David Starkey tells the story of Jane Seymour, whose demure veneer masked a woman adept at the sexual politics of the time. She succeeded in bearing the king a son, but died just 12 days later. The historian also discusses fourth wife Anne of Cleves, whom Henry considered so repulsive he could not consummate the relationship, leading to a humiliating divorce.
