Henry called Catherine Howard his "Rose Without a Thorn". Catherine married Henry VIII on 28 July 1540, at Oatlands Palace, in Surrey, almost immediately after the annulment of his marriage to Anne of Cleves was arranged.

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.
