Catherine Howard / Katherine Parr
1521 â€“ 13 February 1542
also spelled Katherine or Katheryn, was the fifth wife of Henry VIII of England, and sometimes known by his reference to her as his "rose without a thorn".
Catherine's birth date and place of birth are unknown (but occasionally cited as 1521 or 1524, possibly in Wingate, County Durham). She was the daughter of Lord Edmund Howard, a younger son of the 2nd Duke of Norfolk. This made her a first cousin of the King's second wife, Anne Boleyn. 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. However she was beheaded after less than two years of marriage to Henry on the grounds of treason, meaning adultery committed while married to the King.
1512 â€“ 5 September 1548
was the last of the six wives of Henry VIII of England. She was queen consort of England during 1543â€“1547, then Dowager Queen of England. She was the most-married English Queen, with four husbands.
