Biography

Jane Seymour was the daughter of Sir John Seymour of Wiltshire and Margaret Wentworth, and was King Henry VIII's fifth cousin three times removed. Her exact birth date is debated; it is usually given as 1509; however, it has been noted that at her funeral 29 women walked in succession [1]. Since it was customary for the attendant company to mark every year of the deceased's life in numbers, this implies she was born in 1508. She was not educated as highly as Catherine or Anne: she could only read and write her name. Instead she was taught in needlework and household management, which was popular at that time for women. She became a lady-in-waiting in 1530, in the last year of Catherine of Aragon's reign. After Catherine was divorced and Anne Boleyn became queen, she served her instead. Jane caught the king's eye in September 1535 when Henry was returning from a march and he stayed at the Seymours' stately home. His love for her was not confirmed until February the following year when his marriage to Anne was falling rapidly apart. His desire to marry her may have predisposed him to believe the false accusations of adultery and witchcraft against Anne. Sir John Seymour (c. ... Not to be confused with Wilshire. ...

Henry became betrothed to Jane on 20 May 1536, the day after Anne's execution, and married her on 30 May. Jane was publicly proclaimed as queen on the 4 June. She was never officially crowned, due to a plague epidemic in London where the coronation was to take place after the of the birth of her son. It has also been suggested that Henry was reluctant to crown Jane before she had fulfilled her duty as a queen by bearing him a son and a male heir. is the 140th day of the year (141st in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

As queen consort, Jane was strict and formal. She was close only to her female relations, Anne Stanhope (her brother's wife) and her sister, Elizabeth Seymour. The glittering social life and extravagance of the queen's household, which had reached its peak during the time of Anne Boleyn, was replaced by a strict enforcement of decorum in Jane's time. For example, the dress requirements for ladies of the court were detailed down to the number of pearls that were to be sewn into each lady's skirt, and the French fashions introduced by Anne Boleyn were banned. Politically, Jane appears to have been conservative. However, her only involvement in national affairs, in 1536, when she asked for pardons for participants in the Pilgrimage of Grace[2] rebellion, was abandoned after the King reminded her of the fate the other queens met with when they "meddled in his affairs".[2] Anne Stanhope after the execution of her husband Sir Edward Seymour, The Protector Anne Stanhope (1497 - April 16, 1587), was the daughter of Sir Edward Stanhope and Elizabeth Bourchier. ...

In early 1537, Jane became pregnant. During her pregnancy, she developed a craving for quail, which the King ordered for her from Calais and Flanders. Jane went into seclusion in September 1537 and gave birth to a male heir, the future King Edward VI of England on 12 October at Hampton Court Palace. After she participated in the prince's christening on October 15, it became clear that Jane was seriously ill. She had contracted puerperal fever and died on 24 October at Hampton Court. She was buried at Windsor Castle after a funeral in which her stepdaughter, Princess Mary (later Queen Mary I), acted as chief mourner. Henry VIII redirects here. ...

Above her grave, there was for a time the following inscription:

After her death, Henry wore black and did not remarry for three years. Henry always remembered her with affection, forgetting the youthful days he spent with Catherine of Aragon and his obsession with Anne Boleyn. Historians have speculated that it was Jane's "achievement" of securing Henry a male heir that made her so fondly remembered, that, or dying before he had tired of her.

In film

  • Jane was first portrayed in film in the 1920 German film Anne Boleyn by Aud Edege Nissen.
  • Thirteen years later, Wendy Barrie played a Jane opposite Charles Laughton's Henry VIII in Alexander Korda's highly-acclaimed masterpiece The Private Life of Henry VIII.
  • It was not until 1969 that Jane Seymour appeared in the screen again, and it was this time only for a few minutes in Hal B. Wallis' Oscar-winning Anne of the Thousand Days. Jane was played by Lesley Paterson, opposite Richard Burton as Henry VIII. Towards the movie's end, Anne Boleyn (played by Canadian actress Geneviève Bujold) dismisses her as a woman with "the face of a simpering sheep and the manners - but not the morals."
  • A year later, as part of the series The Six Wives of Henry VIII, a 90-minute BBC television drama, the segment titled "Jane Seymour" presented her as a shy but honest introvert, devoted to her husband. Henry was played by Keith Michell, and Jane by Anne Stallybrass.
  • In 1973, this interpretation of Jane was repeated in Henry VIII and his Six Wives, in which Keith Michell reprised his role from the BBC drama; on this occasion Jane Seymour was played by Jane Asher.
  • Jane was played by Charlotte Roach in Dr. David Starkey's documentary series on Henry's queens in 2001.
  • Jane appeared briefly, played by Naomi Benson, in the BBC television drama The Other Boleyn Girl, opposite Jared Harris as Henry VIII and Jodhi May as Anne Boleyn.
  • In October 2003, in the 2-part ITV drama Henry VIII, Ray Winstone starred as the king. Part 2 charted the king's life from his marriage to Jane Seymour (played by Emilia Fox) until his funeral in 1547. Jane was presented as a woman of moral courage and integrity.
  • TV Guide reports that Anita Briem will portray Jane Seymour as lady- in- waiting to Anne Boleyn in the second season of The Tudors.

