11
Catherine of Aragon"blighted in the eyes of God"

Anne Boleyn"...to wish myself (specially an
evening) in my sweetheart's arms,whose pretty
ducks breasts I trust shortly to kiss."
  • The reason King Henry VIII married his second
    wife, Anne Boleyn, was for love and lust. Anne
    Boleyn was exciting and headstrong. Henry was in

    dark with flaming black eyes and a spirit and
    temper to match
  • Son Edward I, King of England.

15
Jane Seymour"My Dear friend and mistress,
  • The reason King Henry VIII married his third
    wife, Jane Seymour, was she was the total

17
Anne of Cleves"You have sent me a Flanders mare!"

    wife, Anne of Cleves, was to gain a political
    alliance in Europe.

    her

  • Young and Beautiful.
  • Rejuvenated Henry
  • No Children

19
Catherine Howard"Rose without a thorn"
  • The reason King Henry VIII married his fifth
    wife, Catherine Howard, was for lust and the
    infatuation of an old man.
  • Catherine was very young and pretty - his 'rose
    without a thorn' - wrong again!

20
Katherine ParrTo Be Useful in All Than I Do
  • Born 1512
  • Married 12 July 1543
  • Widowed 28 January 1547
  • Died 5 September 1548
  • Attentive stepmother, a caring nurse, a faithful
    companion.
  • No children

21
Katherine Parr"most dearly and most entirely
beloved wife"
  • The reason King Henry VIII married his last and
    sixth wife, Catherine Parr, was for comfort and
    companionship in his old age.

22
CONCLUSION
  • HENRY the VIII of England, seen here with his six
    wives, from left to right, Katherine of Aragon,
    Ann Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleves,
    Katherine Howard and Katherine Parr. Unlike
    Henry, the real Henry did not have all his wives
    at once. (His wives might have been happier if
    he had, considering that two of them were
    beheaded.)
