In January of 1536 Catherine of Aragon died at Kimbolton Castle, and within months Anne Boleyn was executed on the order of her husband, King Henry VIII. Henry then married Jane Seymour, who was a great supporter of Mary Tudor, and tried to reconcile father and daughter. Jane gave birth to a son, the future King Edward VI, but dies shortly after. Mary witnessed three more of her father's ill-fated marriages, one ending in divorce, one in a beheading and one wife who outlived her husband. In 1547 Henry VIII dies and Mary's young, half-brother Edward is proclaimed King. Mary was never close to Edward, a devout Protestant, whose rule was overseen by a Protestant council. On July 10th of 1553, the young King dies and leaves his throne to the Lady Jane Grey. Nine days later, Queen Jane was deposed and executed soon after and Mary was finally proclaimed Queen of England.
