Why Henry VIII Was Not Jane Seymour's True Love
Tumblr media
Jane Seymour has a reputation of having been Henry VIII's true love. However, there are many reasons that this probably isn't true. In fact, if you look deep enough, you'll see that Jane's journey to the throne was not too different from Anne Boleyn's.
1. Similar to the Boleyns, the Seymours were also trying to get power through their daughters. Jane was the child of two very powerful courtiers. Her main purpose in life, as a noblewoman of her time, was to snag a rich husband. Just like Anne Boleyn, Henry's love for Jane was almost definitely orchestrated by her brother and father, not by organic or "true" love.
2. Jane was a Catholic and admired Katherine of Aragon. Due to this, it is very likely that she held resentment for Henry's treatment of Katherine, as well as his decision to split from the Roman Catholic Church. Doesn't sound like a good backdrop for love, does it?
3. Jane wasn't being herself in the relationship. When Henry started to get frustrated with Anne, the Seymours saw an opportunity to get more power for their family. So they shoved Jane in Henry's view, giving her directions of how to catch his eye. Since he was annoyed with Anne, who was anything but meek, Jane was told to play the doe-eyed, sweet and shy role. This is a similar technique that the Boleyns used with Anne Boleyn, actually (Katherine was devout and conservative and Anne was supposed to be free-flowing and progressive).
4. The one time that Jane stood up to Henry, he threatened her. During their marriage, Jane asked Henry to pardon those who participated in the Pilgrimage of Grace, a protest against Henry's decision to split with the Roman Catholic Church, as well as his decision to dissolve many monasteries in England for monetary gain. He refused to do so, reminding Jane of what happened to her predecessor, Anne, when she tried to meddle in his affairs -- insinuating that he would execute her if she got too involved in his political decisions. This further shows that they did not have true love for each other. On Henry's end, why would you threaten to kill someone you love? On Jane's end, it would be terrifying to be threatened by your husband, and it definitely wouldn't make you love him.
5. Henry was likely getting frustrated with Jane before she gave him a son. Before giving birth to Edward, Jane actually miscarried a baby in the first year of their marriage, and we all know that once his wife starts miscarrying babies, Henry gets annoyed. He was also probably annoyed with her for the slight "meddling" prior mentioned, and if he was getting annoyed enough to even insinuate an execution, he was probably pretty upset. If he only started loving her more than his other wives after she gave him a son and then died, that's pretty messed up. That does not sound like true love or even love at all. Love that conditional, love where you only earn it if you successfully give that person that one extremely specific thing that they value way too much, is not love.
The king's "favorite wife" does not, at all, mean true love. Jane may have been Henry's favorite wife but that is for two reasons: She wasn't, or at least pretended not to be, strong-willed, unlike her two predecessors and she gave Henry a son. This, however, does not mean that they held true love for each other. Because of the reasons above, it is unlikely that Jane was being herself at all in this relationship so there is no way that their marriage was a product of true love.
It is truly a shame that we have no idea who this woman was just because of the way that life was like for women back then. It didn't matter how you felt, what you thought or who your true self was, you were expected to do anything and everything to get a rich and powerful husband. So, let's stop labeling Jane as "boring" or "quiet", because we have no right to assume what she was like based on the accounts of the sexist men in her life.

"I am not some genie bound to your whim." He pushes off the tree. "Nor am I some petty forest spirit, content with granting favors for mortal trinkets. I am stronger than your god and older than your devil. I am the darkness between the stars, and the roots beneath the earth. I am promise, and potential, and when it comes to playing games, I divine the rules, I set the pieces, and I choose when to play. And tonight, I say no."
V. E. Schwab, The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue

You couldn't reason with ambition. All you could do was moderate the damage it did. Try to get ahead of it, imagine problems before they started, smooth out the road for the impractical person with their gaze on the heavens.
