1491: Henry VIII

In the reign of Henry VIII (1509–1547), Berkhamsted Castle is largely forgotten. In 1503, the castle in the care of an Under-Keeper for the king. Henry grants the Manor of Berkhamsted his successive wives: in 1509 to Catherine of Aragon, in 1533 to Anne Boleyn, and in 1536 to Jane Seymour, none of whom is known to have visited the town.
