My current guilty pleasure is watching The Tudors on DVD (a mother’s day present from my boys – clever chaps.) All of which set me thinking: how well do you know your Tudor history?
So here’s a simple question:
How Many Wives did Henry VIII have?<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
a) 6
b) 5
c) 4
d) 2
<o:p> </o:p>
Now those of you with an English education will be counting on your fingers: Divorced, Beheaded, Died, Divorced, Beheaded, Survived.
So would it surprise you to learn the correct answer is d)? TWO wives.

I love The Tudors too. It's such a fascinating time period.
