Another good question… What happened to his last wife? And what was her name?

Jane Seymour’s Death

Monday, February 7th, 2011

Jane Seymour (1508 – 24 October 1537) was the third wife of King Henry VIII and she was Queen Consort of England (30 May 1536 – 24 October 1537). She died of childbed fever after giving birth to the future King Edward VI of England. She died on 24 October 1537 at Hampton Court. After her death, Henry wore black for the next three months and did not remarry for three years, although marriage negotiations were tentatively started soon after her death. She was Henry’s favorite wife because, historians have speculated, she gave birth to a male heir. When he died in 1547, Henry was buried beside her.
