OTD January 7 - Catherine of Aragon
1 / 36
Public domain

1536: Catherine of Aragon, who was queen of England from 1509 until 1533 as the first wife of King Henry VIII, dies at age 50 in Kimbolton Castle in Cambridgeshire, England. Upset that the marriage hadn't produced any surviving sons, Henry had their marriage declared invalid and banished her from the court so that he could marry his mistress Anne Boleyn. Henry had first tried to have the marriage to Catherine annulled, leading England to split with the Roman Catholic Church over Pope Clement VII's refusal to grant the annulment.
