    Detail from Whitehall Palace showing the Banqueting House- In 1530, King Henry VIII acquired York Palace from Cardinal Thomas Wolsey. Henry renamed it Whitehall Palace. The Palace replaced Westminster Palace as Henry's main London residence. In 1533, Henry married Anne secretly at the palace, and in 1536 married Jane Seymour. He died at the palace in January 1547. Much of the Tudor portion of the building was destroyed by fire in 1691.

    Jane Seymour (c. 1508 – 24 October 1537) was the third wife of Henry VIII. She was not educated as highly as Henry's previous wives, Catherine of Aragon and Anne Boleyn. She could read and write a little. She died 30 y.o.,less than two weeks after the birth of her son who reigned as Edward VI. She was the only one of Henry's wives to receive a queen's funeral, and was buried beside Henry in St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, as she was the only consort to have a male heir to survive infancy.
