‘How many wives did Henry VIII have?’

Henry VIII Tudor was the King of England from 1509-1547. The ruler was known as an intolerant man, whose main desire was to have a male heir. This is what led to the split from the Roman Catholic Church and the establishment of the Anglican Church, of which Henry VIII named himself the head. The king expected his wives to bear him a son and show unquestioning obedience. As a result, two of his marriages ended with the beheading of his spouses, and two others were annulled. Henry VIII had a total of six wives, in the following order: Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleves, Catherine Howard, and Catherine Parr. In 2017, the musical Six premiered, which is a modernized tale of the fates of Henry VIII’s six wives.
