The Six Wives of Henry VIII

PBS has created this fun and historical site (a complement to a PBS program of the same name) that examines the life and times of Henry VIII through the biographies of his six wives. The site is beautifully designed using the latest in multi-media resources. When you get to the site use the menu just below the 6 thumbnail photos of the wives including:

  • Meet the Wives — a timeline biography of each of the women who were married to the king.
  • Find a Wife — take the challenge to play matchmaker for King Henry VIII but be careful not to lose your head with a mismatch in this game.
  • Portrait of a King — examine the life of Henry VIII and its historical impact.
  • Tudor Times — explore the Tudor era of history.

The site is rich with resources and activities that will supplement any study of European history, and is most appropriate for middle grades and up.
