Katherine Parr
Birth: 1512
Blackfriars
City of London
Greater London, England
Death: Sep. 5, 1548
Winchcombe
Tewkesbury Borough
Gloucestershire, England

Queen of England. Sixth and last wife of King Henry VIII. She married the King in 1543, after being twice-widowed. She was 31. At this time in the King's life, he was looking at Katherine as more of a nurse and companion than anything else. Katherine was well-educated and strong-willed, which was rare in women at that time. Katherine did much to bring the King's three children back to court and back into their father's favour, particularly Princess Elizabeth, to whom she became a loving mother figure. She appointed for the children the best tutors and encouraged them to learn. She was a stabilizing factor in the aging and ill Henry's life until his death in 1547. Katherine then married her true love, Thomas Seymour. She gave birth to her first child in 1548, a daughter named Mary. Katherine died shortly after the birth. (bio by: Kristen Conrad)
