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


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.
