King Henry VIII

Henry's next wife, Jane, finally gave the king what he'd sought for so long: a male heir. She died shortly after giving birth. His next wife, Anne of Cleves, posessed little education and little beauty. Henry nicknamed her the Flanders Mare.

There were many myths surrounding the infamous Anne, most likely created by those who remained loyal to Catherine of Aragon. The most notable rumor was that she had 6 fingers on one hand!