In song

The English ballad The Death of Queen Jane (Child #170) is about the death of Jane Seymour following the birth of Prince Edward. The story as related in the ballad is historically inaccurate, but apparently reflects the popular view at the time of the events surrounding her death. The historical fact is that Prince Edward was born naturally, and that his mother succumbed to infection and died twelve days later. The Death of Queen Jane is a English ballad that describes the events surrounding the death of a Queen Jane. ... The Child Ballads are a collection of 305 ballads from England and Scotland, and their American variants, collected by Francis James Child. ...


In the ballad, during long labour, Queen Jane repeatedly asks that her side be opened to save the baby. In most versions, she is refused repeatedly until finally someone -- usually King Henry -- succumbs to her pleas and allows the surgery that results in her death.


Most versions of the song end with the contrast between the joy of the birth of the Prince and the grief of the death of the Queen.


From version 170A:

The baby was christened with joy and much mirth,
Whilst poor Queen Jane's body lay cold under earth:
There was ringing and singing and mourning all day,
The Princess Elizabeth went weeping away

The song Lady Jane by the Rolling Stones also holds some connection. The song can be interpreted as Henry's sadness over the loss of Jane, because she was the only wife who actually gave him a much-wanted son, and yet her life was the price of the achievement. The song also mentions a 'Lady Anne' and that fact that the narrator can't be expected to love her when he has, or had, Lady Jane. Anne of Cleves followed Jane Seymour, and Henry quickly divorced her (on the much more fickle ground that she was not attractive). For the historical person, see Lady Jane Grey. ... This article is about the rock band. ... Anne of Cleves (22 September 1515 – 16 July 1557) was the fourth wife of Henry VIII of England from 6 January 1540 to 9 July 1540. ...


Rick Wakeman had a pipe-organ based instrumental with Seymour's name on the concept album The Six Wives of Henry VIII. It was made to sound mainly like a typical song from her lifetime, save for a synthesiser solo and drums. This article does not cite any references or sources. ... The Six Wives of Henry VIII is the title of a 1973 album by progressive rock keyboard player Rick Wakeman. ...


Historiography

Jane was widely praised as "the fairest, the discreetest, and the most meritous of all Henry VIII's wives" in the centuries after her passing away. One historian, however, took serious umbrage to this view in the 19th century. Victorian scholar Agnes Strickland, author of encyclopaedic studies of French, Scottish, and English royal women, said that the story of "Anne Boleyn's last agonised hours" and Henry VIII's swift remarriage to Jane Seymour "is repulsive enough, but it becomes tenfold more abhorrent when the woman who caused the whole tragedy is loaded with panegyric." Henry VIII redirects here. ... Alternative meaning: Nineteenth Century (periodical) (18th century — 19th century — 20th century — more centuries) As a means of recording the passage of time, the 19th century was that century which lasted from 1801-1900 in the sense of the Gregorian calendar. ... Agnes Strickland (1796-1874) was an English historical writer. ...


Modern historical writers, particularly Alison Weir and Antonia Fraser, paint a favourable portrait of a woman of discretion and good-sense -- "a strong-minded matriarch in the making," says Weir. Others are not convinced. Alison Weir (born 1951) is a British writer of history books for the general public, mostly in the form of biographies about British kings and queens. ... Lady Antonia Fraser, née Pakenham, (born August 27, 1932) is a British author of history and novels, best known for writing biographies. ...


Hester W. Chapman and Eric Ives resurrected Strickland's view of Jane Seymour, and believe she played a crucial and conscious role in the cold-blooded plot to bring Anne Boleyn to the executioner's block. David Starkey and Karen Lindsey are both relatively dismissive of Jane's importance in comparison to that of Henry's other queens -- particularly Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn and Catherine Parr. Joanna Denny, Marie Louise Bruce and Carolly Erickson also refrain from giving overly-sympathetic accounts of Jane's life and career.

England Under The Tudors: Queen Jane Seymour (c.1509-1537) (1289 words)
Jane Seymour, the third consort of Henry the Eighth, was the eldest daughter of Sir John Seymour, or Wolf Hall, Wilts, and Margaret, daughter of Sir John Wentworth, of Nettlestead in Suffolk.
Jane whilst Queen, warned by the fate of Anne Boleyn, of the impropriety of a too great freedom of speech and manners, took to the opposite extreme, put a bridle on her tongue, and led such a passive existence, that until the birth of her son, we have nothing of importance to record of her.
Henry was particularly desirous that Jane Seymour should receive the honours of a coronation; but the prevalence of the plague at Westminster, and Jane's advanced state of pregnancy, caused the ceremony to be put off till after her confinement, when her unexpected death prevented her from being crowned at all.
Jane Seymour: Biography, Portraits, Primary Sources (1723 words)
Jane Seymour fulfilled her most important duty as queen, but she was never crowned and died just twelve days after the long and arduous birth.
Her father was Sir John Seymour of Wolf Hall in Wiltshire; he served in the Tournai campaign of 1513 and accompanied Henry VIII to the Field of the Cloth of Gold in 1520.
The Seymour rise to prominence at Henry's court mirrored that of the Boleyns; it was the path sought by all English families with a minor pedigree or clever son.
