In your book does it say anything about her lying to the king by saying she was a virgin?
I haven't come across anything saying that she lied, but she definitely was not a virgin when she married the king.
Was Anne Boleyn really her cousin?
Yes they really were cousins. Catherine's father was Anne's mother's brother.
Why did it say they executed Ann
It says that Anne was accused of adultery, flirting with courtiers, and was executed because she had "committed treason against the king."
does it say anything about witchcraft?
how old was Catherine when the king tried to pursue her
My books just say that she was "in her teenaged years."
There's no specific age given.
Just kidding the other book said that Catherine was 19 when the king noticed her.
does it ever say anything about the king formally asking her to marry him
I haven't seen anything about the king formally asking her to marry him but it does say that they were officially married on the eighth of August in 1540.
did the king give her a necklace
The king supposedly gifted her with many dresses and jewels.
was it ever specified which one
Does your book explain much about Thomas Culpeper?
they just brought him up in the last couple of chapters
Did Catherine lose her virginity to Henry Manox or Francis Dereham?
in the book it says she lost her virginity to Francis. Henry wanted to have sex with her but she gave in.
King Henry divorced his wife previous to Catherine, Anne of Cleves, because her body was disordered and indisposed to provoke or excite any lust in him. Does your book say anything of this??
it does mention how he was very disapproving of her appearance
It also says that he "could not overcome his loathsomeness" of her, "nor in her company be provoked or stirred to the Act."
This was supposed to be attached to the last one.
Michelle... The next part says "His doctor advised the king not to force himself, as this might cause an inconvenience debility of the royal private parts."
I'm laughing so hard omg.
my book mentions nothing of the sort
Catherine, though she was intrigued by the jewels and parties brought on my her new husband, was bored with his presence and repulsed by him physically.
In the book it says her wedding dress was a hand me down last worn by queen jane
did your book mention any thing about setting and the different places they went together
not really. it mainly just says that she was disgusted with him and married him for his wealth and status. I can imagine she wouldn't want to venture too much.
Did they say anything about the king having a sickness or health issue with swelling of the legs
Yes it mentioned this in relation to his wife at the time and how she was repulsed by his unhealthiness
did queen jane have brothers named Edward and thomas
yes she did have two brothers but so far only Edward has been given a name.
does a girl by the name of Mary join her court that was related to jane
my book says that Mary was not given a position among the queen's court and in retaliation, she, along with other girls in the dormitory in which she was staying, told of the queens affairs over the years.
when all of the scandals around catherine come out, Culpeper said his punishment was merely a "merciful beheading" while others were sentenced to life in jail.
"merciful" i guess compared to francis yea
Dereham had the worst demise and it was absolutely brutal. First he was hanged until nearly unconscious, cut down, his private parts were then cut off and thrown in a fire while he watched, then his body was slit open and disemboweled, and finally beheaded.The merciful beheading sounds lovely in comparison.
i dont understand why he was punished he stopped seeing Catherine
a year before she married the king
Catherine was so extra, that when she was condemned she asked to have a block brought to her tower so she could practice paying her head on it so as to not feel awkward the morning of her execution.
in my book all she wanted to do was please people and she was very thirsty for attention
henry married anne of cleves in january of 1540 and then catherine in july of that same year. How?...
because hes a 3 letter word and claims she was unattractive
