Catherine Parr was Henry VIII's sixth wife. She had been married and widowed twice before she caught Henry's eye and was 31 when she married him. It is thought that she was in love with Thomas Seymour, the brother of Henry's third wife, Jane Seymour, when Henry proposed.
Catherine Parr has gone down in history as being kind lady (she brought Henry's two daughters back into his life and got on well with her step-son Edward) and she ruled the country successfully when Henry was away at war with France. After Henry's death she married was finally able to marry her love, Thomas Seymour, but sadly died shortly after having her first child.
