Person Female Born 1520 Died 13/2/1542
As lady-in-waiting to Anne of Cleves Catherine attracted Henry's ever-roving eye. Anne was dumped (via the annulment method) and the obese, 49-year old Henry married the 20-year old Catherine. She failed to find him a satisfactory lover and began an affair with Thomas Culpeper, her distant cousin, using her lady in waiting Jane Boleyn as a go-between. Discovery led to execution for all involved. Culpeper was beheaded at Tyburn, Catherine on Tower Green with Jane following close behind.
