Which of Henry VIII's wives are you?

When I saw this quiz, I knew I had to blog it for the amusement of my sister, who is obsessed with English history, particularly monarchs such as Henry VIII. I saw it over at the Aspiring Academic's. I am pleased to "be" the wife who actually outlived him.

Which of Henry VIII's wives are you?
this quiz was made by Lori Fury

Here's something else the quiz's results page mentioned:
Katherine Parr spent nearly her whole life married to crotchety old men: Henry was the THIRD old fart she was forced to marry. Is it any wonder she turned to books and religion to occupy her time?

Katherine wasn't just smart, she was a tiny bit uppity, too: she almost got herself thrown in jail for arguing with His Royal Fatness about some theological issues. After Henry croaked, Katherine dropped the prim and proper act and married Thomas Seymour, a handsome, dashing pirate kind of guy who was also as dumb as a post.

The quiz has some, um, interesting questions. I had to get hypothetical with a few of them...
