Henry waited a mere 11 days after Anne’s death before marrying his third, and often described as his favourite wife, Jane Seymour. Jane was able to do what no other wife did for Henry – she gave him a male heir.
Did Henry sleep with Catherine of Aragon’s sister?

Who was King Henry VIII’s 4th wife?
Henry called his fourth wife, Anne of Cleves, a “Flanders mare” and they divorced within a year, but she proved the second most compatible. Next on the list was Catherine of Aragon, who was married to Henry for 23 years before he split with the Roman Catholic Church to divorce her.
Was Jane Seymour Henry VIII’s favourite wife?
Today, Jane Seymour is commonly regarded as Henry’s favourite wife – not least because she finally bore him a son – but she’s down in fourth place. It is likely Henry would disagree with the findings that she was not bold and outgoing enough, as she is the only wife buried with him.
Was Henry VIII’s ‘love’ for Catherine of Aragon really passion?
Alison Weir argues that Henry’s ‘love’ for Catherine was never really passion. I think she is probably right. As I’ve argued in another post, Henry was probably unfaithful to Katherine within a year of their marriage.
What was Henry VIII’s relationship with Henry Parr like?
Nearing the end of his life, Henry didn’t have much passion left in him. They seem to have been good friends and companions more than anything. Although he occasionally grumbled about his fifth wife, Katherine Howard, not becoming pregnant during their marriage, that didn’t really come up during his marriage to Parr.
