Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour and Anne of Cleves today. First Anne Boleyn though.
Okay, Anne Boleyn was a child to Lady Elizabeth Howard and Thomas Boleyn. Anne was schooled in many subjects in many categories. In regular classes ( by regular I mean stuff we learn today), reading, spelling, grammar, history and writing. Domestic; Dance, embroidery, manners, management, music and singing.Games; Cards, chess and dice. Wikipedia didn't list anything specific. She was trained in bloodsport too. Such as archery, hunting, horseback riding and yes, hunting. Anne stopped Her education in 1521. She was then a maid-of-honor to queen Claude of France. Anne was quite pretty with black eyes and hair. Anne came to royal court in 1522. she was then sent from court and returned to serve Catherine of Aragon. The Spanish queen of England, and first wife to Henry VIII. Henry was beginning to pass documents that Mary (Catherine's daughter) was a bastard, and divorced Catherine. He then married Anne who gave birth to a daughter, Elizabeth, and Henry was ANGRY. so angry he imprisoned Anne in the Tower of London. He then had her executed. INTERESTING FACT: Anne never got a proper coffin. A servant from the yard put her body in a chest and she fit because he put her head on her stomach!

Now Sweating Sickness. The Sweate (as it was commonly called,) was a disease that began with apprehension and then cold shivers.You would then be giddy and have headache afterwards. You would have severe neck, shoulder and limb pain, also exhaustion. Now sweating, and a sense of heat everywhere you go. You would be delirious and be very thirsty. Tired much? You would be if you were in this stage of the sweate you would want to sleep an expert wouldn't let you. Why? you would most likely die. Now I bet you're glad the disease went extinct in 1578 huh?
Ahhh.... It feels good to be typing again. Do you guys like my new template design? I have been getting feedback (from my Mother) that the old one was too hard to read with some of the colours. Now to the topic. Catalina of Aragon (or Catherine Catalina is Spanish) was born to Ferdinand II of Aragon and Isabella I of Castilla or Castile on the 6 December 1485. As a young girl Catherine was fairly pretty. She was short with golden-auburn hair, fair skin and large blue eyes. She was schooled well in ; Religion, law, latin histories, heraldry,genealogy and classics and most of those subjects made for a very religious young woman. She was taught spanish, french, latin and greek in language and she was also taught domestic skills; needlepoint, lacemaking, embroidery, dance and music. Cate was considered a suitable wife for Henry VII's son Arthur at an early age. The two later met on November 4 1499 and were married 10 days later. A few months later Arthur and Cate went to Ludlow Castle where they were both struck ill with sweating sickness wich was a horrid disease wich consisted of 3 stages but I will tell you about that in the surprisingly short dictionary. Arthur died, but Cate eventually pulled through. Cate then Married Henry VIII on 11 June 1509 and they were anointed June 24. Cate had six children and only one survived, Mary I. 1525, Henry noticed Anne Boelyn and soon after, married her and Divorced Cate. Cate died in 1536.
