Henry VIII & His Six Wives, 1972

Jane starred with Keith Mitchell as Henry VIII's doomed third wife, Jane Seymour, in the film "Henry VIII and His Six Wives" (releasd July 13th 1972) based on the 1970 BBC six-part television production "The Six Wives of Henry VIII", which also starred Keith Mitchell as Henry VIII.



















In the real life, 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. Jane Seymour died of postnatal complications less than two weeks after the birth of her only child, a son who reigned as Edward VI. She was the only one of Henry's wives to receive a queen's funeral, and his only consort to be buried beside him in St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, as she was the only consort to have a male heir.
