1540 , in a religious ceremony at Oatlands Palace Catherine Howard [c. 1521-February 13, 1542] married King Henry VIII [June 28, 1491-January 28, 1547] of England. It was the King's fifth marriage. It was supposed widely to be the first marriage for his young 'rose without a thorn…'. But the young Queen may have gone through the equivalent of a previous wedding ceremony. She was said to have had an adolescent affair with Francis Dereham [d. December 10, 1541]. The affair may have taken place in 1538-1539. Their intimacy was said to have been accompanied by greeting each other as 'husband' and 'wife'. Catherine also was said to have acted as a wife in handling Dereham's money in his absence. The affair may have ended with a trip to Ireland by Dereham. But it also was said that the two intended to marry upon Dereham's return. If such was the case, and the couple agreed to a precontract, their affair instead would have amounted to a marriage. Such most definitely would have been the case if theyed vowed their intent to marry before their affair began. It was considered treasonous for the young Queen to have been intimate with anyone other than her royal husband. Before the marriage, she was supposed to have provided her future husband with a full and complete report of all such involvements. She didn't do so. Her previous actions and the lack of their timely disclosure were what the King used to divorce and execute his young bride. (MORE)

she was like your mom: a milf, cheap , easy and overused. and she looked ugly like you
She was conducting an affair with a gentleman at court. Therefore, she suffered the same fate as Anne Boleyn.
Brown...since her family had brown eyes and she had dark hair, so the genes would pass on dark traits. Light brown, perhaps.
Henry VIII gave Catherine Howard many pets, but she gave them to others, mainly Anne of Cleeves.
