Now that was real fun!
This is what I got:
quote*Congratulations! You are Jane Seymour!
Jane Seymour was Henry's third wife. Jane was a mild woman, but she could also be a brave peace-maker: she urged Henry to reconcile with his estranged daughter Mary, and she spoke up when Henry was hanging monks left and right. (Suggesting things to Henry was very difficult, as he might throw a turkey leg at you or have you thrown in gaol)

Jane died in childbirth after only a year of marriage, but she was the only of Henry's wives to be buried next to him, and he mourned her for three years: his beloved, gentle Jane.*quote ends

I thought the questions were funny and entertaining in the way they were worded, not your everyday quiz. Yeah, I can see you as Jane Seymour :)

You see, we don't get much of education on his wives. The only thing about I seem to know about J. Seymour is her name and her having been one wife to King Henry VIII. I'm sorry :(
I'm also unsure whether I'm that nice and peacemaker type at all. But I like that the husband loved her the best, as it seems....
Well, I think I'd rather read your pages on these ladies than whimper about not knowing a thing about them...:-P
