Inspired by the new Lucy Worsley BBC Tudor series, 'Six Wives', we have put together a collection featuring Henry VIII's six famous Tudor queens. Henry was King of England from 1509 until his death in 1547. His six wives were Katherine of Aragon (divorced), Anne Boleyn (beheaded), Jane Seymour (died), Anne of Cleves (divorced), Catherine Howard (beheaded) and Kateryn Parr, who survived him.
