Henry VIII's wives

Catherine of Aragon - divorced after failing to produce a male


Anne Boleyn - tried, convicted and executed for treason,

witchcraft and incest. She was almost certainly innocent and was

the victim of her enemies at court and those who wanted to

ingratiate themselves with the King.

Jane Seymour - died of complications of childbirth.

Anne of Cleves - divorced after six months - Henry found her

unnattractive but treated her well and she outlived Henry and all

his other wives.

Catherine Howard - tried, convicted and executed for treason -

her treason was committing adultery with at least two men.

Catherine Parr - outlived Henry, remarried and died of

complications of childbirth just over a year after Henry died.
