By cancer, although at the time poison was suspected because of her blackened heart, but at the time they did not understand the effects of cancer.

Some people say it was from Breast cancer, but no one knows the truth.

Kathryn died due to lung cancer. Although some people think it was breast cancer.

On January 7, 1536, Catherine of Aragon died at Kimbolton Castle and was buried at Peterborough Abbey (later Peterborough Cathedral, after the dissolution of the monasteries) with the ceremony due for her position as Princess Dowager, not as a Queen of England.

She died of natural causes, probably of cancer.

Queen Catherine of Aragon (Henry VIII first wife) was sent to live in isolation when Henry married Anne Boleyn. Some historians believe she was poisoned slowly, while others think she simply died of depression.
