  1. Catherine of Aragon was the Queen of England from June 1509 until May 1533 as the first wife of King Henry VIII; she was previously Princess of Wales as the wife of his elder brother Arthur.
    Anne Boleyn
    There is some dispute over the year in which Anne was born – most likely between 1501 and 1507. Anne’s father was the courtier and diplomat, Sir Thomas Boleyn and her mother, Elizabeth, was the daughter of the Duke of Norfolk.
    Jane Seymour
    Anne Boleyn’s successor, Queen Consort Jane Seymour, was Henry VIII’s third wife. She bore his first male heir, King Edward VI, before dying of complications.

    • I am sure you can do more. You should be doing a little every day over the holidays. Have you got pictures in it? have you got graphs, information sheets etc. We need projects that are different and not just one page or two. Is yours different?
