Divorced, beheaded, died; divorced, beheaded, survived.
In this episode, we continue our discussion on the six wives of Henry VIII. We will be learning about wives three through six: Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleves, Catherine Howard, and Catherine Parr. I have to admit I knew almost NOTHING about these four women before I began my research for this episode. While there are countless resources, movies, and TV shows about Henry’s first two wives, significantly less attention tends to be paid to the last four – at least in my experience. But don’t you worry, there is still PLENTY of drama to go around in this episode.
