Jane Seymour

(1509 to 1537)

In 1536 Henry VIII married his third wife, Jane Seymour. She had been Anne Boleyn’s lady-in-waiting.

Jane Seymour was probably loved the best because she gave Henry a son and heir. Edward was born in 1537.

Jane had a difficult labour and died shortly after giving birth. Henry was said to have really loved Jane and was very upset when she died. Her body was laid to rest at Windsor, where Henry himself was later buried. She is the only wife to share his grave.
