“Divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived.” So goes the centuries-old English nursery rhyme used by school children to help remember the fates of each of the six wives of King Henry VIII (1491 - 1547). These also happen to be the opening lines of the sensational musical “Six,” which my children and I had the pleasure of seeing last month in Wisconsin. In chronological order, Henry’s queens were Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleves, Catherine Howard, and Catherine Parr. Henry VIII is famous for his wives, but how much do you know about each of them?
