As I was taught in school: Divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived ~ Six Wives of Henry VIII (Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleves, Katherine Howard, and Catherine Parr)
This is where King Henry VIII was enthroned in 1509. Since 1308, when it was commissioned by King Edward I, all but two monarchs have been crowned in the chair. This image was taken in 1987 when the Stone of Scone was still there.
Henry VIII & his wives ~ finally and exhaustively! All we have to add is that these three Queens were relatives ( Boleyn, Howard, Parr), all these three could be beheaded (Parr was very close to execution and murder), all these three were, probably, the most beloved wives of Henry VIII of England.
After Henry took his dead brother Arthur's bride the foundations were laid for one of the most spectacular reigns in English history. He was the perfect Renaissance prince, but his first wife Katherine of Aragon's failure to produce a male heir brought out his darker side and led to his dismantling of the established church in England. By the time of his death, he had married six times.
