Henry the Eighth to six spouses was wedded: one died, one survived, two divorced, two beheaded.A" When the subject of Henry VIII's many marital adventures is discussed, Henry's wives are spoken of as one entity, with no existence outside their lives with Henry. In Dixie Atkins' four volume novel, 'A Golden Sorrow', she sets out to give the reader a comprehensive account of each Queen, from birth to death, based on meticulous research. Each wife tells her own story: Katherine of Aragon, the Spanish princess; Anne Boleyn, brought up at the French court; Jane Seymour, living in the shadow of her ambitious brothers; Anne of Cleves, who became Henry's 'honorary sister'; Katherine Howard, the promiscuous teenager; Katherine Parr, who sacrificed happiness to care for an ailing king. All paid dearly for wearing 'A Golden Sorrow'. 'THE MOST HAPPY' Motto of Queen Anne Boleyn Refutation of Anne, Queen of England, Marquess of Pembroke, wife to the High and Mighty Lord Henry, Eighth of that name, King of this realm, Defender of the Faith, Supreme Head of the Church in England. The year 1536. 'My lords, it is the cold which makes me tremble more than the aspen leaf. There is a keen wind on the river today. See how the surface ruffles. The barge makes slow headway.'
