Henry VIII and His Wife aka Deborah in Disguise

I really think this is wonderful! I took the test to find out which of Henry's wives I would be most like and guess who!!?? It seems Anna. I think she was the luckiest of all. She married Henry when he was too sick to have sex, when he was suffering from his sore leg, and didn't want her around. So, rather than kill her...he gave her an annullment, settled her with a wonderful, rich, annual pension...a house of her own, plenty of time and space, stitching things and food, servants and a happy, undisturbed life. She "threw extravagant parties and dined on delicacies for the rest of her life."
(sighing here) I think I would have liked being her. :] He may have called her the "Flanders Mare," but I say she was the "Foxy Filly!"

Wonder who each of you are??
Hugs, Deb

Hallo Deborah,
ich denke da hast du einen Fehler gemacht.

Anna von Kleve hatte Glück und kam mit einem blauen Auge davon, sie wurde nicht hingerichtet.War in späten Jahren eine gute Freundin von Heinrich geworden und sie schaute nach seinen Kindern, sie führte aber ein isoliertes Leben am Hof.

Ich komme aus der Stadt Kleve - Cleve und liebe ebenfalls Anna. Für meine Stadt habe ich ein Mustertuch entworfen........ vielleicht hast du ja mal Lust und besuchst meine Seite.

Sie befindet sich im Aufbau, sie ist noch nicht so schön und Groß wie deine aber aller Anfang ist schwer.

Liebe Grüsse, aus Kleve am Niederrhein
Astrid
