Catherine of Aragon

 

Not included below because of large family space challenges, the youngest daughter of Ferdinand and Isabella was Catherine of Aragon (1485 - 1536 (51)), who at the age of three was betrothed to Arthur (aged two), the son of Henry VII of England, the inventor of the Tudors.  They got married in 1501 but Arthur only lasted six months before dying of "sweating sickness" (he was buried in Worcester Cathedral).

 

17 years' old Catherine was then booked by Arthur's young brother, the future Henry VIII (1491 - 1509 - 1547 (56)) (aged 11) to become the first of what turned out to be six wives.  As a sister of Joan (the Mad), Catherine was an aunty of the Habsburg Emperor Charles V - which was one reason perhaps why Henry did not find some excuse to execute her.  Catherine is buried in Peterborough Cathedral - one of the Abbeys that Henry upgraded to cathedral status.
