Catherine of Aragorn: divorced, lived in (royal-version) poverty, died of
natural causes. Mother of Mary Tudor.
Anne Boleyn: Mother of Elizabeth Tudor. King got tired of her, had her
(probably) framed for adultery and incest, beheaded.
Jane Seymour: Mother of Edward Tudor, died a few days after the birth,
probably sepatcemia.
Katherine Howard: actually guilty of adultery and concealing sexual
relationships before she married Henry, beheaded.
Anne of Cleves: political marriage as she was a German princess. Henry
never liked her sexually. She was offered an annullment and took it, which
was very bright of her.
Katherine Parr: twice widowed before marrying Henry. Outlived him, married
again shortly after his death, died in childbirth from that marriage.

Louann, da Tudor buff.
