Thursday Royal Trivia...
The Tudor Royals~ all had their own mottos. They would have these mottos engraved into saddles, silver plate, their Coat's of Arms, etc. It was a declaration of what they live by. I thought it would be interesting to learn what each of Henry's wives had for their individual motto. It has been very enlightening discovering what they were. Each motto gives an insight into the personality of the individual queens. Henry's fits like a glove. I think you will enjoy this and hopely it will create a lively discussion.
Henry VIII ~ "God and My Right"
Catherine of Aragon ~ "Humble and Loyal"
Anne Boleyn ~ "Most Happy"
Jane Seymour ~ "Bound to Obey and Serve"
Anne of Cleves ~ "God Send Me Well to Keep"
Catherine Howard ~ "No Other Will but His"
Katherine Parr ~ "To be Useful in All I Do"
