9. I shared my name with two more wives
We married the same man
Not all at once, I beg to say -
He also had Jane, Anne and Anne.

Your Answer: Katherine

The correct answer was Catherine.

Henry Vlll married three women named Catherine (or Catharine/ Katherine). His first wife was Catherine of Aragon, then came Anne Boleyn, then Jane Seymour, then Anne of Cleves, Catherine Howard and finally Catherine Parr.



I object to this one!!! "Katherine" and "Catherine" are the same name and spelling it with a "K" was much more common in Tudor times! The "C" spelling is a more modern version- although Katherine of Aragon is sometimes spelled with a "C", as her names comes from the Spanish version -"Catalina". But in contemporary documents the women themselves used the "K" version.

Anyways- unfair question!
