I CAN'T BELIEVE I'VE NEVER SEEN THIS ~ KING HENRY VIII BY HANS HOLBEIN THE YOUNGER

History has a neat and convenient stereotype for each of Henry VIII’s wives. Here are some of the less-known facts about Henry’s Queens that...

Elizabeth Amadas (died 1532) was a lady at the royal court of King Henry VIII of England who was accused of treason. She had described Anne Boleyn as a harlot, and said that she should be burnt. She also said that the King, by setting aside Katherine of Aragon for a younger woman, was encouraging the men of England to do the same. She later was released but didn´t recover her position at court. She was also the target of the Kings relentless advances, but never stated if she gave in.

The War of the Roses began in 1455 when the reign of King Henry VI of the House of Lancaster was challenged by Richard, Duke of York. Richard claimed the king's grandfather Henry IV had usurped the throne from the rightful king Richard II in 1399.
