    They had STD's then but not all subdivided like we have them now. When you think about the sex and catholic church one has to remember that the catholic church had different standards for different classes and genders as well. It was possible to buy your forgiveness.

    I am looking forward to the Season 3 Premiere tonight! Henry is off to marry Lady Jane, wife #3. I wonder how far they plan to take the story this season -- does anyone happen to know?

    Sassansauce, I totally agree with you about Jonathan - he is smoking hot! Lucky for us as he is much better looking and a sexier version of the real King Henry.

    I know it goes as far as wife #4 comes into the picture now whether they get married and divorced this season i don't know...i do know history tells us that Henry did wait 2 years after jane died before he married Anne of Cleves

    How does history say Jane Seymour died? She wasn't hung, was she?

    Jane Seymour died days after childbirth.

    Jane Seymour laboured two days and three nights before bringing forth Henry's son. Just as prayers were being said for her safe deliverance, the boy-child, in triumph, was laid in her arms. Legend has it that the boy – to be called Edward for his grandfather Edward V had been born via caesarean section. Jane Seymour still lived twelve days after her son’s birth, although now dying. On the twelfth day after Edward’s birth, Jane – with so little time to enjoy the glory of being the woman to give Henry’s his heir – died of ‘childbed’ fever – the killer of so many new mothers in this period. Jane’s time as Queen lasted less than eighteen months.

    Jane was also never coronated as Queen as Kathryn and Anne had been...it has been said that Henry was waiting for the birth of a male child before he would give her a coronation ceromoney

    The stuff they had before the season premier included comments from the wardrobe lady, who basically said they had to update the fashions to make it relevant to modern times. I think they overdid it, and this series will eventually seem as dated as the historical costume movies of the 30s or 60s that remind us more of the decade they were produced in than the time they are supposed to be about. But for now, it's great!

    I remember this poem from a Victorian children's book:

    Henry VIII to six wives was wedded:
    One died, one survived, two divorced, two beheaded.


    If that's true, none were hanged.

    Actually, see: Wives of Henry VIII - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
