Queen Mary of England was the daughter of King Henry VIII and his first wife Catherine of Aragon. She was born at Greenwich on February 18th, 1516. Mary’s life was troubled early on with the public divorce and multiple marriage disasters of her father King Henry.
Anne of Cleves was the fourth wife of King Henry VIII for a very short time. The marriage was annulled after he had qualms about marrying the lady after their first meeting. The wedding took place on the morning of January 6, 1540 only to be dissolved by summer.
