Catherine of Braganza (Portuguese: Catarina Henriqueta de Bragança; 25 November 1638 – 31 December 1705) was Queen of England, Scotland and Ireland from 1662 to 1685, as the wife of King Charles II. Catherine was born into the House of Braganza, the most senior noble house in Portugal which became Portugal's royal house after Catherine's father, John, 8th Duke of Braganza, was proclaimed King John IV, after deposing the House of Habsburg, in 1640.

Bacchiacca, Francesco - Woman with a Cat, 1540s. Looks like a serval, a wild African cat that would grow to 2 or 3 ft. long. The lady looks cool & distant, but that may be the artist showing how important she is. Maybe her owning an exotic pet tells us more about her - that she felt more interesting and exotic herself for owning the cat. And, old drawings of animals are often fanciful, at best. Another mystery.

Catherine of Aragon - the Spanish Queen consort of England as the first wife of King Henry VIII of England.

HENRY CAREY, first Lord Hunsdon (1524?-1596), governor of Berwick and chamberlain of Queen Elizabeth's household, born about 1524, was only son of William Carey, esquire of the body to Henry VIII, by his wife Mary, sister or Anne Boleyn and daughter of Sir Thomas Boleyn. Through his mother he was first cousin to Queen Elizabeth. His father died of the sweating sickness in 1528, and his mother remarried Sir William Stafford, who died 19 July 1543.
.Henry Carey, 1st Baron Hunsdon KG (4 March 1526 – 23 July 1596), was an English nobleman and courtier.The son of Mary Boleyn, the sister of Anne Boleyn, he was a cousin of Elizabeth I. Since his mother was also a mistress to King Henry VIII of England, some historians have speculated that he might have been an illegitimate child of Henry VIII. He was the patron of Lord Chamberlain's Men, William Shakespeare's playing company

Henry VIII-was fascinated with him and tudor history
Holbein's famous portrait of Henry VIII c1536
There are two reasons for King Henry VIII's persistent fame - the fascinating history of his reign, and the artistic genius of Hans Holbein the Younger. If Henry had been immortalized by a lesser artist, it is likely that even six wives and the Reformation would not have ensured his place as the most recognizable monarch in world history.

Henry VIII, c1536, by Hans Holbein the Younger. This is the quintessential portrait of Henry VIII. The cloth of gold sleeve and the intricate pattern of the cloth of silver doublet are perfectly done. Real gold was used to detail the sleeve and the king's jewelry. The portrait was done around the time of Anne Boleyn's execution, in the midst of the dissolution of the monasteries and before Henry's long-awaited son was born.

Anne Boleyn continued..Anne took to her chamber, according to custom, on August 26, 1533 and on September 7, at about 3:00 in the afternoon, the Princess Elizabeth was born. On April 30, 1536, Anne's musician and friend for several years, Mark Smeaton, was arrested and probably tortured into making 'revelations' about the Queen. On May 2, the Queen herself was arrested at Greenwich and was informed of the charges against her: adultery, incest and plotting to murder the King.
