Who’s that queen?

As some of you may know, I have been obsessed with the women who married Henry VIII of England for much of my life. I’m working on a dissertation about some of these women, but just in case you don’t know who I mean, here are their names and life dates.

Catherine of Aragon (that’s Spain, yep) 1485-1536

Anne Boleyn (daughter of the powerful Howard family) ?1501-1509-1536

Jane Seymour (daughter of the powerful Seymour family) ?1508-1537

Anne of Cleves (a Catholic duchy north of some of the holdings of the Holy Roman Empire)


Catherine Howard (a much younger daughter of the Howard family) 1521-1542

Katheryn Parr (a noble widow, named for Catherine of Aragon) 1512-1548

And now, here are the portraits I’ve been able to find of each of these women.
