Best Answer

Catherine of Aragon was important in European history for a number of reasons. For one, she was the youngest daughter of Spanish monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella (who we also know of who financed Christopher Columbus's voyages to the New World) Catherine would later grow up to be the 1st wife of the infamous King Henry VIII, and her refusal to go for a divorce and retire into a nunnery when Henry fell head over heels for Anne Boleyn led to Henry breaking away from the Catholic Church. And last but not least, Catherine of Aragon was the mother of Mary Tudor, Henry VIII's eldest daughter who would later inherit the throne and earn the nickname 'Bloody Mary'.

Well one of the reasons is that she was Henry VIII's first wife. Also in a way she wasn't technically married to him. Because he couldn't perform intercourse (or rumpy-pumpy) on his brother's widow. Also, refusal to consummate a marriage (again rumpy-pumpy) was grounds for annulment and it still is today. Also, when a marriage is annulled, it really means that the marriage wasn't legal in the first place so in Henry's point of view, he was never married to Catherine of Aragon.

Where did Catherine of Aragon live?

Catherine of Aragon was the first wife of Henry VIII ( who tried to have as many spouses as his name, but only managed 6) - and she died of natural causes. a daughter of the union became Mary I or Mary Tudor-a.k.a. Bloody Mary- imagine having a nice Spanish Princess for a mother and a sex maniac for a daddy! small wonder Mary got out of hand. It is often forgotten- but it is in her last name- that Catherine of Aragon was a Spanish lady! Maybe they should have had Raquel Welch play her in the late-sixties miniseries about Henry VIII. Anyhow she died of natural causes.
