House of Tudor
VIII's first wife Catherine
of Aragon died at Kimbolton
Castle in 1536 and was buried
Cathedral. She had married Henry's elder brother Prince
Arthur in 1501 but he died the following year. In 1509 she married
Henry VIII giving birth to the future Mary I in 1516. She remained
Queen until 1533 when Henry secretly married Anne Boleyn in
frustration at the Catholic Church in Rome not granting him
a divorce. This was to lead to the Reformation when Henry broke
with the Pope and set about creating the Church of England.
