The wives of Henry VIII have interesting histories themselves and are always left out of history curriculum because they weren't the monarch. I argue that you learn more about the man and his motivations by focusing on the wives. This is a collection of short reads about each wife. The short reads give students an idea of the role of women during Tudor England.

By highlighting only men in your history classes you ignore 50% of the population. Add more women. They were important, influential, and oftentimes erased from the historical record. Don't continue that trend.

This resource will fit into a European history class and during lessons about Tudor England.

These readings highlight mature content such as consummation of marriage, miscarriage, adultery, incest, death after childbirth, sexual consent, rape, victim-blaming, and molestation. Purchase with care.

Catherine of Aragon and Anne Boleyn are short reads with summary workbooks.

Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleves, Catherine Howard, and Catherine Parr do NOT include summary workbooks.


What's Included:

  • Catherine of Aragon short read with summary workbook
  • Anne Boleyn short read with summary workbook
  • Jane Seymour short read
  • Anne of Cleves short read
  • Catherine Howard short read
  • Catherine Parr short read
