Jane Seymour was lady in waiting to both Catherine of Aragon and Anne Boleyn before she caught the attention of Henry VIII. Henry VIII proposed to her the day after Anne Boleyn was executed and they were married 10 days later.
In October 1537 Jane gave birth to Henry's son the future Edward VI. Sadly, Jane caught a fever and died 12 days later. Henry went into deep mourning, wore black for 3 months and did not marry again for 3 years.
