Anne Of Cleaves married King Henry VIII on January 6th, 1540. She and Henry had a doomed marriage. In henry's words "I liked her before not well, but now I like her much worse." The marriage soon dissolved, but Henry was not angry, in fact, he gave her a generous settlement after the marriage including the richmond Palace. They became good friends and she was an honorary member of the kings family. Henry then gave her precedence over all women in England save his own wife and daughters.
