  1. And the next wife, Anne Boleyn, had three miscarriages of (probable) males, too.

    Given the six wives and countless mistresses, Henry VIII had an insanely weak outcome on living children.

    Two daughters (both childless), one illegitimate son (childless), one legitimate son (dead age 15, childless).

    As far as we know, no grandchildren.
