Birth: May 19, 1500 (?)***
Death: May 19, 1536
I’ve posted about her: Somewhat. Here’s a review of a book about the wives of King Henry VIII: http://austenitis.blogspot.com/2011/06/wives-of-henry-viii.html
It’s her 512th birthday!
You know her because – she was King Henry VIII’s second wife, and one of the most famous. Also the mother of Elizabeth I.
***Incidentally – historians disagree about her birthday. She died on May 19, we know that for sure, but it’s not known whether or not (for sure) it was her birthday. Some say yes, others, no. So I’m posting about her today, but it’s not actually for sure!
