Henry VIII & his wives ~ finally and exhaustively! All we have to add is that these three Queens were relatives ( Boleyn, Howard, Parr), all these three could be beheaded (Parr was very close to execution and murder),  all these three were, probably, the most beloved wives of Henry VIII of England.

Anne of Cleves. Henry VIII 4th wife. Henry VIII remained single for over two years after Jane Seymour's death. Henry decided to have a contract drawn up for his marriage to Anne in order to gain an ally in the reformation of the church. Although the King of France and the Emperor had gone back to their usual state of animosity, Henry proceeded with the match. The marriage took place on January 6, 1540.

As the story goes, the last of the Platagenet Kings, the Twins, Edward and his brother, fell prey to the Tudors.  King Henry's wives paid off unscrupulous servants to bind them and put them in a box under the bed.  They then threw the box in the moat for the little King and Prince to drown.
