Catherine HOWARD

English Catherine HOWARD

Queen of England from 1540 until 1541, as the fifth wife of Henry VIII

Source :  Jacques CHANIS

Born: in 1523 in Lambeth, London
Died: on February 13, 1542 in Tower Of London


Catherine was the third of Henry's wives to have been a member of the English gentry; Catherine of Aragon and Anne of Cleves being of European nobility.

Catherine was a daughter of Lord Edmund Howard (c 1478–1539) and Joyce Culpeper (c 1480– c 1528). Her father's sister Elizabeth Howard, was the mother of Anne Boleyn. Therefore Catherine Howard and Anne Boleyn were first cousins and Catherine Howard and Lady Elizabeth (later Queen Elizabeth I) were first-cousins-once-removed.

As a granddaughter of Thomas Howard, 2nd Duke of Norfolk (1443–1524), Catherine had an aristocratic pedigree, but her father was not wealthy owing to his large birth family, being one of 21 children; and the primogeniture custom in which the eldest son inherits all his fathers estate.
