King Henry VIII is married to his first wife, Catherine of Aragon. Catherine was previously the wife of Arthur, Henry's son, but Arthur died a few months after their wedding. With Henry VIII, Catherine became pregnant with several children, the first four of which were either miscarriages or died shortly after birth. The only child they had that lived was Mary. Henry, frustrated because he hadn't had a son and falling in love with Anne Boleyn, rejected the Pope and annulled their marriage.
