Part 3 of historian David Starkey’s four-part series profiling Henry’s spouses focuses on Nos. 3 and 4, Jane Seymour and Anne of Cleves. Demure Jane Seymour, a Catholic, was nonetheless obedient to Henry, who loved her deeply and grieved when she died (after giving birth to a son, Edward) in 1537. In 1540, Henry married Anne of Cleaves (1515-57) because she was a Protestant. He divorced her six months later because he found her unattractive.
