There is also one bonus point to anybody who submitted their wives in the correct order. A second bonus point was available to anybody who also submitted one of the little poems that help people remember the wives, although that went unclaimed this time.

@Bibliovore - Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Catherine Parr (1 Bonus Point)
@Stephen - Catherine of Aragon, Catherine Parr, Catherine Howard (1 regular point)
@ROSE - Anne Boleyn, Catherine of Aragon, Catherine Parr (0 points)
