From Wondery comes the latest from Even the Rich co-hosts Brooke Siffrinn and Aricia Skidmore-Williams. Even the Royals takes us inside the cloistered world of royal families, past and present, where wealth and status often come at the expense of your freedom – and maybe even your life. In these stories, very human emotions, like jealousy, love, disgust, have the power to reshape the world.

    Jane Seymour was a seemingly unremarkable woman destined to live on the fringes of other people's great lives – until she catches the eye of the king. Now that she has a better future in sight, Jane will use everything she’s learned at court to ensure that she becomes Henry’s third queen. But marrying Henry will turn out to be the easy part. After Anne Boleyn is beheaded, it’s clear to Jane that there are no happily ever after guarantees with King Henry VIII.

    In Part One, Anne climbed the ranks and became Henry’s second wife. Now she has to make up where the last queen failed and give Henry a male heir. But when that proves easier said than done, Henry’s eyes start to wander…right over to Anne’s new lady-in-waiting, Jane Seymour. Anne wants to stop history from repeating itself. But she has no idea how low her enemies will go to get her out of the way.

    The Six Wives of Henry VIII: Anne Boleyn Part 1

    Anne Boleyn has been painted by history as a woman-hating vixen who weaseled her way into being Queen number two. But the real story is way more complicated. Anne started out as a pious lady-in-waiting who garnered the King’s attention. When Henry’s interest grows into a full-blown obsession, Anne decides she wants to be more than just another mistress. But first she’ll have to convince him to leave his first wife – which means changing the religion of an entire country. NBD.

    The Six Wives of Henry VIII: Catherine of Aragon Part 2

    In part one, Catherine’s once ideal marriage to Henry VIII started to sour when she didn't provide a son to inherit the throne. And now that he has a younger girlfriend, Henry is ready to do whatever it takes to replace and erase Catherine – and make Anne his new queen. But two decades on the throne have turned Catherine into a formidable opponent. And she’s determined to hold on to her crown – no matter how ugly the fight gets.

    The Six Wives of Henry VIII: Catherine of Aragon, Part 1

    The Six Wives of Henry VIII: Catherine of Aragon, Part 1

    We mostly remember Henry VIII’s six wives because of their fate at the hands of history’s most notorious ex. But there’s so much more to them than divorce, death and beheadings. 




    Henry’s first wife, Catherine of Aragon, was a Spanish princess who grew up believing that being Queen of England was her destiny and God-given right. But getting–and staying–on the throne turns out to be a lot more complicated than she thought. When she isn’t able to have a healthy son and heir to the throne, Henry decides her time is up. But Catherine refuses to back down, even when someone new arrives and threatens her place on the throne.
