King Henry VIII
By Sharon Fabian
  

1     King Henry VIII, even though he was king of England, is better known for a few events in his personal life than for historical events like wars or politics. Those few events were his marriages. Not just one or two of them. King Henry VIII was married six times!
 
2     The first wife of King Henry VIII was Catherine of Aragon. Catherine was first married to Arthur, Henry's older brother. If Arthur had lived, he would have been the next king of England. His death made his younger brother, Henry, the successor to the throne.
 
3     When young Henry became the next in line to the throne, he also became engaged to Catherine. This was considered a good match for England because it would provide an alliance between Henry's England and Catherine's Spain. Henry married Catherine in 1509, the same year that he became king.
 
4     Henry and Catherine had a daughter, Princess Mary, but one thing that Henry wanted badly was a son - a son who would one day succeed him as king. A son could safeguard the throne for future generations, keeping it in the Tudor family.
