Jane Seymour (3rd wife of Henry VIII)

I created Jane Seymour in disney style portrait, I chose blue/yellow to represent her as gentle, beautiful, bit of naive where Anne Boleyn (See her portrait below) look more mystery, mindful and strong.

Other wives of Henry VIII:

1: Catherine of Aragon (Coming Soon)
2: Anne Boleyn: [link]
3: Jane Semour
4: Anne of Cleves (Coming Soon)
5: Catherine Howard (Coming Soon)
6: Catherine Parr (Coming Soon)

About Jane Seymour:

Jane Seymour (c. 1508 24 October 1537) was Queen of England as the third wife of King Henry VIII. She succeeded Anne Boleyn as queen consort following the latter's execution for trumped up charges of high treason, incest and adultery in May 1536. She died of postnatal complications less than two weeks after the birth of her only child, a son who reigned as Edward VI.

Didnt her son die at 15 or 16? I read that he was controlled by Norfolk his whole reign, and he died young. Too young in my opinion. I dont like how people say that Jane was this image of perfection when in reality she was the most unattractive of Henry's wives. I think they're just putting her on a pedistal that's too high for her to reach. I dont know. Thats my opinion. There is no way Anne truly commited adultery or incest. She just doesnt seem like the type who would. I hope to give another perception into Anne's life with A Love Well Lived (my book Im writting). I feel so bad for Elizabeth, Mary, and Edward for how their father treated them, though :(
Its so sad.. :(
How, exactly, would Anne have committed treason? Would it be derived from the accusation that she committed adultery? I never understood THAT part hehh

Well, accoding to Henry VIII, she was his favourtie wife which is made him think that she was the most beautiful wife where Anne Boleyn wasn't beautiful in the view of tudor era. Pale skinned was consider to represent the beauty, Anne Boleyn has olive skin, dark hair etc.

As for adultery and incest issue, I strongest believe that Anne was truly innocent, I dont think she would do such thing, she loves Henry. I say all wives are victims of Henry because Henry think he was a king, he will get whatever he please to.
I agree whole heartedly
